STRAIGHT INTO THE OCEAN Lyrics and Music by Allen Ling © 2018

VERSE
That night you said goodbye to me
Were you really leaving me?
I was in a state of disbelief
With heartbreak there’s no quick release
They say time and distance eases pain
But many of my questions still remain so I’m…

CHORUS
Walking straight into the ocean
An easy cure for my devotion
Erases all my love illusions
Gives me a peaceful conclusion
You say you got all the solutions
But you’re the source of my confusion
So don’t give me another notion
I’m walking straight into the ocean

VERSE
That night you said goodbye to me
You were really leaving me
I’m still in a state of disbelief
My heartbreak has no quick release

They say time and distance eases pain
Yet many of your answers don’t explain so I’m..

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I still want to be your protector
but now I’m just a spectre
You say you won’t forget me
But I won’t wait, because you won’t return
And someday I will to live to learn, but right now…

I’m walking straight into the ocean
An easy fix for my devotion
Erases all my love illusions
Gives me a peaceful conclusion
You say you got all the solutions
But you’re the source of my confusion
So don’t give me another notion
I’m walking straight into the ocean

Walking straight into the Ocean
An easy cure for my devotion
Erases all my love illusions
I’m walking straight into the ocean
