In the heatwave days of summer
With the sun beating down all the time
I've been wondering why it's the ocean that always brings
Love or death
Sailers coming home or going to rest

And I've never known many sailers
Except my brother, but now he flies planes
And I've been to a few of the oceans myself but I've never
Crossed their depths
I dive right in but I swim right back

And I find that time's slow passing
Is a lot like the tide rolling in
If you don't look fast, waves will break and they'll crash and they'll steal you
Out to sea
Never again to be heard or seen

Or you can wait like a fool all sticky with sand
For the water to come wash your limbs
Oh you can wait like a fool all night and all day instead of wading
Deeper in
Instead of diving deeper in
You've got to dive a little deeper in
