Lyrics – Build Me An Ocean

Build Me An Ocean (Aquamarine, 2018)

Written & produced by Ámaris Wenceslas

When we fell for each other

Nobody told us there would be so many tears

Maybe it was because of something that we lost

Maybe it wasn’t meant to be

And even though it hurts to leave you

I know it’s the right thing to do

And even though you build me an ocean

It won’t make this love whole again

Build me an ocean

Build me an ocean

A flood made of tears

Has drowned our love

Build me an ocean

Build me an ocean

A flood made of tears

Won’t make our drowned love whole again

Boy, we made our love run aground

And we gotta pull ourselves out the sand

All these stupid fights and tears

Have destroyed this love

Why do you have to make it so hard

Why does this ocean tear us apart

Or could we find this shore again

And give this love another chance

Build me an ocean

Build me an ocean

A flood made of tears

Has drowned our love

Build me an ocean

Build me an ocean

A flood made of tears

Won’t make our drowned love whole again

Our love has been swallowed by a crushing ocean
