The Ocean

When you wake what is it that you think of most?
When your bed is empty do you really sleep alone?
If I imagine you, body next to another.

All around me new love and it makes me sad.
All around me feel assured that you’ll be back,
If I imagine you, body next to another.

Stop crying to the ocean, stop crying over me.
Stop worrying over nothing, stop worrying over me.
So it’s been so long since you said,
Well I know what I want and what I want’s right here with you.

Life is the con. You buy a place; get married; you get streaks in your hair; you buy the pair of shoes that everyone else is wearing. And somehow you fit in, you belong, and somehow that ensures that you live a long, healthy life. But it doesn’t. But we’re being berated by society, the media, commercials and our peers that these things are the things you have to do to maintain a normal existence. And it’s all a con.
