An Ocean Apart

Reading time: 2 – 3 minutes

AN OCEAN APART
(for him)

Now we are together
sitting outside in the sunshine
But soon we’ll be apart
and soon it’ll be night at noon

Now things are fine
the clouds are far away up in the sky
But soon I’ll be on a plane
and soon you’ll feel the cold rain

You promised to stay in touch
when we’re apart
You promised before i left
that you’ll always love me.

Time goes by
and people cry
and everything goes too fast

Now we have each other
enjoying each moment
with one another
But soon I’ll be miles away
and soon the phone will be our only way

Now I’m in your arms
Feeling pure love and awe
but soon I’ll be alone
and soon your voice will change in tone

You promised we’ll never break up
over the telephone
You said our love was stronger
than an ocean apart

Time goes by and people lie
and everything goes too fast

Let’s not fool ourselves in vain
this far away trip will give us pain
We’ll have to be so strong
to keep our love from going wrong

Distance will make us cold
even put our love on hold
But soon we’ll meet again
and soon it’ll be bright at noon again

You promised not to lose faith
in our love when i’m away
You promised so much to me
but now you’ve left me

We go by and then we lie
and all this time we wasted
Time goes by
and people lie
and everything goes too fast

Time went by
and then we died
and everything went too fast

everything went too fast
everything went too fast
everything went too fast

– Julie Delpy / Before Sunset
