  • Do you hear me?
    I'm talking to you
    Across the water, across the deep blue ocean
    Under the open sky, oh my
    Baby, I'm trying
    Boy, I hear you in my dreams
    I feel your whisper across the sea
    I keep you with me in my heart
    You make it easier when life gets hard

    Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
    Lucky to have been where I have been
    Lucky to be coming home again

    Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

    They don't know how long it takes
    (They don't know how long it takes)
    Waiting for a love like this
    Every time we say goodbye
    (Every time we say goodbye)
    I wish we had one more kiss
    I'll wait for you, I promise you, I will, I'm

    lucky I'm in love with my best friend
    Lucky to have been where I have been
    Lucky to be coming home again

    Lucky we're in love in every way
    Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
    Lucky to be coming home someday

    And so I'm sailing through the sea
    To an island where we'll meet
    You'll hear the music fill the air
    I'll put a flower in your hair
    Though the breezes, through the trees
    You move so pretty, you're all I see
    As the world keeps spinning 'round
    You hold me right here, right now

    Lucky I'm in love with my best friend
    Lucky to have been where I have been
    Lucky to be coming home again

    Lucky we're in love in every way
    Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
    Lucky to be coming home someday

    Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
    Ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh Writer/s: Colbie Caillat, Jason Mraz, Tim James Fagan

  • Emily from Langhorne, Pai love this song!! to me, it means that two people are having a long distance relationship
    "I'm talking to you
    Across the water across the deep blue ocean"
    ...
    "Boy I hear you in my dreams
    I feel your whisper across the sea"
    they have become best friends and they love each other. they talk about seeing each other again
    "Lucky to be coming home again"
    and they think/dream about seeing each other
    "And so I'm sailing through the sea
    To an island where we'll meet
    You'll hear the music fill the air
    I'll put a flower in your hair
    Though the breezes through trees
    Move so pretty you're all I see
    As the world keeps spinning round
    You hold me right here right now"
    again and how hard it is to say goodbye when they have to leave each other.
    "Every time we say goodbye
    I wish we had one more kiss"
    they also mention being truthful to each other even when their seperate
    "I'll wait for you I promise you, I will"
    basically, its a sweet song about two people who are apart from each other but realize how lucky they are that they have each other and are in love.
