  • In your ocean, I'm ankle deep
    I feel the waves crashin' on my feet
    It's like I know where I need to be
    But I can't figure out, yeah I can't figure out

    Just how much air I will need to breathe
    When your tide rushes over me
    There's only one way to figure out
    Will ya let me drown, will ya let me drown

    Hey now, this is my desire
    Consume me like a fire, 'cause I just want something beautiful
    To touch me, I know that I'm in reach
    'Cause I am down on my knees, I'm waiting for something beautiful
    Oh, oh, ohh something beautiful

    And the water is risin' quick
    And for years I was scared of it
    We can't be sure when it will subside
    So I won't leave your side, no I can't leave your side

    Hey now, this is my desire
    Consume me like a fire, 'cause I just want something beautiful
    To touch me, I know that I'm in reach
    'Cause I am down on my knees, I'm waiting for something beautiful
    Oh, oh, ohh something beautiful
    Oh, oh, ohh something beautiful

    In a daydream, I couldn't live like this
    I wouldn't stop until I found something beautiful
    When I wake up, and all I want I have
    You know I still won't have what I need
    Something beautiful

    Hey now, this is my desire
    Consume me like a fire, 'cause I just want something beautiful
    To touch me, I know that I'm in reach
    'Cause I am down on my knees, I'm waiting for something beautiful
    Oh, oh, ohh something beautiful
    Oh, oh, ohh something beautiful Writer/s: Nathaniel Rinehart, William Rinehart
