  • Wild grey ocean, buried in my eyes
    The coarse town muscles through weekdays and 9 'til 5
    I finish working, compartmentalize
    With the wild grey ocean, buried in my eyes

    Always in the dark, I'd ask you such silly things
    Tore apart your heart, running around this town
    And in that weakness, I'll suffer until I die
    With the wild grey ocean, buried in my eyes

    I seldom see our, old gang 'round town
    Call them good time friends 'cause they're never there when shit goes down
    Like when my brother got jumped and they hurt him real bad
    I thought I'd lost him, he is all I have

    And I wonder where you are and if you have settled down
    Haven't felt my heart make a single sound
    Since that moment you cried like a little girl
    Behind you the wild grey ocean swept away my world Writer/s: Sam Fender
