Verse:

Sitting here under a moon lit sky.
Watching time pass me bye.
The waters of this land,
Push forth against the sand.

I see myself in water.
My image becomes distorted.
As I drown.
Silently on the shore.

I can think of nothing more.
Even though life has escaped me,
These waters haven't defaced me ?
The ocean remains calm.
Holding me gently in its palm.

Chorus:

As the ocean breeze sets in.
This burial begans.
For me, the loner on the shore.
There will be nothing more.
Of the loner on the shore.

Verse:

Once again.
Nature settles the water.
Breathing gets harder.
As I accept the afterlife ahead of me.

I don't really understand.
Is drowning even plausible?
When there is no water after all ?
The water glistens in the moonlight.
Life or Death ?
Both seem alright.



Chorus:

As the ocean breeze sets in.
This burial begans.
For me, the loner on the shore.
There will be nothing more.
Of the loner on the shore.


Verse :


Day starts to take its course.
As the people of the sea.
Feel my remorse.
Even though im still here.
The message is so clear.

The sea has a life of its own.
Dieing here.
Becomes unknown.
Even for me.
The loner of the sea.

When your around the ocean for awhile,
You become interested in it.
This one is about the strength and true power of the ocean.
And how it took the life out of a man that was still alive.
The Loner of the Sea

cool. but. Watching time pass me bye. =BY
As I drown.
Silently on the shore
. = I dont think this is a normal order, I would say something different.

This burial begans. =BEGINS
When there is no water after all ? I can be wrong but I dont think you mean it like this, I would say AT. Now its like you thought there was water before but you found out there wasn't if you know what I mean.

No offence, just tips, sounds deep lol!

Thanks for the tips smile.gif

Im not going to bother correcting the spelling but thankyou ( I suck at spelling smile.gif)



As for the lyrics, I thought they made sense ?
The confusion that you might have had is what the "loner of the sea" had.
He was thinking about life and death and thought for a breif moment what it would be like if he was actually drowning and how that would effect others ? So the confusion of whether or not there is water, is kind of metaphoric to show how confused the character really is ? Hope that clears things up ?
It was a hard one to write and I appreciate your post, Thank you biggrin.gif
