Being As An Ocean - L'exquisite Douleur Lyrics




Well I can't get too close without wanting all of you
So I'll settle right into this back seat
But to be honest, I'm not sure if I can take the solitude
It's been a long time running
Since I sighted my first love
And this mountainside's only getting steeper
My breath's burning in my lungs
I wonder when I'm gonna catch a break
or at least be able to breathe easier
This drive is telling me to be all that I can't for her
You're not holding up your end of the bargain,
but I'll continue to hold up mine
'Cause I've always been a betting man
And I'm dying for you to prove me right
I see the potential you have inside
Maybe that's why I've continued to fight
You just can't see all that you are to me
So I'll just have to learn to be alright
Without you by my side
My bed seems so much colder at night
This chill doesn't seem to be going away
So I'll acquire a taste for its bite

Give these dry lips words to speak
A wandering soul, hopeful for living springs
Searching tirelessly for a well, blue and deep
From which to pull up strength, something cool to drink
There are deserts hidden deep inside you and me
Come now, sit for a while and breathe
You don't have to say a thing
Darling, your silence says everything

You're not holding up your end of the bargain,
but I'll continue to hold up mine
'Cause I've always been a betting man
And I'm just dying for you to prove me right

I just want to know your story
Learning, so I may love you complete
'Cause if we dig deep enough
There are wells hidden deep inside of you and me

You're not holding up your end of the bargain,
but I'll continue to hold up mine
'Cause I've always been a betting man
And I'm just dying for you to prove me right

  27. roy sniekers

    Pure hope.

  28. TheAvenger62

    Great song too bad the song title is in frenglish lol. The exquisite pain in French is "la douleur exquise".

  29. David Salkowski

    Easily my favorite band experience. My friend had been trying to bang some random wench from Bumble and before she disappeared into Oblivion she said, If you are going to Warped Tour you should see Being As An Ocean. Low and behold they start with this song and Joel walks off the stage into the audience and proceeds to mosh with us all without missing a line while the sky opened up and poured down on us. Great band hope to see you again in the future!!!

  30. Kay Bettencourt

    joel's trash talk shirt tho😍

  31. IЯΟΛ†

    Trash talk "destroy" huuuu

  32. Τσιγώνιας

    0:34 when you cant stand your own fart....

  33. Evan Fortunato

    The Mewithoutyou influence is strong on the verse

  34. fireman101235

    This song has me in tears. It means as much to me as she does. Maybe one day she will catch a glimpse of me in perfect light. Maybe one day she will feel for me as I have felt, and will always feel for her.
    Until then, I'll do everything I can to keep her next to me.
    I love you.

  35. Ali T

    I only like the singing at the end, I wish the whole song was like that.

  36. Shilajit Das Mahapatra

    my guiding force ❤

  37. Fvck Up

    Holy shit it just dawned on me Daniel from capsize filmed this holy shit he's talented badass song too

  38. Killingkarebear

    This song is the musical illustration of what I'm going through right now. Knowing the potential of another person that doesn't feel the same for you but not being able to walk away. "Cuz I've always been a betting man, and I'm just dying for you to prove me wrong."

  39. ThirdChildBlind

    Every single time I listen to this song I still think about you. It'll never change.

  40. I Brought The Horizon

  45. Quest for greatness

    Just saw them live. I thought their recordings had a lot of energy, but I wasn't even prepared for the energy they bring to their shows. One of the best performances I've ever seen.

    Zac Hore

    +cannonballbag You shouldn't. I felt much better 6 months ago when I couldn't connect to these lyrics...

    massively miniscule

    honestly I feel sorry for people who can...not in a bad way...it's just very emotional...very REAL music.

  88. Andres Laverde

    Jodidamente Perfecta esta cancion!

  89. Ryan Sutherland

    Does anybody know what Connor Denis (drummer) is using on his kick for the stick hits? That wooden block type thing. What's it called? Gone through so many kick rims because of stick hits while gigging.

    YHIMOfficial

    +Ryan Sutherland Just a simple chop block.

    Garrett G

    I think it's called a drum mute. If I'm wrong it's probably not hard to make one yourself. Wouldn't be that hard of a DIY

    Garrett G

    Ryan Sutherland it's actually called a chop block. It's just a block of wood that protects your bass rim from being damaged while hitting it. A lot of sjc artists use these, as it is an option available to them while customizing their set.
