Hannigan, Lisa - Ocean And A Rock Lyrics

What you at, my gentle spoken friend?
I lack a frame to put you in
When you're an ocean and a rock away

I feel you in the pocket of my overcoat
My fingers wrap around your words
They take the shape of games we play

I feed your words through my buttonholes
I pin them to my fingerless gloves
Green and prone to fraying

Thoughts of you warm my bones
I'm on the way, I'm on the phone,
Let's get lost, me and you,
An ocean and a rock is nothing to me.

I am far away
From where you lay awake the day
While you fall to sleep
An ocean and a rock away

I keep you in the pockets of my dresses
And the bristles of my brushes
Spin you into my curls today

I spoon you into my coffee cup,
Spin you through a delicate wash
I wear you all day,
I wear you all day

Thoughts of you warm my bones
I'm on the way, I'm on the phone
Let's get lost, me and you
An ocean and a rock is nothing to me

Thoughts of you warm my bones,
I'm on the way, I'm nearly home,
Let's get lost, me and you
An ocean and a rock is nothing to me

  13. Nikodaddy1

    I like all her stuff and all over again but this one i thing is my definitely number one.

  14. podge7

    2 words- Un Real!!

  15. Carlos Morillo

    man she's so pretty

  16. Kent Perrodin

    Her love is away, an ocean and a rock away, but that person has not really left her. It is a song of the deepest love in which "love" never has to be spoken, it is always there, all around. When work takes me or my wife away this is the first song I listen to and the distance doesn't seem so bad.


    you are so right

  17. Jesus Molina

    and what is this song saying? It's a great song and everything but I can't find the meaning of it o.o


    That’s OK. Art is usually not for everyone, but touches the same thing is people that made the artist make it. As opposed to the “art” industry, where they try to maximize the target group, because they try to make art into a business. Which cannot work, as the goals are mutually exclusive.
    This may not have touched you in your state now (ok, 5 years ago). And that’s OK. :)

    She said something about her friend that lives in Vancouver but she still resides in Ireland, when she introduced the song at her show in Vancouver.

    I saw her at 9:30 Club in DC last night. I hadn't heard of her before yesterday morning but I fell in love when I heard this song. I had to go. Amazing. I wanted to beg her not to stop playing. She very graciously greeted fans and signed autographs afterward. I admit I was a little starstruck; I barely said anything to her when she signed my LP. I wish I'd had the wherewithal to tell her it's one of the best shows I've ever attended and that the first song alone was worth the price of admission.

  20. Odd Todd

    She is The Song, She is the Music, She is the BEST Woman singer in the World !


    ohhh yes.

  52. turgsh01

    Thanks for the info :)

  53. Ken from Dublin

    This is the finest song by any Irish singer since...

    ...actually I can't think of a song by an Irish singer song writer that is better than this, even by Sinead O'Connor... maybe Gilbert O'Sullivan in his heyday with 'Alone Again (Naturally)' or 'Nothing Rhymed'.

    This song is a meisterwork, a masterpiece, just channelled down from the firmament and Lisa is the lightning rod catalyst and facilitator.

  54. turgsh01

    amazing song... and I wouldn't mind knowing what the name of the instrument she was playing... it looked unique, that's for sure.
    I can't wait for her 2nd cd to be out...

    Thanks for bringing this song/video to youtube :)

  55. Dizzzais
