Holding back the ocean Lyrics

Holding back the ocean by Rockie Lynne  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Holding back the ocean I packed up my truck and everything I owned
I said my goodbye's and threw away my 'phone
I didn't know where I was goin', so I just drove
South of Miami, down through the Keys
Road finally ended when I hit the sea
Sent a postcard home sayin'
Don't y'all worry about me

I'm just holding back the ocean
Makin' sure the breeze keeps blowin'
Watchin' over the stars at night
'Til the sun shines bright in the morning
I ain't worried about a damn thing
Keep your gold watches and your brass rings
I'm tired of goin' through the motions
I'm just holding back the ocean

String bikinis and long blonde hair
And you can taste the salt in the air
People laughin' and actin' like they don't have a prayer
It's twenty-four seven at my new occupation
Don't even earn a dime but I wouldn't trade it
I'm workin' overtime on this permanent vacation

I'm just holding back the ocean
Makin' sure the breeze keeps blowin'
Watchin' over the stars at night
'Til the sun shines bright in the morning
I ain't worried about a damn thing
Keep your gold watches and your brass rings
I'm tired of goin' through the motions
I'm just holding back the ocean

It's up to you what you do with your life
I'll be spendin' mine
I'm just holding back the ocean
Makin' sure the breeze keeps blowin'
Watchin' over the stars at night
'Til the sun shines bright in the morning
I ain't worried about a damn thing
Keep your gold watches and your brass rings
I'm tired of goin' through the motions
I'm just holding back the ocean
I'm tired of goin' through the motions
I'm just holding back the ocean
