Dinosaur Jr. - Ocean In The Way Lyrics

Said there's an ocean and I'm in your way
I'd like to go soon we'll shine through your lake [?]
I need to feel it, you don't need a thing
Got tons to feel, what else should I bring
Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma

Said there's a panic that I can't describe
I need that something I see in your eye
Just wanna lay down when I cannot deal
Pick me back up, give me something to feel
Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma

I've been out lookin' for somewhere to hide
There's been a mix up somewhere deep inside
I feel the ocean inside of your heart
Just takes a doubt to come smash it apart

Come on down, got some work to do while I'm around
Come on down, got some work to do while I'm around
Come on down, come on down

Said there's an ocean inside of my mind
It's all so murky, the truth's hard to find
When the time gets here, you'll vouch you in
It'd be a shame to start over again
Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma
Ma ma ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma ma, ma ma ma

Dinosaur Jr. Ocean In The Way Comments
  1. Patrick McManus

    This and “Get Me” are my jams!

  2. John Random

    This is the first song that got me into loving this band for the rest of my days

  3. Charlie Watt

    radiohead the bends ?

    Pertti Simpson

    Karma police = Sexy sadie (The Beatles)
    Creep = The air that I breathe (The Hollies)

  4. nos somos Flor de carolina


  5. Brendan McDonald

    awesome band and album. my guitarist turned me onto these guys. suggested we cover this song, and now I listen to these guys non stop. fucking awesome

  6. mario4prez

    reminds me of neil youngs powderfinger

  7. Andrew Holder

    Def one of my fav songs by them!

  8. F. Hawk

    Awesome album cover isn't it. So happy to see this band having waited over a decade to catch them.

    Try an album called Medicate the Howls by Lucid Rivers.

  9. Nicky GMP_3

    This is the type of song where not only the lyrics speak to you

  10. Black Vinyl BR

    Love this song and this album and this Rockband!

  11. GetUAClue

    I'm not worried about the amount of views because Justin Bieber's "Baby" has over a billion views which is indicative of how diluted music has become and you have to search deep to find music with profound substance.

  12. Douglas Dexter

    Album genial !!!!

  13. Eric Saunders

    Love this song and the album cover

  14. backyardbeachbum

    if i lived in a country where everyone loved dinosaur jr i think that would be the best country on earth


    I wish I could give you 1 million thumbs up. Truer words have never been said. I wish I could meet even a couple of people with this appreciation, other than the 2 friends from college (U of Iowa) who liked them too, who I lost contact with. Probably should get on Facebook

  15. FarmerDoom

    As should everyone.

  16. It Must Be RoofCake
