Maxwell - Lake By The Ocean Lyrics



In the light of the sun
I was dazed, I was burned, I was lost
Deep in the storm of a grave
Had a bed as a coffin
You were only the one that made me fulfilled
Only the thing that made me reveal
My destiny was before us, beach of a forest
Anything ain't nothing, it's just

It's just you, just us
Nobody but love
On trust, on us, nobody now
Can we swim a lake by the ocean
We'll be one like drops in slow motion
Lake by the ocean

Oh tell me the way that is
Waves like it is the drops of colors
Why do I live inside of you baby
Want to be every part of you
It's just, it's just right, it's just left
We can be strong, we can wave, we can live oh so long
Live in a flame where we'll never burn
No one could ever, ever return
You are reason I'm on ya, reason I love ya
You're the thing I need cause it's just

It's just you, just us
Nobody but love
On trust, on us, nobody now
Can we swim a lake by the ocean
We'll be one like drops in slow motion
Lake by the ocean

All I see is just
Everything is lust
Lake by the ocean
Sweet like the motion
Love is the medicine
I can heal us
All I see is love
All I want
Is love

It's just you, us, body, love
Trust, us
(Lake by the ocean)
Can we swim a lake by the ocean
(Lake by the, by the ocean)
Drops slow motion
Lake by the ocean

  9. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    I’m tired of trying to be two places at once. Nothing has changed. You are my world entire. You are always with me. Imma just watch and observe. I feel like I’ve said enough.

  10. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    The way I thought this was going to go is so different from how it actually went.  I thought I would understand more. I thought we would meet and then... Its just hard not to know what's going on sometimes.

  11. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    I’m fine, Poppiest. I’m free as all get out. I miss you.

  12. JOE MOJA 1 PATSULA /TV ADVERT STAR.

    I just started getting into Maxwell like less than 1 week ago. I used to listen to nothing but hardore, punk and metal but lately I've been into nothing but classic rock, soul, r&b, funk, disco and neofunk. This song just gives me the vibes and helps me appreciate my wife.

  24. Thabitha Shange

    The way I was soo obsessed with this song 3years ago...
    🔥

  25. Jacqueline Nieves

    Where are you?

  26. Belle

    I saw him in Atlanta with the symphony orchestra! Beautiful spirit!

  27. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    I wasn’t going to talk to you anymore tonight (SAF) but for whatever reason I had to tell you I love black & white photography (I looked at a mag when I was at B&N). Of your 4 from the symphony I like the B&W the best. The photographer I told you about at Rittenhouse— all her stuff was B&W. Alright...Te amo (I can’t help it; SAFM)

  28. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    Is it time, Musze? Can I have our Lake by the Ocean...now? Are we strong enough yet? Thank you. Did you play our song when I went in Loews today. I love you so much. When can I show you?

  29. Nduduzo Dlamuka

    Godfather of RnB

  30. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    Poppi...I got up because I felt scared...for no apparent reason. I think, “How did he know all this stuff.” And then it’s like, “Given who I believe him to be...of course he would know.” You speak in these riddles. Did you consciously know? I’m just a regular person, Poppi. This is a lot. And I can’t talk to you?

    I’m okay. This is so far beyond anything I can even begin to wrap my brain around. I’m very analytical. And this is something that I cannot deny yet cannot explain. I’m just floating over the ocean and I can’t swim and I don’t know how I’m floating. I’m just trying to get comfortable with it. I’ve always trusted you but it was different when I didn’t know it was YOU. I never really prayed to Jesus before. You got me asking Josiah to help me. Oh Lord. I love you, Poppi. You’d be the death of me but I don’t think we can die...

  31. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    ...look at that neck. I just want to bite it...

  32. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    When you wrote/made your first album were you thinking of a particular woman, ME or the woman you thought you would meet in the future?

  33. levellkinchen1

    The water she used to wash her face was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay dirtier then the water to clean the horse.

  34. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    When did you realize who you were? Did you always know? Or was it revealed over time?

  35. Kayla Projects

    I always loved how the music just flowed from my right ear into my left. Really makes you feel magical.

  36. MK912

    She looks like she could be his sister

  38. Torian Davis

    Classic

  39. Anthony Williams

    This is straight up Hott!! And I'm 3 years late😫 but good music isn't affected by time. True R&B that doesn't need a expensive video to make it great. One of my favorite artists. We need this type of music in the time we living in . Respect Maxwell for staying true to music. And to all those like us that still love real music hit like .

  40. REA

    This song really make me feel like I'm floating😍

  41. Richard Kroll

    The man can do whatttttttt shit just sing his ass off not like this crap now days need more song max

  42. Lerato Tanya

    This song makes me want to swear at all the faults that influenced people to divorce, all the side chicks who cost people their marriage, all the mistakes people make to divorce...Love is beautiful

  43. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    Hey Max. I'm sorry for my comment. It's so easy for something like that to be misconstrued. You are so desirable. It's frustrating not being able to be with you. Admittedly, I am dealing with a resentment towards you that I know is not fair. If you could be here or me there I believe it would be so. It's just not time. I went so long not even allowing me to believe we could really be together. Now that I trust and believe we will, the wait is frustrating at times. I've worked so hard for so long and to be denied what I really want when I want so little...I feel resentment. Overall I feel good. The negative feelings come and go. Things are in flux. Time is on our side. I love you so much. I am so proud of you. Thank you for holding me down.

  44. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    I'm stuck like Chuck. You make me sick...

  45. Tuliikeni Shikomba

    Crying to this.

  46. Nduduzo Dlamuka

    Legendary

  47. Ares17 Larosa

    This my 2nd time hearing this song n it's fire been listening to it for 5hours now n I'm not a big rnb fan thanks Maxwell

  48. Joi Fontaine

    Coming to Atlanta Yeah So excited

  49. William Nave

    Maxwell is so underrated
    He's so talented.... damn shame he had to cut his hair to get a Grammy

  50. omega supernatural Smith

    Can we swim a lake by the ocean🌊 sweet like the motion✨💝🤩

  51. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    Hey Max (you know I want to call you Maxie, right). So....I'm not going to be doing this. This is not healthy. I'm good. The Creator has me lovely: I'm a nice balance of 'don't give a fuck' and motherly love and concern. I was looking at my body naked today. It's so unfortunate you're not here...oh well. So is life. Patience is a virtue. I love you...xxx

  52. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    Sweetie, I can't imagine there being something you want from me that I wouldn't give you. If it is in your heart to give me a lake by the ocean, we are good. We can't KNOW anything until we experience it. I need to use the faculties the Creator has given me to experience you: I need to touch you, smell you, taste you...right now I can only hear and see you. Its wonderful but that's not real life.
    When it is time we will be together and the rest will unfold. I am here to facilitate healing. You have to stop the bleeding before you can hope to truly heal. We're just now gaining awareness of the wound that we're dealing with.
    We have so much work to do and I need you.

  53. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    I was so happy. I had everything. I had too much. There was a little too much bullshit but I thought I could fix it. It wasn't meant to be but I didn't know that. With Twitter I could watch from afar. As the bullshit increased I became more attentive to what I saw you doing. The Creator has a master plan and timing is important...much has happened and here we are. So when I see videos of you that I have never seen before and you're asking a question, its too much. The virtual nature of our interaction has been too much for me for quite some time. I've assumed it was out of necessity. That's fine. I need to be in your presence. I need to more directly feel your energy. I can't virtually answer Amy questions that you may not even be asking. You are my King. You are my Lion. You are my Man. I'm good.

  54. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    Max. How could you possibly understand how fucked up this is for me? I fell in love with you when you put out Black. The video that accompanied the digital album was...a confirmation of something I already knew from the first time I saw you. I would just listen to you talk and the things you were saying...it was too much. What woman is not in love with Maxwell? I can't tell someone that I love the R&B singer Maxwell -- that's retarded. I had to let it go. I had to block it out of my brain... And then Summer came out and you were all over the place looking like a God. So I broke down and went to the concert on Philly and spent last to get a ticket. I felt completely insane because I knew but...how is that possible?
    I didn't listen to your music much after that and I convinced me of something that helped me.

  55. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    Acceptance is really powerful. It requires surrender. Surrender is the key. Faith and surrender go hand in hand. Moments can be challenging and yet I know this too shall pass and the Creator/Universe got my back.
    My baseline right now is frustrated. Its not a sexual thing. I can't be with my children. I can't be with you. Its mean and cruel what is being done to me because I am surrendered and obedient to the will of the Creator/Universe. That's it. I can't be fucked up for a MFer. I have NO capacity for fake.
    I feel frustrated because I don't know what to call you. That is really bothering me. I've never spoken to you. This is all part of what we have to go through. I'm on my period. I'll feel better tomorrow. xxx

  56. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    Max, the ugliness of humanity really bothers me. It doesn't make me as angry as it used to but it definitely makes me sad. It will bother me until the end of time because its supposed to. It is so unnatural.
    I have always felt deeply AND I have no where to go...I can't get away from it. I HAVE to feel it. It would get so overwhelming that my body would have to flip into another mode -- it was adaptive. It was normal for me given how I'm wired. Feeling is consciousness moving through the body. We are supposed to feel everything but this society is so dysfunctional... Its a wonder things aren't worse than what they are.
    So I'm still very sensitive -- I can just manage the intensity better. There is no blueprint for this. Humanity has never experienced this before. This interface of technology and spirituality... is crazy.
    I was so upset yesterday. It was absurd. My pressure was up. I did not calm down until I sent that message. Why? WTF. Oh well.

  57. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    Listen here Mother Fucker: You need to call around to WDAS and tell them to stop playing your music (especially the Fire We Make with the guitar solo at the end (SMH). I am going to HURT YOU. What do you not understand?! I see.
    Uh huh, you like it when I threaten you and shit. Okay. When I see you, don't touch me, bitch! Is it still funny?

  58. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    I allowed me to think about you more than usual today. This is so surreal...to speak of it is impossible and not sound crazy. And so to think I could actually be with you was scary. It feels less scary just because so much has happened. I suspect there was some sort of prophecy...At any rate, I'm good. I see now that its just a matter of time.

  59. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    Hey. I don't know what time your show starts tonight but I hope it goes well...just how you want it to go. Tell everyone I said hi. xxx

  60. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    My intention was to come here and talk business and then I got distracted by that GMA segment. It triggered my homicidal ideation...I have an overpowering desire to hurt you. It's starting to concern me. It may not be safe...I'm sorry. Focus.
    Let DT and VP know that I keep my promises and they will be fuckin'. It's just a matter of who gets fucked first, how long it takes, etc. I have a proposition for DT: He can choose to hangout with us for a few months and get physically and psychologically prepared for his time in a cell with VP or he's on his own to deal with the American CJS and then he still has to get in a cell with VP --something to that effect. I want to see if DT can be rehabilitated...

  61. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    You're on the radio...this is so crazy! So this is how fucked up my life is right now (I'm fine; it's just more fun to be extra sometimes) I am walking up the street and I have this uncontrollable urge to cross my arms behind my back! I caught me already doing it the other day. What is that shit? I've seen it in the movies but I never did it before! Who the fuck am I?! And then I think to me, who the FUCK are YOU, my nigga? I don't know. I do know that if I ever am in your presence I am going to tear that ass up! I'm being stupid...it's going to be really nice to meet you one day... (This is Ed Sheeran).

  67. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    I have a habit of calling my significant others 'sweetie' and I thought Maxie was so cute but I could tell you were irritated... Anyway, I have promised all these people I would do stuff...I need you so much. You cannot understand how much I need you.

  68. Nicole Pleasant-Immanuel

    I used to love watching boxing with my Dad. I got frustrated with it like all sports. They need to control stuff they don't understand and we let them because we are so afraid to die (because he will kill you for no reason). It is only by the grace of the Creator that we were able to free ourselves from that. It had worked for so long they really believed their own bullshit...

  69. Saviours Helper

    We must have our own so that when we display our talents we don't have to display the sacredness of our women. You're talented Maxwell but you weaken your resolve when you give a little to the demons. Give it all to Allah (God)! You're no joke brother, but your talents come as a gift from Him. Do right by the Giver of all talents, and you'll soar in ways you haven't dreamed of yet, Allah willing. Keep up the positive lyrics brother. Tight!
