Phantogram - You Are The Ocean Lyrics




This song is about you
Cause I can't live without you
when a song is about you
then you know you've got problems
that you can choose

There's a hole in my conscience
There's a hole in my country
like a nose that keeps running
like a hose that won't stop flowing
and I know that it's coming
It's coming
It's coming
It's coming soon

Here's why
Cause you are the ocean
And I'm good at drowning

(you should be looking out)

The morning will follow
and I wont remember

(you should be looking out)

It feels like I've been here
I've been here forever

(you should be looking out)

you should be looking out

In the fall I get lonely
In the winter I'm still lonely
Come the knives of the springtime
In the summer I go crazy

Cause you are the ocean
And I'm good at drowning

(you should be looking out)

The morning will follow
and I wont remember

(you should be looking out)

It feels like I've been here
I've been here forever

(you should be looking out)

you should be looking out

  2. bakula1976

  3. jibaro soy

    i will love this band for the rest of my life.

  4. Norma Jean

  5. sick6illy.

    Daytona Beach, August of 2018
    she, she was my ocean.

  6. Peggy Kaufman

    Love this song catchy tune

  7. derkgts10

    As an alcoholic, this song really touches on so many levels.

  8. Erandi Méndez

    every year since 2012 I return to this song, to put it once and still feel like the first time.

  9. unisexbanana

    I feel the need to share this. My boyfriend commited suicide 2 years ago and I am still completley broken. This was one of our songs. I live far away from the ocean but oftentimes when I dream of him he is the ocean, and the waves overtake me and I'm drowned what I feel is drowned in my grief. Sometimes the tide is high and sometimes it is low. This may not be what they wrote it for but this is how it corresponds to my life. He was no longer a human spirit but the spirit of the ocean

    Samantha Williamson

    A beautiful tribute to your loving departed. ❤ I have intrusive suicidal thoughts. I think about it, usually at least once a day. At first I was terrified. I have had to normalize it to make it ok. Tell myself it's ok to think about it. I have been like this for around 5years. Nothing any doctor can do. They can't control my thoughts. You can't possibly understand unless you experience it. It's awful. It's the last thing you want but can't help going there. The only thing I can do is let it overwhelm me. Cry. Don't hold it back no matter how painful. Why can't I have intrusive thoughts about sex instead of death! I don't understand it so it's not easy for anyone else. All you can do is try to channel it to something else. Distract till death.

  10. vania koyoc

    Alv! I lost all my fucking music with my previous iphone and im still recollecting it. I could not be more happy to have found this jewel again! I wanns cry with emotion while dancin to this. This is why i hardly change music app, youtube always finds me the best ... oh and looove for phantogram, son unos chingones lml

  11. Krystal Hasiak

    I had this in my Watch Later playlist as 3rd oldest addition. I have no clue why but I finally got around to listening. It's good. Anyone around to tell me if this is from a movie or something?

  16. Mr_Gein97

    "In investigations after, it was determined that each of the victims were mentally ill. What do you suppose they saw in the deep ocean through that transparent skin?"

  17. derkgts10

    Possibly the best song ever written in modern times.

    [Verse 1]
    This song is about you
    Cause I can't live without you
    When a song is about you
    Then you know you've got problems
    That you can choose

    [Verse 2]
    There's a hole in my conscience
    There's a hole in my country
    Like a nose that keeps runnin'
    Like a hose that won't stop flowin'
    And I know that it's comin'
    It's coming
    It's coming
    It's coming soon

    Here's why

    [Chorus]
    Cause you are the ocean
    And I'm good at drownin'
    You should be lookin' out
    The mornin' will follow
    And I won't remember
    You should be lookin' out
    It feels like I've been here
    I've been here forever
    You should be lookin' out
    You should be lookin' out


    [Verse 3]
    In the fall I get lonely
    In the winter I'm still lonely
    Come the knives of the springtime
    In the summer I go crazy

    [Chorus]
    Cause you are the ocean
    And I'm good at drownin'
    You should be lookin' out
    The mornin' will follow
    And I won't remember
    You should be lookin' out
    It feels like I've been here
    I've been here forever
    You should be lookin' out
    You should be lookin' out

  29. Summer Time!

    Pure eargasm. Best song on this album and I'm still listening in 2017

  30. MkLeftAScar

    fuck this song

  31. LDenise Loveflower

    The best

  32. Alfredo Anaya

    anybody else got this on replay? its not enough i need more!! reminds me of looking at the pine tress after a light frost in the morning with a beautiful sunrise, nostalgia feel

  33. Live Not Die

    I first heard this song when I met the first person I ever truly loved. I heard it in Dec. 2014. I met her in Aug. but she was separated from her husband. We fell off and met up in December. By February the next year she left. We haven't spoken since but I had never felt about anyone like I felt about her...Simone

  34. bad avocado

    I farted on my husbands dick lol

  35. Pᴀʀᴀsᴇʟᴇɴᴇ Tᴀᴏ

    This is one of my favorite phantogram songs bc it reminds me of a dream I had when I was falling in love for the first time.

    I had a dream I was floating in a warm, comfy. the water was fresh, clean, turquoise and clear... it dawned on me I was floating in an ocean of her love/emotions.

  36. Daniela Borella

    Love love love!!!!!

  37. zoji rushi

    Expansive. #+++

  38. GhengisJohn

    Probably my favorite song where Josh sings as opposed to Sara. It's awesome that they can both sing though, gives them a wide range.

  39. Pᴀʀᴀsᴇʟᴇɴᴇ Tᴀᴏ

    This song reminds me of a dream I had. After sleeping with a girl a few times one night I had this dream.
    Normally, the water—the deep, dark, and cold ocean— holds negative feelings of anxiety, dread and death for me in dream land. This night when I was sleeping next to her, the water was different. The water was light, warm and inviting. I floated on it happily. While dreaming, I realized she was the ocean; I loved the ocean and she loved me back.
    That was one of the best dreams I've ever had.

    Dave Ritchie

    Pᴀʀᴀsᴇʟᴇɴᴇ Tᴀᴏ Thats incredible. Thanks for sharing inner thoughts😉

    I like the song but also the bass reminds me of Joy Division - Transmission

    Samantha Williamson

    Yeah it does. I can hear it. I thought it reminded me of summat. You could mix that with JD. that would sound really good. Every song reminds me of another.

  68. Molly Mae

    This song was playing when me and my boyfriend first had sex <3 Love this song

    Ayelis

    @Molly; You should think of whatever you want. He doesn't own Phantogram. They're awesome on their own. You'd have found it anyway. Haven't you heard them on the radio or movies since then? Met someone else who has heard of them? If not, then go watch... uhh... Pitch Perfect. Or the Edge of Seventeen. Or Elementary. Or play GTA5.

    Sienna L

    That's disgusting.

    Moses Ong

    Just a bit, they got this post rock feel to me

    Sam Holloway

    +Moses Ong They're a bit naughty on that front, their song When I'm Small allegedly stole its beat from a Geoff Barrow track, and he's not happy about it.

  83. Ellange Piano

  87. Musical_Nomad

    I think you should get off your computer, find a wall, take your head and bash it against that wall until you loose all of those brain cells that helped you come up with this comment. Obviously you already have some sort of brain damage anyway, so it shouldn't be too harmful to you at least =)
