Switchfoot - Saltwater Heart Lyrics



Talking with myself in a land-locked parking lot
cough drop dripping from my mouth like a long shot
My writer’s blocking oh oh oh
Sick of all the small talk, dripping non-stop
from the open-mouth graves of the faux hawk cinder block malls
my blood clot pen oh oh oh

Oh maybe I could break clean
Yea, maybe I could break clean

We’re on your shore again
I can feel the ocean
I can feel your open arms
That pure emotion
I’m finally free again
By my own explosion
We’re on your shore again
I can feel the ocean

Saltwater running through my veins like a blind spot
Like I got caught, saltwater like a teardrop
With a saltwater heart oh oh oh
Now it’s an abstract thought but I’ve been thinking non-stop
'bout the fact that my body’s made most out of raindrops
With a saltwater heart oh oh oh

Oh maybe I could wash clean
Yea maybe I could believe

We’re on your shore again
I can feel the ocean
I can feel your open arms
That pure emotion
I’m finally free again
By my own explosion
We’re on your shore again
I can feel the ocean

Maybe I could wash clean
Yea maybe I could wash clean
all my land-locked dreams
And maybe I could believe

We’re on your shore again
I can feel the ocean
I can feel your open arms
That pure emotion
I’m finally free again
Like my own explosion
We’re on your shore again
I can feel the ocean

I can feel the ocean

    Talking to myself in a land locked parking lot
    Cough drop dripping from my mouth like a long shot
    My writers block ink, oh
    Sick of all the small talk dripping non-stop
    From the open mouth graves of the faux-hawk cinderblock malls
    My blood clot pen, oh
    Maybe I could break clean
    Maybe I could break clean

    When I’m on your shore again
    I can feel the ocean
    I can feel your open arms
    Like pure emotion
    I'm finally free again
    Like my own explosion
    When I’m on your shore again
    I can feel the ocean

    Saltwater running through my veins like a blind spot,
    Like I got caught, saltwater like a tear drop
    With a saltwater heart, oh

    It’s an abstract thought but I’ve been thinking non-stop
    About the fact that my body’s made most out of rain drops
    With a saltwater heart, oh
    Maybe I could wash clean
    Maybe I could believe
    When I’m on your shore again
    I can feel the ocean
    I can feel your open arms
    Like pure emotion
    I'm finally free again
    Like my own explosion
    When I’m on your shore again
    I can feel the ocean
    Oh
    Maybe I could wash clean
    Maybe I could wash clean
    All my land locked dreams
    Maybe I could believe.

    Who ever purposely chose the dislike icon can stick up the yingyang and maybe good vibes come out when you get that silent call.

  15. Abby Cooper

    Why is there 43 dislikes???

  16. Ryan H

    kylo doesn't want to fight at all just becareful

  17. 信Shinko

    Switchfoot has the best music, they have been my favorite band since I was 12 and their music helped me so much when I was struggling with really bad depression (if Switchfoot is reading this all I can do is thank you so much, I'm so glad God led me to you guys)

  53. Mike Rentschler

    Anyone else think that the music video for Love Alone is Worth the Fight would have been more appropriate as the music video for this song instead? I can't be the only one haha.

  54. Mariah Cox

    Thank you so much switch foot! I started crying when I heard this song because I was so happy! I was slipping away in faith and this is a way to stay attached and faithful. This song makes me so happy!

  61. NINJABAT53

    This is my favorite song

  62. Jacob Rhoda

    The "3" dislikes have like no good taste for music!!!!:(

  65. Max Erwin

    This album makes me wanna go to beach and just have a great day because I've been really pissy lately because of stupid things at school that are first world problems so thankyou so much for making me realize this and also I've been listening to switchfoot since before I could walk

  66. Deadweight

    The percussion on this song is absolutely amazing.

  67. Johan Obando

    Come to Costa Rica Again Please, ahere we have ocean!! hahaha

  68. Jemma v

    me encanta :D

  69. chasingtherisingsun

    This song is incredible. And the ending: it sounds exactly like crashing waves onto a shore, and then at the very end after the voices end, the sound of the water (surf?) rushing back into the ocean after the wave has broken… I am just amazed at how you made instruments create that sound. Wow.

    ashawn203

    Probably they just took a recording of the actual ocean but yeah. 

  70. Walker E

    What happened to the song with the ukulele from the fading west trailer?  

    Walker E

    that would be awesome. thanks!

  71. Pepci26

    I enjoy this song very much. I love the builds and the falls. I'm not a fan of roller-coasters, but this is a song like a roller coaster ride that I would ride over and over again.

  72. Sharon Ramdass

    I love you switchfoot

  73. Jeison Rodriguez

    good good good!
