You're the ocean - Teitur

Recommended Posts

We went out for lunch today and in the background the TV was playing a really nice song. It was a band of guys, think there were 4 people. The lead singer was also the lead guitarist.

They sounded alot like perhaps Crowded House, or at least the vocalist sounded like Sting.

The music video was them performing with the sea, waves crashing, the skies opening up and raining, and the vocals were related ie. "The sea", "stars", "rain", "the sky" were in the lyrics.

I believe they were singing about a woman, maybe? It was hard to really make anything out as the pub was rather noisy. I imagine they are quite a newish band, I've not seen them before (I don't think!)

It's a nice pop-rock type song, and I'd really like to find out who/what it is :)

I have trie googling the lyrics I remember, but there are a number of matches from Brand New to U2.

:help:

I never saw the video to this song, and it's not newer, but could it be "Walk on the Ocean" by Toad the Wet Sprocket?

The last video I can remember seeing with the band playing at the beach was by Rooney. I can't even remember the name of the song, though.....

I bet it's the one Jenny mentioned above, the Toad The Wet Sprocket song. I believe the video was similar to your description. There's a prominent accordion, if that helps.

We spotted the ocean at the head of the trail

Where are we going, so far away

And somebody told me that this is the place

Where everything's better, everything's safe

Walk on the ocean

Step on the stones

Flesh becomes water

Wood becomes bone

And half and hour later we packed up our things

We said we'd send letters and all those little things

And they knew we were lying but they smiled just the same

It seemed they'd already forgotten we'd came

Now we're back at the homestead

Where the air makes you choke

And people don't know you

And trust is a joke

We don't even have pictures

Just memories to hold

That grow sweeter each season

As we slowly grow old

Honest to God, I don't know where I got that phrase from, but I say it all the time. It does sound like it could be from an incredibly cheesy Anthony Michael Hall 80s movie, so sure, we'll go with the buttered muffin Chet.

And of course I was speaking to you, das. You were the one who forced me to read the lyrics to the song. Sheesh.

Razorlight - To The Sea

Or maybe this one?

Teitur - You're The Ocean

There's too much sky, not enough blue

There's too many questions to why I love you

There's too many clouds, not enough sun

The rain must fall on everyone

I'm fire-you're the ocean

I'm energy-you're the rhythm

Love is somewhere in between

What you believe and what you dream

I'm just trying to make you mine

You're the ocean

There's too much doubt and not enough dare

There's too much decision everywhere

There's too much decision everywhere

There's too much talk and not enough time

Let's close our eyes and not our minds

I'm fire-you're the ocean

I'm energy-you're the rhythm

Love is somewhere in between

What you believe and what you dream

I'm just trying to make you mine

You look for leads, I follow clues

You love to win, I dare to lose

Mostly you're a mind game in my head

You are earth, I am water

I can give you what you're after

You can be the word:I can be the rhyme:

There's really nothing you can do

You're going where I'm going too

Stay beside me, stay beside me

I want you

I'm fire-you're the ocean

I'm energy-you're the rhythm

Love is somewhere in between

What you believe and what you dream

I'm just trying to make you mine

You're the ocean

Hiya!

Ok, first...

to Tenacious_Peaches..the whole "Thanks a pantload, chet" thing was said in the movie Wayne's World. Perhaps that's where you got it. :)

And Earth-Angel... I doubt this is it...but my suggestion for the song you're looking for would be "Truly,Madly,Deeply" by Savage Garden.

Here's a link for you to listen to it, just in case. Get to it quick though, it's only good for seven days. ;)
