General Information

The 10th track on Evanescence's self-titled album, Evanescence (album).

In an interview with Spin.com[1] Amy announced the name of three new songs to be included in Evanescence's new record, among these was "Oceans":

Vin1.jpg [Oceans] starts with a big, low synth and a vocal, then the band kicks in. It's big and lush. We've been having a lot of fun playing that one especially.

I get inspired by nature, the ocean's been a theme. Brokenness has become a little bit of theme, without necessarily offering a solution.

Evanescence premiered Oceans on the 17 August 2011 during Evanescence's show in Nashville. [2]

Lyrics

Don’t wanna be the one to walk away
But I can’t bear the thought of one more day.
I think I finally understand what it means to be lost.

Can’t find the road to lead us out of this,
A million miles from where we burned the bridge
Can’t keep pretending everything’s gonna be alright.

With the whole world falling down on me.

Cross the oceans in my mind,
Find the strength to say goodbye.
In the end you never can wash the blood from your hands.

Falling so far from where we were before
You’ll never find what you’ve been searching for
Something to fill the void and make up for all of those missing pieces of you.

Like I could only dream to do.

Cross the oceans in my mind,
Find the strength to say goodbye.
Everything that we believed in was a lie.
Cross the oceans in your mind,
Find a way to draw a line.
In the end you never can wash the blood from your hands.

And we never learn,
So we fall down again
Heaven help me find a way to dream within this nightmare.

Cross the oceans in my mind,
Find the strength to say goodbye.
Everything that we believed in was a lie.
Cross the oceans in your mind
Find a way to draw a line.
In the end you never can wash the blood from your hands.
