As seen reclining on an ocean swell
As the waves do lather up to lay her down
'til she's fast.
I guess I'm something of a ne'er-do-well
Who fell asleep at the pealing of the steeple bell
I'm on track and keeping
If I could only get you oceanside
To lay your muscles wide
It'd be heavenly
If I could only coax you overboard
To leave these lolling shores
To get you oceanside.

For the last two days I have been listening to the Decemberists song "Oceanside" again and again and again. It's an early song, from their first disk, 5 Songs. I've heard it many times before and it never did much for me before. But for some reason, it struck me the other day. Now I just want to hear it again and again... and again.
