A ring in the ocean

 Play

There’s a ring in the ocean
It lies beneath the salty sand that used to be on someone’s hand
The light in the harbor
Shines upon what used to be drifting on the open sea
And nobody knows how it got there does anybody really care

Oh nothing is as lonesome as a ring in the ocean where the silence is its only kind of sound
Did it just slip off a finger was another promise broken oh tonight it’s only hoping to be found

There’s a ring in the ocean
A fourteen carat mystery as tarnished as its history
There’s a heart and forever
Once so perfectly engraved now you can hardly see what it means
No one can hear its gold prayer is anybody looking for it way up there

Oh there’s nothing quite as lonesome as a ring in the ocean where the silence is its only kind of sound
Did it just slip on a finger was another promise broken oh tonight it’s only hoping to be found

Oh and once in awhile when the waters all collide
And the moon moves the tide just right it starts to come alive
For a moment umm for a moment

Oh nothing is as lonesome as a ring in the ocean where the silence is its only kind of sound
Did it just slip on a finger was another promise broken oh tonight it’s only hoping to be found

There’s a ring in the ocean
It sits upon the salty sand it used to be on someone’s hand
