Song Description

A woman, who is saying goodbye to her man who ships off in the military, is despite her love and enjoyment of him, sad and hurt by his being gone.

Story Behind the Song

A combination of my own experience of saying goodbye to someone who was gone a lot for work, and my grandparents' relationship when my grandfather was in the U.S. Navy, but my grandmother and he were very much in love.

Lyrics

Roses On The Ocean
(c) 2007 Sarah Fridrich, ASCAP

from the starboard of the ships
the men waved goodbye
i never understood
but he had his orders

with red hot lips
of desperate romancing
with girls at their hips
the boys will be dancing
we're gonna cilng to their shoulders
we're gonna cry 'til dawn
this night could be endless
if it weren't for the rising sun

my man put
roses on the ocean
and then he just packed up to leave
i've cried for the last time
i'm gonna put my heart to sleep

the mothers of the land
gave me women's liberation
took the brooms for our hands
and gave us driving ambition
but as hard as they worked
they must have left something out
cause this love sick heart
i can't do nothin' about

my man put
roses on the ocean
and then he just packed up to leave
i've cried for the last time
i'm gonna put my heart to sleep

in the hours that we meet
we try to talk about love
make expressions complete
but there's never words enough
now i'm sittin' at the table
with my hands to my face
he's at the door
and i've got nothin' to say

my man put
roses on the ocean
and then he just packed up to leave
i've cried for the last time
gonna put my heart to sleep
