About the song
I was sitting on a pier in Key Largo with my guitar...and the noonday sun was causing the slightly rippling water to glitter. As I meditatively looked into the water, I was transfixed. It was like looking into thousands of eyes...hence, Eyes of the Ocean.
I see the eyes of the ocean looking back at me
Shimmering as the endless sky rolls on, lighting the way to the farthest shore I can see
Makin’ the day much brighter, watchin’ over me

Clouds pass and they don’t stop to say, pretty pictures they just float on their way
But the sea reaches out to me, whispers my name sweet and low
Makin’ the way much brighter, takin’ me where I should go

Windswept I become, flying like a wave across the sea
Then she and I are one, laughing for the day that’s yet to be
Soaring toward the sun, seeing all I’m meant to be

I feel the eyes of the ocean reaching out for me
She cradles me in her peaceful arms and takes me to places I’d never see
Makin’ the day much brighter, watchin’ over me
