Ocean Eyes Lyrics

Play "Ocean Eyes"
on Amazon Music

I've been watching you
For some time
Can't stop staring
At those oceans eyes
Burning cities
And napalm skies
Fifteen flares inside those ocean eyes
Your ocean eyes
No fair
You really know how to make me cry
When you gimme those ocean...

    From my perspective, this song is about someone falling for a guy. I don't really know if I have a strong interpretation of this, but she likes him because of his "sharpness" and how he can differentiate from others, like how he has a "diamond mind" and "ocean eyes". Which set him apart from others, even if she has no chance with him.

    I read the lyrics from Another possible perspective: the writer has admired an older (possibly married) woman, but now finds him/herself falling hard for her. She’s smart and attractive, but may have experienced something devastating that has left her sad and lonely. The writer struggles with the feelings they are experiencing.

    Ocean Eyes by Billie Eilish, it's real meaning is available at wikipedia website. The latest comment by a young girl, sort of explained the lyrics like it was between a guy and a girl.

    My interpretation is that a girl likes someone, and the eyes of that person basically traps them into liking them. It isn't exactly the color of the ocean eyes, but the movement of them. She could see right through the eyes, and she is obsessed with them. She becomes attached to the ocean eyes.

    -A young girl who loves music...

    I think this song is about someone who is fascinated by a sea creature.

    I know this seems far fetched... But Billie is the kind of artist that Rich's far...so what I like to think is this song isn't about a person but a sea creature...she finds it in the ocean eyes the same color she fears it but admires it all the same..although they must have been forced to part in the end..because he left her alone with a diamond mind
