The first interpretation is as dead on as the song is itself. I recently heard a comment from someone who said those you live in the past are dead in the present.

Or would it had made any difference at all. Still I’m forever haunted by a question that can never be answered.

I think it is about a couple of things.
Its about Realizing the mistakes you've made, wether that's with someone or something. The regret of not for-filling the things you might have accomplished. Also, Wondering where you will be, and all of the things you could have done, the person you could have been,(regret). But it all doesn't matter because inevitably," the ocean rolls us away".
