The Ocean Lyrics

I climbed up a mountain, and looked off the edge
At all of the lives that I never have led
There's one where I stayed with you, across the sea

Not the most poetic way of saying what this song is saying but from a personal viewpoint after so many years of carrying questions on “what if I had only done more to keep what I lost”; would I still have it? 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".
    Powerful song.
