I was biting the time zone,

F#m G F#m G

And we embellish the banks of our bloodstreams,

F#m G A

And threw caution to the colourful

G F#m G

And then we fell asleep in the car,

F#m G F#m G

Until the bumps woke me up in your grip

F#m G A

And the tide took me to your mouth,

G F#m G

And then swept me back down to your palms

F#m G A

It’s them that put me inside the reminder

G F#m

That yours is the only ocean,

A F#m

(Yours Is the only ocean)

A F#m

That I wanna swing from,

A F#m

Yours is the only ocean,

A

That I wanna hang on

F#m G F#m G

G F#m G

I’ve got this ego mechanic,

F#m G F#m G

She’s always trying to give me vitamins

F#m G A

Oh she’d be frightened of your reflection,

G F#m G

I preferred her as a cartoon

F#m G F#m G

If I could be someone else for a week,

F#m G A

I’d spend it chasing after you,

G F#m G

Cos she’s not shattering my attitude,

F#m G A

No matter how she folds the potion

G F#m

Yours is the only ocean,

A F#m

(Yours Is the only ocean)

A F#m

That I wanna swing from,

A F#m

Yours is the only ocean,

A F#m

That I want to hang on-…-to

A F#m A F#m

A F#m

A F#m

(I’m swinging on)

A F#m A F#m A F#m A

F#m A F#m A

Yours is the only ocean,

F#m A F#m A

Yours is the only ocean,

F#m A F#m A

Yours is the only ocean,

F#m A F#m A

Yours is the only ocean

Potion approaching, shield your eyes,

F#m E F#m E

Potion approaching, visualize,

F#m E F#m E

Holding a token, swollen in size,

F#m E F#m

Potion approaching, shield your eyes

Oh but if we’re gonna escape though,

F#m G F#m G

We really ought to think it through,

F#m G A G F#m

Would you like me to build you a go kart?
