Ships on the Ocean Floor: A mix about growing up and missing the sea (or a coastal road trip mix)

Notes: I live in a sadly landlocked state. Even before I saw the ocean for the first time, I had this immense longing for it. When I first saw that wide open blue, I knew I was in love. Every year about this time (spring to summer), I get really homesick for the sea. I go into these really melancholy moods where all I can think about is how I want to see the sea. This mix is more or less a love note from me to the sea.

The songs on this mix aren’t all necessarily about the ocean. The ones that aren’t are just songs that make me think of the sea because of the feel: the lyrics, the music, the beats, etc. It’s a lot of acoustic/indie/melancholy music.

This is the first time I’ve used Mediafire. Let me know if anything doesn’t work. There are two mp4 files. The rest are all mp3s. 22 tracks. Comments are love. <3

A note to my friends: This isn’t necessarily me coming back completely, but it is perhaps the start of me coming back.

1. The Kooks: Seaside

Do you want to go to the seaside?
I'm not trying to say that everybody wants to go
But I fell in love on the seaside
On the seaside
In the seaside

2. Josh Garrels: Sailor’s Waltz


3. The Autumn Film: Ships on the Ocean Floor

I’m taking cues from the ships on the ocean floor.
The sound of waves on the rocks means I’m getting close to the shore
Can you hear me singing in the distance?
This is the sound I’ve always heard in my head.
I got it once and I made it back again.

4. Chase Coy: Take Me Away

Take me away, I need the sand and the waves
The sunset and let's not forget those warm autumn days
I just need to get out of here
And visit the coast just to see her
There's gotta be something else out there for me
I could feel it in my heart the day I started to dream
There's more than this Midwestern town
I can't let this place keep me down

5. Sleeping at Last: Side by Side

The sea unlocks
Like the lid of a music box.
It shivers with foreign sound,
As long as the gears stay wound
The whales will sing their song
All in a glorious effort to be strong.

6. Darryl Blood: Chain Smoking Cathedral

She said that fears are like comets just floating above our eyes

And ignorance is a parachute if you're reading between the lines

I'm a chain smoking cathedral, I'm a stretched out rubber band

And my music is my salvation, this much I understand

7. Jukebox the Ghost: Empire

I've got my dreams and I've got my sleep
And I've a promise to build it's gonna keep these visions of an empire
At peace

'Cause my heart is my keep
And you are threatening me
'Cause my heart is my keep
And you are threatening me

8. The Decemberists: From My Own True Love (Lost at Sea)

Four score years
Living down in this rain swept town
Sea salt tears
Swimming round as the rain comes down

Mr Postman, do you have a letter for me?
Mr Postman, do you have a letter for me?
A letter for me
From my own true love
Lost at sea
Lost at sea

9. Seabear: Sailor’s Blue

The taste on your lips
The lead in your eyelids
The sea under the boat
My hands in your raincoat

When I shoot this rock
But get the sailor's blues in a maze
(Try again)

10. Tom Felton: All I Need

So if I only have one day left in my life
I’d make you my wife.
I’d take your hand
Fly to the warm sand.
That would be grand.

11. Holy Fiction: Exit

I don’t know where you’ve been.
I don’t know where you’re going to.

Put your hands down firmly, breath in deep
Let time carry you, carry you, carry you, carry you, carry you

12. Freelance Whales: Broken Horse

Bundle up and come with me now
Down the road to the burnt down barn
We could make a blanket of coats
And breathe our souls into the neighbor’s front lawn

13. Rachael Yamagata: Be Be Your Love

Everything's falling, and I am included in that
Oh, how I try to be just okay
Yeah, but all I ever really wanted
Was a little piece of you

And everybody's talking how I, can't, can't be your love
But I want, want, want to be your love
Want to be your love, for real

14. Josh Garrels: Beyond the Blue

Stand on the shores of a site unseen
The substance of this dwells in me
Cause my natural eyes only go skin deep
But the eyes of my heart anchor the sea
Plumbing the depths to the place in between
The tangible world and the land of a dreams
Because everything ain’t quite it seems
There’s more beneath the appearance of things
A beggar could be king within the shadows,
Of a wing

And to let go, of all, you cannot hold onto
For the hope, beyond the blue

15. Rollover Mariner: The Hour (Baptized at Sea)

The hour before you go under
Everything's clearer
You’ve got a man by your side
And his smile at night
The water surrounds you
Well that's when you wake up
And the devils come out

A good Captain won't give up on his ship
He'll hang around the whole way down
A good, good Ocean oh she won't quit
Until She watches the whole crew drown

Right now
This seems wild
But I want you to hold me
Or let me down

16. The Cloud Room: We Sleep in the Ocean

We could just leave tomorrow, never ever see any sorrow

and we'll sleep in the ocean, far from all the commotion

And we run and we hide, from the slow assassination tide

And we run and we fight, our skin is our only home tonight

17. The Weepies: Love Doesn’t Last Too Long

Rivers to the sea, rivers to the sea
How it is right now is how it's always gonna be
It's here then it's gone
Love doesn't last too long

18. The Autumn Film: Ocean Blue

I will love you to the end.
There’s need to pretend
That you are the one has sailed heart to the ocean blue.
I hoped it would be you.

19. Green River Ordinance: On Your Own

Nobody told you that nothin plays out like it seems
Twenty years now runnin scared of all of your dreams
Is it everything you thought it would be

When you come back I'll be alright
On your own again
Back to where it all began
The phone don't ring
And the tears they fall
But you carry on and on and on

20. Noah and the Whale: Give a Little Love

Yeah, but all is good
And my love is my whole being
And I've shared what I could
But if you give a little love, you can get a little love of your own
Don't break his heart

21. Seabear: Drunk Song

We can hide the time
and take a ride with the wind

Let it blow us home
Where we feel less alone

22. Frightened Rabbit: Swim Until You Can’t See Land

We salute at the threshold of the North Sea in my mind
And a nod to the boredom that drove me here to face the tide and swim.

Dip the toe in the ocean. Oh how it hardens and it numbs.
The rest of me is a version of man, built to collapse into crumbs.
And if I hadn't come down to the coast to disappear
I may have died in a land-slide of the rocks, the hopes and fears.

So swim until you can't see land.

i just got back from the beach a couple of weeks ago and i already miss it. i've always lived on the west coast so i can't imagine living anywhere where i couldn't readily see the ocean.

beautiful mix, downloading for sure. ♥

I would LOVE to live on the west coast. It's my dream location. The Oregon coast is mostly what I had in mind when I was creating this mix.

Thanks you. <3

seriously? i'm an oregonian, so i think that's really neat. i took my girlfriend to cannon beach; it was her first time seeing the ocean, so it was a great experience for us.

here's to hoping you get to see the coast again, and thank you so much for the music. ♥ i haven't found one song on here that i don't like.

Awesome! Very appropriate for summer, since I love oceans. I'd suggest putting these into one downloadable zip file or rar file. Much easier to download next time for many songs. Thanks!!

It's your discovery, good job!

scoob981,I was getting tired of writing the same information, so I made a word document with all the information I know on how to get a dvd copied. So instead of loads of little posts I do one big post with all the information needed to help members go in the right direction of backing up there original dvd's.So all I do now is copy and paste. It saves alot of time. :)edit: spelling, I need a new keyboard mine is possessed :p

This mix is so perfect. I'm an Oregonian moving to Tanzania for a year, and it will be the first time in my life that I haven't seen the ocean for a period greater than six weeks, so this will be a lovely reminder of home! Thanks for making it.
