Ocean Eyes Lyrics

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...

    Everyone's saying this is about falling in love with someone who has nice eyes. Not necessarily. It could be a father, a cousin. A friend. Maybe she has to say goodbye.
    "You really know how to make me cry
    When you gimme those ocean eyes"
    This line suggests that she can't keep it together. She's trying to be strong. Really, she assures you,she is. She's trying. But the eyes...those big, beautiful eyes. She'll never see them again, and the eyes that she knows and that she loves are filling with tears,and she doesn't know what to do, because it's NOT FAIR. It's not fair. Not fair that they have to leave her life, not fair that she'll miss them so much, not fair for their eyes to be so...so wide. So blue. So inescapably wonderful. It's not fair that they're not hers anymore. And she just can't take it because what is she supposed to do without them? Why would they leave her like this? She can't even get a last look of the beautiful eyes. She can't even look. She knows she'd break down if she did. She knows.

    Oof, sorry. That was a bit of a long one. I like writing, what can I say?

    The Girl is in Love with a Soldier. But in his Eyes she sees the Burning Cities, the Napalm, the Flares in Combat.
    He makes her cry and scares her when he looks at her and she falls into love in his eyes.
    But she knows he has a hard Diamond mind; caused by their walking in a world gone blind to the horrors of war.
    She falls into Love with him when she looks in his ocean eyes; but he scares her and makes her cry; because of his hard diamond mind.

    “ I've been watching you
    For some time
    Can't stop staring
    At those oceans eyes”
    She has a crush or obsession and is obsessed with their supposedly blue eyes.
    “ Burning cities
    And napalm skies
    Fifteen flares inside those ocean eyes
    Your ocean eyes”
    Again with the eyes.
    “ No fair
    You really know how to make me cry
    When you gimme those ocean eyes
    I'm scared”
    Maybe that person is with someone else or for whatever reason they can’t be together. Or that person doesn’t feel the same way about her.

    My interpretation is that Billie is trying to break up with someone she loves because she is being left alone too often or treated badly. She tries to let him go but cant seem to get him out of her mind. She keeps thinking back to his beautiful eyes and his unique mind, and just can't let go.

    I think the interpretation of ocean eyes is about this girl who gets obsessed with a guy having eyes clear and deep as the first ocean . At first she's just obsessed with his eyes, quite like no another. Then, just by staring at his eyes, she begins to understand him better and falls in love. But she's scared that he might not love her back and anytime she sees does ocean eyes, she cries.

    I think its about Billie herself, who has blue eyes and a brilliant strong precious mind, like diamond. Finneas (her brother) wrote it.

    I think it’s about someone trying their hardest not to fall in love with someone but the persons eyes always manage to have a hold on her, making it almost impossible not to melt into their arms.

    My interpretation is the writer suffers from PTSD. They are looking at themselves in the mirror, staring into their own eyes. They see the pain, the hurt, the despair. They love themselves, but it doesn't take away the damage dealt to them.

    Like I write books in my mind I think the person falls in love with this guy but he thinks she's a freak cause she has different eye colors. Everyone talks about her and they just judge her! So she wears sunglasses to cover her eye colors and the fact she cries. But the guy from the group finds her interesting and wonders what's so wrong with her? So his friends make a bet with him to try and make her fall for him! So he ends up talking to her asking her questions and starts to slowly fall for her! so, in my opinion, I think this is how I think of ocean eyes!

    "Ocean Eyes" don't exactly have to be blue eyes. Maybe it rather means that the person...crys alot? "Diamond mind" I think is meant that the person has a beautiful mind that outshines through the perspectives of other people. It's rather unique?

    I believe its about Billie falling for another person but she really doesn't want to but the feelings are difficult to fight when she looks into those "ocean eyes"

    I personally think this song is about Billie falling in love with someone who has really pretty blue eyes, hence the name “Ocean Eyes”. He’s not the greatest boyfriend and doesn’t treat her very well, but she’s debating whether or not to break up with him.

    Something about her trying to tell her boyfriend about a breakup or something. But I guess she she looks in his "Ocean Eyes" she feels bad. No FAAAAAIIIR HE HAS HYPNOSIS ON MEEEEEEEEEE.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    The girl is scared because she did something that he is not aware of and if he found out he would be mad and he doesn't know what it is but it makes his eyes seem like an ocean because he cant imagine what she hides and just makes her think hes hurting so she would feel for him, even though she is usually sad because of him this time she is sad for him.

    Do you all realize your are talking about yourselves when posting your interpretation?

    In fact, her brother (you all know this) wrote the song not Billie.

    The song is beautiful and beautifully sung. It is not as deep as you all are trying to make it.

    It mostly means that a girl has fallen in love with an older guy.. But not just any guy. This guy is completely different from all the other guys, which is why Billie feels that one movement inside his eyes could set her to tears. She is enraged with herself for falling in love with him yet she is obsessed with the beauty of his eyes and can't seem to fall back out of them. Despite the fact that the ocean eyes hide lots of dark secrets and a bright personality, there is also such a vastness inside them that truly amazes her in a way that she is almost entranced. However, this person is someone she feels she cannot be with and who she feels has left her alone. Because of this, his "ocean eyes" seem to haunt her emotionally.
