The Ocean is My Friend by Gutara, young woman in year 7 They don’t understand When their feet touch the sand Oh, I want to swim in the ocean They don’t know what they have done When they see that you are gone Oh, I want to swim in the ocean In the ocean I feel free Free to be me The waves they taste like tears And they wash away my fears Oh, I want to be in the ocean CHORUS The water is calling me, calling me, calling me The water is calling me, calling me, calling me I have never been quite so deep Have never had so many peeps The ocean she is my friend Me and her until the end Oh, I want to swim in the ocean CHORUS The water is calling me, calling me, calling me The water is calling me, calling me, calling me

This song lyric was offered to one of our advocates for publication by a young woman during a visit to a residential care house.  Thanks to Philip Ellison for the design.
