My Oasis

Words and Music by Brad Cole

Same sun and the same moon, but its a mad, mad world
and this city buys and sells.
Like a beach that's full of empty shells,
I was empty as a dusty well
and torn and tattered I washed up on your shore.

I never had to meet you half way
Never mattered when I came or if I stayed

You're my, my Oasis, bruised and battered I washed up on your shore
You're my, my oasis, I'm comin back for more.

Same wave but a different ocean, and we were taking on the world,
But I was fallin like a stone.
You gave me colors blue and gold,
A cup of tea and a dream to hold
And tenderness to keep me from the cold.

I never had to meet you half way
Never mattered when I came or if I stayed

You're my, my Oasis, I was shocked and shattered but showed up at your door.
You're my, my oasis, take me back once more.

On the days I see all those shades of gray, then I drift off to you, drift off to you.
Now, I'm not the kind to be satisfied, yet I am here laughing like a child, right next to you, I want to belong to you

The seasons change and I wonder, does your water still shine blue?
Does your flag wave welcome in the breeze?
In this desert of humanity there's little left to capture me,
except the road that leads me back to you.


I never had to meet you half way,
Never mattered when I came or if I stayed.

'Cause, You're my, my Oasis, I was bruised and battered, but banging on your door
You're my, my oasis, will you take me back once more? You're my, my Oasis, You're my, my Oasis, You're my, my Oasis, Take me back once more.
