A beautiful, beloved Japanese song, it tells of a man who goes to the ocean to reflect upon his life. In each wave he sees opportunity. Though the retreat of each wave may reflect his failures, a new wave of hope soon appears. It carries him, it lifts him, and sends him toward his destiny. Sing the song in the original Japanese, or in the English version provided by Randy Stenson.

Embraced by the sea, although he may fail,
a real man will hold on to his passionate dream
Embraced by the sea, although he may be alone,
a real man must ride over the waves
while guided by the stars.
Oh sea, my sea, that deep love that you provide
Your heart accepts a manís feelings
And gives us hope for tomorrow.
Although it may be only mine,
I entrust my life to you.
Although it may be once,
letís survive a storm and travel to a far place.
Oh sea, my sea, that deep love that you provide
Embrace a manís emptiness into your arms.
