I'm Looking For A Song, But Don't Know What It's Called Or Who Sung It. I Think It Came Out In The '90s. The Only Lyrics I Know Are: 'When The Ocean Meets The Sky, I'll Be Sailing." Can You Help?

The song that you're looking for is Rhythm of My Heart by Rod Stewart. The lyrics that you're thinking of are from the chorus, and are as follows:

'Oh the rhythm of my heart is beating like a drum
with the words "I love you" rolling off my tongue
No never will I roam for I know my place is home
where the ocean meets the sky I'll be sailing'

I think you're looking for the song titled' Rhythm Of My Heart' by Rod Stewart. Here are the complete lyrics for you:

Across the street the river runs
Down in the gutter life is slipping away
Let me still exist in another place
Running under cover of a helicopter blade

The flames are getting higher in effigy
Burning down the bridges of my memory
Love may still be alive somewhere someway
where they're downing only deer
a hundred steel towns away

Oh rhythm of my heart is beating like a drum
with the words "I love you" rolling off my tongue
No never will I roam for I know my place is home
where the ocean meets the sky
I'll be sailing

Photographs and kerosene light up my darkness
light it up, light it up
I can still feel the touch of your thin blue jeans
Running down the alley I've got my eyes all over you baby
Oh baby

Oh the rhythm of my heart is beating like a drum
with the words "I love you" rolling off my tongue
No never will I roam for I know my place is home
where the ocean meets the sky I'll be sailing
I'll be sailing

Oh I've got lightning in my veins
shifting like the handle of a slot machine
Love may still exist in another place
I'm just yanking back the handle
no expression on my face

Oh the rhythm of my heart is beating like a drum
with the words "I love you" rolling off my tongue
Never will I roam for I know my place is home
where the ocean meets the sky
I'll be sailing

Oh the rhythm of my heart is beating like a drum
with the words "I love you" rolling off my tongue
No never will I roam for I know my place is home
where the ocean meets the sky
I'll be sailing

The rhythm of my heart is beating like a drum
with the words "I love you" rolling off my tongue
Never will I roam for I know my place is home
where the ocean meets the sky
I'll be sailing high

  
I hope you meant this. Have fun!

I think that this song was inspired by the traditional Scottish song "Loch Lomond." The first time I heard it, I had Loch Lomond in mind, but the lyrics were totally different.

In any case, Stewart I think is a Scottish name anyway, so it just may be that that is how he came up with this song.
