Feel the tide


She sits him down in a stiff chair
Rubs his back and strokes his hair
Telling him it’s ok to cry but he just sits and stares
The merciless moon outside, has nothing now he’s come to realize
Only the desolation he feels, the cold distance inside

But you and I now, we can be alright
Just hold on to what we know is true
You and I now, ‘though it’s cold inside
Can feel the tide turning

While the priest just sits and weeps
Lamenting the fact that he can see
Darkness and light in so much detail he has given himself over
Refusing what he knows to be real,
Turns away from every meal
Starving himself of goodness,
He don’t think he can heal

But you and I now, we can be alright
Just hold on to what we know is true
You and I now, ‘though it’s cold inside
Can feel the tide turning

What if I’ve lost all I had
Says the stranger to his dad
And the witness is confused
He can’t tell what is bad
Instead he runs up to the nearest girl
And he comments on her glorious curls
Says darling come with me
I’ll show you a whole new world

its hard for the both of us
so much harder because the love
has yet to fade
but we’ll be alright
we’ll get by
my love
