FIGHT THE TIDE

Started with a smile

Hopin’ dreamin’

Thought I saw you for a while

By the door

When you walked right in

Across the crowded floor

 

Winter turned into a summer breeze

A hint of what could happen to me?

 

Life became alive

Hopin’ dreamin’

You looked straight into my eyes

When you asked dead calm

Who I was hiding from? 

 

I was stunned beyond belief

I was so lonely then, in some kind of grief

You broke your way into my heart

Your honesty, spoke to me

 

Sunday school and church on time

Backyard filled with neighbors and wine

Kids on the screen from days gone by

Soccer mom dance through the nights of July

 

When you feel it might be over

Slipping through your hands [now]

You just look behind your shoulder

Turning back the time

 

You know love is like a rover

Moving like a wave

Love remains, inside your veins, you can’t fight the tide

You can’t fight the tide 

 

We were all so young

Hopin’ dreamin’

Never thought the day would come

When life stood still, against our will

Frozen in time

 

Work all day from nine to five 

Long for the weekends, to keep things alive

Listen to the voices deep inside

Even a lonely heart, has got something to hide

 

When you feel it might be over

Slipping through your hands now

You just look behind your shoulder

Turning back the time

 

You know love is like a rover

Moving like a wave

[Even though] love remains, inside your vein, you can’t fight the tide

No you can’t fight the tide
