Against The Tide

( Colin Hay / John Clifforth )

“The lines are broken between she and I
But the road is as straight as an arrow
We had walked in a beautiful forest
But after a while the trees grew thin
And offered little shade
Now more than ever our lives move of their own volition”

I sleep walk in the night
I don’t wanna
I don’t wanna
I let the day decide

I’m searching for
I’m searching for

I swim against the tide
I only wanna
I only wanna
Get to the other side
You can always find me
Waiting for the right time
But I can’t wait till the end

You moved out of reach
Slipped out of my hands
I live in my dreams
I have of you still holding me
I’m drifting out to sea
Someone’s watching over me

So I won’t drown
Moving closer ever closer
Your love is like the rain

Saturating

The tide is coming in
Carrying me
And though the lines are down
I’m still holding
But I, I can no longer pretend

You moved out of reach
Slipped out of my hands
I live in my dreams
I have of you still holding me

Carrying me
Saturating
