The Changing Tide

I remember the night

Of the day we first met

We held each other tight as we slept

And our hearts beat as one

As our souls were made whole

And we basked in the warmth of our love

 

I remember the days

That I spent by your side

Every minute as perfect as could be

All the time that we shared

It just can’t be compared

I know I’ll never feel that again

 

And I remember the look

Oh the look in your eyes

On the day that I went on my way

I remember the tears

Oh the tears in our eyes

As we both wished that I could just stay

 

But I didn’t have a choice

No I didn’t have a way

To stay with you for just one more day

Leaving you all alone

I went home on my own

As we tried to make it work from afar

 

Weeks went by, and we tried

To escape the rising tide

But in the end we had to say “let it be”

This is not what we wanted

This is not how we planned

But it’s better than drowning ‘neath the waves

 

And I remember the look

Oh the look in your eyes

On the day that I went on my way

I remember the tears

Oh the tears in our eyes

As we both wish I could have just stayed

 

As I remember that night

Of the first day we met

As I held you so tight in my arms

I made you a promise

That I sealed with a kiss

That I’d never see you come to harm

 

And I promise, yes I swear

That one day I will be there

Holding you in my arms once again

And when I do, you better know

I am never letting go

No I’m never ever letting go of you
