Rip Tide

Ocean Waves

The sun set
on a lonely beach
as the waves
crashed ashore…

It sailed away
out of reach
and like my love
I watched it go…

19
was a rocky age
to fall in love
[out of the blue]

At 19
we weren’t at the stage
to understand
what we would do

So we closed the doors
and our eyes
And hoped the feelings
wouldn’t grow

But forbidden ties
and tangled lies
never fail to grow!

We played a game
and teased the flame
what did we know!

Chorus:

And as the flames of love within became
fire
[Rip Tide]
Romancing young lovers danced
into
fire

And as we fought the flames of truth kept rising
higher
But [Rip tide]
Forbidden desires made us two
liars
And it’s hard to speak the truth once you’ve
lied

So,
Eight-years on
still,
you and I
Played out the same old
lines

You’d go out with other
guys
and no one heard me when
I cried

So
afraid to let it
show
so
insecure
[we lied]

So
caught up
in a web of lies
so
hypnotized
we
didn’t know

Entangled,
yet,
we said
goodbye
and hoped:
the pain
would have to
go

But forbidden ties
Entangle lives
and failed to go!
Now it’s not a game
it’s not a simple game
we can
ignore!

Chorus:

Coz now it’s tearing you inside because you
lied
[Rip Tide]
Drowning inside
love
you denied

Come the waves of truth you
once
defied
[you can’t deny it]
[Rip Tide]
Drowning inside
love
you belied

You thought it easier to
just
say
goodbye?

But it tears you up inside because
you lied!
[Rip Tide]
Nowhere to hide
baby
you lied

And as the waves of love you
once
denied
[come crashing through]
[Rip Tide]
Drowns you inside
love
you declined

You thought easier to
just
say
goodbye?
