Against The Tide


Lyrics

"Against The Tide"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

When everywhere I go feels like an uphill climb

If I just go with the flow, I have an easier time

I know whichever path I’m on always leads me back to you

You’re my whole world, and I know our love is true


But when the job gives me nothin' but stress 

The ocean calls me I must confess

Could I ever leave it all behind

And find a place to hide?


Against the tide, mother nature seems to want me to leave

Against the tide, the waves won’t push me back to your beach

The easy way out would be to float away 

But deep down inside I know I should stay

It’s a sign that I’m better off back home by your side

When I’m swimming against the tide


When life is hard, it feels like I’m stuck on an island

I don’t get anywhere, no matter how hard I’m tryin’

When all around me is danger, and I’m feelin’ blue

I appreciate what I have, and all I care about is you


But when a friend lets me down 

The ocean calls me to get out of town

Could I ever leave it all behind

And find a place to hide?


Against the tide, mother nature seems to want me to leave

Against the tide, the waves won’t push me back to your beach

The easy way out would be to float away 

But deep down inside I know I should stay

It’s a sign that I’m better off back home by your side

When I’m swimming against the tide


I’m just a guy, and sometimes my eyes wander

My mind drifts off to another place

But I wasn’t born to roam, and wherever you are is home

In my daydreams I always see your pretty face


Against the tide, mother nature seems to want me to leave

Against the tide, the waves won’t push me back to your beach

The easy way out would be to float away 

But deep down inside I know I should stay

It’s a sign that I’m better off back home by your side

When I’m swimming against the tide
