Waiting For The Tide

It's a old-fashioned break-up song, when you realise that something isn't working

I wish I could've been a better man to you babe

I wish want we wanted could've been the same

Our souls cracking, being carried by the tide

And baby how it shows

We're failing to win the race, we've come down to this

It's better just letting go

And all things must decay

Our love neglected, left to decay

And we're just broken glass

Waiting for the tide to carry us away

I wish I could've made the effort to start again

Instead I dragged our love through the mud again

Our hearts, scarred and burned, turning to embers

How painful it feels to me

I secretly wish you could find someone better

I wish for tomorrow that you were free

And all things must decay

Our love neglected, left to decay

And we're just broken glass

Waiting for the tide to carry us away

Here comes the fall

And I smile because it's what I deserve

One day I could love somebody

Better than I loved her

And all things must decay

Our love neglected, left to decay

And we're just broken glass

Waiting for the tide to carry us away

The End
