lyrics

For some of us, it's a story too far
Of distant lands, of pearls and bars
For others there's still a life untold
In dusty towns they never found gold

There are those who take it all too hard
They stake their claims but bear the dull scars
For others there's still a grief unsound
In dusty towns unholy ground

But either way, the sea's unchanged
The lies it hears the lives it takes
All of them are foam upon the waves
And though some are lost, none are ever saved

For others there's a grief uncrowned
In gusty towns on holy ground

The tide that never turns
The sun that never burns
The summer wind that only makes you yearn

For storms to ride and waves of pride
On a tide that never turns
The tide that never turns

We all deride the waves of pride
You will never learn
On a tide that never turns

Three lost cities beyond the wind
Fatigued by fear, the changes begin
If time and tide sweep all away
Then what are we but the ocean spray?

Yet either way, the seasons change
The smiles we fake and rearrange
Emotion lost unto the feign
Now summer's gone we all feel the same pain

The tide that never turns
The sun that never burns
The summer wind that only makes you yearn

For waves to ride
and ways to hide
From a tide that never turns
From a tide that never turns

We all deride the waves of pride
You will never learn
On a tide that never turns
