ELEVATE & CELEBRATE

Turning Tides

staring past the horizon
captive in the bay
a voice calling inside
turning tides
 
   O madly the sea pushes upon the land
   crashing down, down rushing over me
   O surely you can understand
   I can’t stand on the shore
   watching waves pound rocks into sand
   crashing down, down rushing over me
   no, time changes every man’s plans
    turning tides, turning tides
   a voice calling inside
 
may the gentle breath of midnight unfurl
let me set sail by the last star of truth
far beyond what miles can measure

love will remain between me and you

   O madly the sea pushes upon the land
   crashing down, down rushing over me
   O surely you can understand
   I can’t stand on the shore
   watching waves pound rocks into sand
   crashing down, down rushing over me
   no, time changes every man’s plans
    turning tides, turning tides
   a voice calling inside
 
mark the course by ancient celestial signs
follow the beacons of night home to you
far beyond what miles can measure
love will remain between me and you
 
   O madly the sea pushes upon the land
   crashing down, down rushing over me
   O surely you can understand
   I can’t stand on the shore
   watching waves pound rocks into sand
   crashing down, down rushing over me
   no, time changes every man’s plans
    turning tides, turning tides
   a voice calling inside
 
when Medusa casts skies above in black
and phantoms howl in the tempest fury
even then, love will guide me home to you
 
turn into the wind
hold a course for unseen shores
a voice calling inside
turning tides
