The tide goes out, the tide comes in, Emotions flare, then calm again. I try to swim the best I can But sometimes start to twist and spin.
Life is like the ocean in motion,
Moving up on the shore.
Canít control the waves or the current, Impossible to ignore.
Life is like the ocean in motion, Tide rushing in and out. Might as well stop trying to fight it And be in the here and now.
It seems unfair, it makes me mad, I canít control the circumstance, But like the waves that meet the rocks I flow around the stumbling blocks.
BRIDGE And though the moon controls the tide The tide does not resist. Itís not sad; it doesnít get mad; It just finds a way to persist.
