Rising Tide ~ Halsted

Collect your things
We’ll leave tonight
To where the ground is high
Try not to think
Of what’s left behind
‘Cause we’ve got hills to climb

But don’t look at me
As if you were surprised
You’ve seen the cracks
And you felt the water rise
Our thumbs plug the leaks
But it’s between you and I
And the rising tide

All of our grief
Will fade in time
And we’ll come back when it’s dry

But don’t look at me
As if you were surprised
You’ve seen the cracks
And you felt the water rise
Our thumbs plug the leaks
But it’s between you and I
And the rising

Although the rains
May come back again
We’ll build new walls
With tales of where we’ve been
No one’s to blame
So keep on going

If you grow weak
Put your hand in mine
And we’ll walk ‘til morning light

But don’t look at me
As if you were surprised
You’ve seen the cracks
And you felt the water rise
Our thumbs plug the leaks
But it’s between you and I
Between you and I
And the rising tide
