Feel The Tide Lyrics

by Mumford & Sons

She sits him down in a stiff chair
Rubs his back and strokes his hair
Telling him it's okay to cry
But he just sits and stare

The merciless moon outside
Has nothing now he's come to realize
Only the desolation he feels
The cold distance inside

But you and I now
We can be alright
Just hold on to what we know is true

You and I now
Though it's cold inside
Feel the tide turning

While the priest just sits and weeps
Lamenting the fact that he can see
Darkness and light in so much detail
He has given himself over

Refusing what he knows to be real
He turns away from every meal
Starving himself of goodness
He doesn't think he can heal

But you and I now
We can be alright
Just hold on to what we know is true

You and I now
Though it's cold inside
Feel the tide turning

"What if I've lost all I had?"
Says the stranger to his dad
And the witness is confused
He can't tell what is bad

Instead he runs up to the nearest girl
And he comments on her glorious curls
Says, "Darling come with me
I'll show you a whole new world"

But you and I now
We can be alright
Just hold on to what we know is true

You and I now
Though it's cold inside
Feel the tide turning

You and I now
We can be alright
Just hold on to what we know is true

You and I now
Though it's cold inside
Feel the tide turning
