Tides Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Every sailor's son
Is taught when they are young
That the pull of the moon lingers on.
Something we can't escape
From Bimini 'round the cape
Mix in the wind and the sea and sing along.

To whom it may concern
I've always tried to learn
That the good days need to last.
Season with a lot of laughter
Here and in the ever after
With poetry and painters from my past.

So I follow the tides
On currents far and wide
Chalking up the stories and the miles.
Yes, I follow the tides
Big blue rides
And that's the reason I will never lose my smile.

Hoping to catch a ray
Looking to misbehave
As my lucky stars still shine above the sea.
Watching the ships roll in
I play that Otis song again
For the tourists and some mermaids by the sea.

And I follow the tides
Down my song lines far and wide
The world to me should still be free and wild.
Yes, I follow the tides
Give me more, big blue rides
And that's the reason I will never lose my smile.

Every sailor's son
Is taught when they are young
That the pull of the moon lingers on.
Something we can't escape.
Is it salt water or just fate?
Mix in the wind and the sea and sing along?

And we'll follow the tides
Down our song lines far and wide
It seems to me my life's still free and wild.
Yes, we'll follow the tides
Give us more big blue rides
And that's the reason I will never lose my smile
And that's the reason you should never lose your smile.
