The Tide Falls Away Lyrics

Artists: Dar Williams

Album: Promised Land-15

I walked the spiraling village one night
Drawn by the word of a bell or a light
Out on the flat side it rolls to a spire
All becomes clear as
The tide falls away

Parent and child and an ocean between
One is not heard and the other not seen
Too many bottles but each had a message inside
All becomes clear as
The tide falls away
All becomes clear as
The tide falls away

Lucky we are when the stars leave us singing a hymn
Or a dirge of the ocean is gone
Is gone

And the old woman just stares at her hands
So many heroes have crumbled to sand
All those cathedrals were merely by men
It all becomes clear as
The tide falls away
All becomes clear as
The tide falls away
All falls away
The Tide Falls Away Lyrics
