about

‘By the Tides’ was written in response to the tragedy surrounding the ongoing loss of life in the Mediterranean Sea. Many of those hoping to find the world another way are small children, separated from their families and drowned at sea. We hope desperately that the tide changes and this terrible season of our history can come to an end.

lyrics

Will you still be waiting when the floods of water rain?
By the tides all as the seasons change.
And will you still be waiting when the water meets the main?
By the tides all as the seasons change.

Will you still be waiting as they haul the boats away?
By the tides all as the seasons change.
And will you still be waiting when they call the boats to bay?
By the tides all as the seasons change.

Will we reach this land to find the world another way?
Staying would have been for us far harder.
Brother, will the time pass in our mother’s arms again?
And the closing of the day bring in our father?

Will you still be waiting when my lungs being to fill?
By the tides all as the seasons change
And will you still be waiting when the cold becomes the chill?
By the tides all as the seasons change

Will you still be waiting when they find me sleeping still?
By the tides all as the seasons change.
And will you still be waiting when they take me to the hill?
By the tides all as the seasons change.

Will we reach this land to find the world another way?
Staying would have been for us far harder.
Brother, will the time pass in our mother’s arms again?
And the closing of the day bring in our father?

Will you still be waiting when they call the land to arms?
By the tides all as the seasons change.
And will you still be waiting while the boats are pulled from harm?
By the tides all as the seasons change.

Will you still be waiting when the ignorance has gone?
By the tides all as the seasons change.
And will you still be waiting when my hill becomes your home?
By the tides all as the seasons change.

By the tides all the seasons change.
