Changing Tide

(Music & Lyrics: Andersen)
Seeking wisdom, seeking truth, but disillusioned
Feeling more, yet feeling less
I’ve always been a fan of your evolution
Disappointments, they’re your tests

Alone you stand, strong but still so fragile
Bring on the changing tide, and let some joy inside, ‘cause

Living in fear you’ll stay
If you won’t willingly wash the dark away
Hidden softly within this truth
Lies the peace that’s somehow missed you

Never the season’s right
Even more reason to be here now is your time
How I wish for the day you’ll see
The love, the light you’re meant to be in this life

Along the way so far you’ve come, somehow no closer
Ever-elusive self-contentment
And though they tell you “it’s the journey,” all you see here are
Disappointments and false friends

So bold you stand, strong but ever tortured
Bring on the changing tide, and let some joy inside, ‘cause

Living in fear you’ll stay
If you won’t willingly wash the dark away
I won’t sell you passiveness
But it was never your job to fix all this, no

Never the season’s right
Even more reason to be here now is your time
How I wish for the day you’ll see
The love, the light you’re meant to be in this life

And what have you gained from all this sadness that you’ve realized?
Well, I know it’s not my life, but please, won’t you let some joy inside? ‘cause

Living in fear you’ll stay
If you won’t willingly wash the dark away
Hidden softly within this truth
Lies the piece that’s haunted you, and though

Never the season’s right
Even more reason to be here now is your time
How I wish for the day you’ll see
The love, the light you’re meant to be in this life, in this life, this life
