Ride the Tide

Words and Music by Colin Ward

You got to ride the tide as it takes you away,
See the jewels up in the sky,
The bright north star can be your guide
While the waves go rolling by

Been sailing now for thirty years,
Seen the islands, felt the rain,
Had mal de mer and been real scared,
But I've always gone again

You got to ride the tide as it takes you away,
See the jewels up in the sky,
The bright north star can be your guide
While the waves go rolling by

If you never cut the lines you'll never leave,
You'll miss the salt air too,
It's hard to leave when you're feeling safe,
But you'll never see somewhere new,

You got to ride the tide as it takes you away,
See the jewels up in the sky,
The bright north star can be your guide
While the waves go rolling by

You'll miss the folks that you left behind,
They'll be there when you get home,
Meet new friends along the way,
Be glad you had the will to roam,
You got to ride the tide as it takes you away,
See the jewels up in the sky,
The bright north star can be your guide
While the waves go rolling by
