Feel The Tide (Mumford & Sons)

She sits him down in a stiff chair Rubs his back and strokes his hair Telling him it's okay to cry But he just sits and stare The merciless moon outside Has nothing now he's come to realize Only the desolation he feels The cold distance inside But you and I now We can be alright Just hold on to what we know is true You and I now Though it's cold inside Feel the tide turning While the priest just sits and weeps Lamenting the fact that he can see Darkness and light in so much detail He has given himself over Refusing what he knows to be real He turns away from every meal Starving himself of goodness He doesn't think he can heal But you and I now We can be alright Just hold on to what we know is true You and I now Though it's cold inside Feel the tide turning "What if I've lost all I had?" Says the stranger to his dad And the witness is confused He can't tell what is bad Instead he runs up to the nearest girl And he comments on her glorious curls Says, "Darling come with me I'll show you a whole new world" But you and I now We can be alright Just hold on to what we know is true You and I now Though it's cold inside Feel the tide turning You and I now We can be alright Just hold on to what we know is true You and I now Though it's cold inside Feel the tide turning
