Clannad – Turning Tide lyrics

Let me show you a face -in disguise
A colour that's faded
Swept aside by the tide.

Scene after scene
There's a grey dust that's in your eyes
A misty cover;
That hides on the turning tide.

The soul of a proud man drowns

Sad insinuation
Using words that are unwise
How they waver in your eyes
Wheels within wheels are turning
By now you know

The soul of a proud man drowns
For so long a proud man

As we face the fierce wind
And the turning tide.
