On days like this we would linger by the ocean
When we would dream as we lay there side by side
I don't know why but one day you got the notion
To sit and watch for the changing of the tide.
And then he came just to ask a foolish question
But jealousy in my heart I could not hide
Though I don't believe it was really your intention
In your eyes I saw the changing of the tide.
--- Instrumental ---
Now you're gone from me all you left to me
Is the restless sea to keep me company
Now I'm here alone where we used to be together
I can't forget guess I never really try.
Fool that I am I'll go on and on forever
Just watching for the changing of the tide
(Fool that I am I'll go on and on forever)
Just watching for the changing of the tide...
