Jack And Jack – Tides lyrics

When the tide hits you straight in the face
Life is getting harder treading water, got nowhere to go
And as the time slips away, day by day
Stranded in the ocean, every open door has now been closed
Deadbolt locked, no escape
Feeling like an outcast, so out of place
And I know the tides might take you away
But don't you worry there's no hurry for tomorrow
Cause today's still young

Now you've hit rock bottom and you're feeling lost at sea
Just keep your head above the water
And I know you'll find some way to breathe
When the tides they drag you down
When the tides they drag you down

Down under, wetter than you've ever been, well you know
When the tides they pull you out
When the tides they pull you out
Out so far, Lord teach me how to swim, how to swim
Stay away from the bad tides
Only go where there's good vibes


The good vibes, I knew I would choose positivity
But still I realize my life is so much more
I know this life ain't what you bargained for
But honestly you never know what life has got in store
Cause everybody's gonna make it if they try
You persevere through your fears, never.
Fold your hands in a prayer to the sky
And let your worries wash away with the tides
And I'm singing

Now you've hit rock bottom and you're feeling lost at sea
Just keep your head above the water
And I know you'll find some way to breathe
When the tides they drag you down
When the tides they drag you down
Down under, wetter than you've ever been, well you know
When the tides they pull you out
When the tides they pull you out
Out so far, Lord teach me how to swim, how to swim
Stay away from the bad tides
Only go where there's good vibes

And you got to keep your chin up, keep your head held high
Just forget about the bad tides, let em roll on by
And you got to keep your chin up, keep your head held high
Just forget about the bad tides, let em roll on by

When the tides they drag you down
When the tides they drag you down
Down under, wetter than you've ever been, well you know
When the tides they pull you out
When the tides they pull you out
Out so far, Lord teach me how to swim, how to swim
Stay away from the bad tides
Only go where there's good vibes
Stay away from the bad tides
Only go where there's good vibes

    The song basically about when people go thru hard times in their lives. "now you've hit rock bottom and your feeling lost at sea just keep you head above the water and you will find someway to breath" saying that when your in a situation and don't know what to do just keep your head up high and it will get better. This song has a very great and important message that you should surround yourself with positivity and that things do get better also to trust in God! I am a huge fan and I believe that this message should be spread around because of how inspirational it is! Great Job Jack and Jack!

    This is really good! They are really good and put so much into this song. This song is mainly about when people go through hard trial in their lives. Because we go through so much and people try to always rein our good moments. Have a good those people actually hurt you then ask God for that help that you shouldn't bump into people like that. Stay Away from the Bad Tides. Also like the song says fold your hands up in a prayer to the sky! So in conclusion its a positive song when you are going through a lot. It helps because it lifts you up. Thanks Jack And Jack!
