Lemaitre – High Tide lyrics

[Intro]

[Pre-Chorus]
You, You know i tried,
You know I wouldn't lie,
You, You know I tried,
You know I wouldn't lie,
And it might be worth a try,

[Chorus]
So please,
Give me one last ride,
I'm stranded here,
Goin' nowhere,
Stuck ashore,
Waiting for a High Tide

[Instrumental - 20 seconds]

[Verse 1]
Now the tide is comin' in,
And heaven knows I didn't mean to sin,
I'm trying hard to stay afloat,

Waves crashing in,
On starboard side,
Realise I might have lost the fight,
And the sea is way too rough,
Looks like i'm going into the abyss,

But you know I know,
You know I know,
You know I know,

[Pre-Chorus]
You, You know i tried,
You know I wouldn't lie,
You, You know I tried,
You know I wouldn't lie,
And it might be worth a try,

[Chorus]
So please,
Give me one last ride,
I'm stranded here,
Goin' nowhere,
Stuck ashore,
Waiting for a High Tide

[Instrumental - 20 seconds]

[Verse 2]
It's been midnight sun,
For ninety days
,
I'm waiting for the next lunar phase
No I can see the crescent moon,
Guess we'll be living in the present soon,
Current pulled me out to sea,
The tide it finally set me free
,

But you know I know,
You know I know,
You know I know,

[Chorus]
So please,
Give me one last ride,
I'm stranded here,
Goin' nowhere,
Stuck ashore,
Waiting for a High Tide

But you know I know,
You know I know,
You know I know,

    This song is really just about using the lyrical idea of 'Lost At Sea' to show the feeling of being (/feeling) lost, E. G you don't know what to do next in your life and your stuck on that thought or you're in a bad situation and you have tried to get out of it ("You, You know I tried") but just can't do it.

    However, Verse 2 is about the opposite. For example "The tide it finally set me free," could be the equivalent of suddenly realising where you should go next or what you should do next. The same line could also be describing a moment of relief E. G when you get out of your bad situation and everything turns from being bad to good.
