High tide
Summer in the city
The kids are looking pretty
But isn't it a pity that the sunshine
Is followed by thunder?
With thoughts of going under
And is it any wonder

Why the sea's
Been calling out to me?
I seem to spend my whole life running
From people who could be
The death of you and me
'Cause I can feel the storm clouds sucking up my soul

High tide
Life is getting faster
And no one has the answer
I try to face the day down in a new way
The bottom of a bottle
Is every man's apostle
Let's run away together

You and me
Forever we'd be free
Free to spend our whole lives running
From people who would be
The death of you and me
'Cause I can feel the storm clouds
Sucking up my soul

Let's run away to sea
Forever we'd be free
Free to spend our whole lives running
From people who would be
The death of you and me
'Cause I can feel the storm clouds coming

I'm watching my TV,
Or is it watching me?
I see another new day dawning
It's rising over me
And my mortality
And I can feel the storm clouds
Sucking up my soul

    Th emeaning of the song if for every one to interpret for their own. Noel said it in an interview, everyone is free to reflect his own interpretation on the music. However, this is for sure a beautiful song and a masterpiece of thes contemporary genius.

    It's about running away from obstacles and people that have the chance of ruining your relationship, and how he just wants to leave everyone behind and be solely with his lover

    It's about running away together from a small town or small minded people who just kill you with the way they think things should be. Its romantic, its a chance to get away, but its also a sentence to have to always be on the run from a life that just drags you down.
