High Tide of Love

The purest form of love requires stripping away all inhibitions and defenses, and loving courageously, without restriction. Indeed loving with a pure faith your lover will reciprocate just as purely. The singer in this song advises to “strip it all away” and “love without a say,” using the analogy of a high tides eroding all the lover’s defenses.

 

High Tide of Love

(Whitaker/Kelley 2016)

Verse 1

The high tide of love erodes the sand monolith

of your life, decodes, easing flecks of sand from you,

truth slices, implodes, in seas of pranks and myth,

while my arms enfold . . . sends the best back to you.

 

Chorus

Love means stripping it all away.

Love means trusting without a say,

lay yourself down, you’ll see our way,

when I lay down too, at the end of our day.

 

Verse 2

The seas reveal a sharp, crystalline door,

modern art, conceals, a shapely, expensive soul,

shining, it deals in a much more refining cure,

your soul appeals, it knows love makes searches into wholes.

 

Chorus

Love means stripping it all away.

Love means trusting without a say,

lay yourself down, you’ll see our way,

when I lay down too, at the end of our day.

 

Bridge

I feel your body rock in lovemaking,

arched, a cello pulsing, making

a promise how you’ll not be taking

more love than what you are waking.

 

Instrumental

 

Chorus

Love means stripping it all away.

Love means trusting without a say,

lay yourself down, you’ll see our way,

when I lay down too, at the end of our day.

 

Repeat Bridge

I feel your body rock in lovemaking,

arched, a cello pulsing, making

a promise how you’ll not be taking

more love than what you are waking.
