Low Tides Lyrics

(Whitaker/Kelley 2016)

 

 

Verse 1

Why is my life remembered for it’s sins,

and not its kindness?

People recall my loses, not my wins;

who sees my steadiness?

 

Chorus

I try so hard,

keep up my guard,

come away scarred,

just a big ol’punch card,

flee the graveyard,

I try so hard.

 

Verse 2

I guess we all paint a different picture

than what we intend,

I guess we all live an odd mixture

than what we pretend.

 

Chorus

I try so hard,

keep up my guard,

come away scarred,

just a big ol’punch card,

flee the graveyard,

I try so hard.

 

 

 

Bridge

I felt the high tide

of love,

and the low tides

of my life . . .

one hell of a strange ride.

 

Hope I do much better

the next tide.

 

Instrumental

 

Chorus

I try so hard,

keep up my guard,

come away scarred,

just a big ol’punch card,

flee the graveyard,

I try so hard.
