Low Tide

From goodbye to goodbye
When it’s high time, you know it’s high time
You could sit by and watch high tide
Turn low tide in no time

You drove down to the parking lot
And walked alone into the oxbow woods
I can’t believe you never got caught
I woulda been killed right where I stood

Yeah your old man on the telephone
Saying why don’t you ever come home
Saying where did you run off to
You know you don’t have to go it all alone

Get up, get gone, where will you go
It’s a deadlock, it’s a no-go
Driving fast over the overpass
The old timers wanna take it so slow
Yeah the old timers wanna take it so slow

I dreamt of a different town
Where the cops never came around and
I dreamt of a midnight choir
I loved the way the hymns resounded

I would like to be so high
I’m so low when I’m the one in need and
I would like to come inside
Take inventory of your diseases

You drove South on the freeway
In California, you are never alone
A thousand demanding notices
Your rent, you car payments, your student loans

I know it’s smart to be honest
But I don’t wanna give anything away
I’m putting all my money down on this
I wanna hear you say you’re glad you stayed
I wanna hear you say you’re glad you stayed
