Lyrics

He’s so far out there, Changing course without knowing where to go, He’s getting nowhere, And the sad part is he doesn’t even know, That he’s swimmin’ against the tide, Just swimmin’ against the tide, And he’s too weary to know why he has grown so tired, Swimmin’ against the tide. He was so full of promise, So full of hope, thought he knew just what to do, But his hopes deceived him, And told him lies he convinced himself were true, And now he’s swimmin’ against the tide, Just swimmin’ against the tide, And he’s too weary to know why he has grown so tired, Swimmin’ against the tide. And he wonders where that shore he’s searched for so long is lyin’ Lord knows its not because he has not tried, But somehow its always just beyond his horizon, And he’s losin’ ground, Swimmin’ against the tide. And I’m so much like him, Thought I knew some things, but I find I seldom do, All the rules keep changin’, And everything I start gets finished before I’m through, And I’m swimmin’ against the tide, Just swimmin’ against the tide, And I’m too weary to know why I have grown so tired, Swimmin’ against the tide. And I wonder where that shore I’ve searched for so long is lyin,’ Lord knows its not because I have not tried, But somehow its always just beyond my horizon, And I’m losin’ ground, Swimmin’ against the tide. And I’m slowin’ down, Swimmin’ against the tide, swimmin’ against the tide.
