Wrote this for some city dwelling friends who were struggling with life in general.

Lyrics

URBAN TIDE

Music and Lyrics by: Bill Dake ASCAP 2006

Movin' through this Urban Tide
Hand in hand and side by side
Life passin' by blurry eyed
Sometimes it's hard to know what's real

First impressions don't come twice
Good intentions, bad advice
Some play the game with loaded dice
While others seek the grail

Lessons learned from history books
Choices made, dirty looks
Sauces spoiled, too many cooks
It's the journey that's the prize

There's somethin' said for growin' old
Faces change as the story's told
Loves that ran from hot to cold
The dreams that shaped our lives
While

Movin' through this Urban Tide
Hand in hand and side by side
Life passin' by blurry eyed
Sometimes it's hard

We often shuffle blind
From feelin' fine to border line
Trouble's as common as a cold
Life's not a promise
Of only sunny climes and perfect rhymes
Bitchin' or winnin'
Sinkin' or swimmin'
As we move down the road

No dirty windows point of view
Can blur your vision to see what's true
An open heart will pull you through
This world of dark and light

The road less traveled often winds
Through hills and valleys that test the mind
We're not always seekin' what we find
But findin' what we need
While

Movin' through this Urban Tide
Hand in hand and side by side
Life passin' by blurry eyed
Sometimes it's hard
Sometimes it's hard
