lyrics

By the time we reached the water
we were shaking with the Pacific Ocean chill
And the fog swirled
We flung ourselves headlong into the sea
plunging from a year of misery
and our dogs danced nervous on the shore

Hugged old friends and wished them a good New Year
We all agreed that this would be McCaughan's year for sure

Then we hit the Riptide
And drank in the New Year
Had some Bloody Marys and some pitchers of beer
Warmed our bones by the fire
Like so often before
I refuse to believe that won't happen no more
It's only a matter of time until the Tide rises again

When the news hit I was on the Superior shore
It came from a town I don't live in no more
But it cut me right to the bone
Place can anchor memory
Adrift I found myself longing to be back there
In my foggy home
Seems so stupid now to cry
It's already been so long since we said our last goodbyes

But now I wanna hit the Riptide
And drink in the New Year
Have some Bloody Marys and some pitchers of beer
We'll warm our bones by the fire
Like so often before
I refuse to believe it won't happen no more
It's only a matter of time until the Tide rises again

Darling it's two AM it's time for closing
The cops are all sideways and I think Erin’s broken
Best we leave of our own accord
Arm in arm fog breathing
Arm in arm walking and weaving
Singing a song as we stagger our way home


Yeah we'll hit the Riptide
Like so often before
I refuse to believe that won't happen no more
It's only a matter of time until the Tide rises again
