Riptide Undertow
Lyrics by Ryan Lucas

When all my hopes are crashing
Across a threshing floor
Your words like currents pull me
Further from the shore

All you ever wanted
Cost more than I could know
An offering of surrender
The gift of letting go

Your moon still shines above me
But darkness stirs below
How long must I keep fighting against
This riptide undertow?
Oh, the riptide of my soul

I used to kneel for hours
Without a spoken word
I mostly showed I cared in ways
You never would have heard

Once you held me softly
Now I tread alone
And time is drifting faster still
So far away from home

Your moon still shines above me
But darkness stirs below
How long must I keep fighting against
This riptide undertow?
Oh, the riptide of my soul

I tried to walk on water
Above a raging sea
Till I sank through my reflection
As the wind howled over me

All you ever wanted
Cost more than I could know
An offering of surrender
The gift of letting go

Your moon still shines above me
But darkness stirs below
How long must I keep fighting against
This riptide undertow?
Oh, the riptide of my soul
