"The Tide" is the thirteenth and final track from the deluxe edition of Niall's debut solo album "Flicker."

Background

“The Tide” talks about all the struggles and obstacles the protagonist feels in their rocky relationships with their loved ones, with “the tide” being the representation of everything that’s threatened to “wash away” their connection.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh no, get ready
I feel it coming, it's coming again
I stay close, hold steady
'Cause I don't want it, don't want it to end
Those brown eyes, crying in a crowded bar
Every time we get this close
It's always pulling us apart

[Chorus]
Don't let the tide come and wash us away
Don't let the tide come and take me
I just want a safe place to hide us away
So don't let the tide come and take me
Don't let the tide come and wash us away
Don't let the tide come and take me
Far from with you, where I wanna stay
So don't let the tide come and take me

[Verse 2]
Oh no, get ready
I feel it coming, it's coming again
Don't give up, and don't let me give up either
'Cause I'm needing you to understand
When I go, all I ever seem to fear
Is that you're gonna find someone
And slowly watch me disappear

[Chorus]
Don't let the tide come and wash us away
Don't let the tide come and take me
I just want a safe place to hide us away
So don't let the tide come and take me
Don't let the tide come and wash us away
Don't let the tide come and take me
Far from with you, where I wanna stay
So don't let the tide come and take me

[Bridge]
Oh no, get ready
Yeah, I feel it coming, it's coming again
Stay close and hold steady
'Cause I don't want it, don't want it to end
No, no, I don't want it, don't want it to end

[Chorus]
Don't let the tide come and wash us away
Don't let the tide come and take me
I just want a safe place to hide us away
So don't let the tide come and take me
Don't let the tide come and wash us away
Don't let the tide come and take me
Far from with you, where I wanna stay
So don't let the tide come and take me
