The tides have turned

No longer in your favor

My lesson I've learned

No longer will the fire burn.

The water was rough

Now calm in your wake

I'm strong but not your kind of tough.

I'll never be enough.

The fire's died, now smoldering embers

The smoke lifts my soul

As cleansing as the new Septembers

Though the fire's gone, I'm the only one that remembers.

I am the match, you are the wind

Strike me, light the spark.

Just to blow out my light again

Break me just to know how far I'd bend.

The tides have turned

No longer in your favor

My lesson I've learned

No longer will the fire burn.

Thank God the tides have turned.
