“The Tide Is Rising” is the b-side of the 2020 holiday single by Cold Holiday.

We walked a hundred miles a day
Into the wind that dragged us away
We faced the rain to dodge the snow
The shore was dark, the water was cold

and the tide was rising

We never meant to end up here
Or keep returning year after year
These days the one thing you can do
When something pushes you down is refuse

as the tide is rising

Maybe we’ll find a path ahead
Maybe we’ll find another storm there instead
Maybe we’ll have to turn around
But when we get there
We will not stay down

as the tide is rising
