In a couple of years, tides have turned from
Boos to cheers and in spite of
The weather, we can learn to make it
In a small period of time, the tides have turned — meaning the conditions have been reversed — from dislike to admiration (“boos to cheers”).
Regardless of the changing conditions, if the youth come together, they will survive, and the stars will rise again.
