lyrics

When the wind came in from the south west
I felt it’s weight upon my back
Baring down on me so heavily
Forcing it’s way in through the cracks

Every drop that falls would break my
Heart a little bit more.
I’d look up and wait for rivers to appear
Running down the plaster and the walls.

Don’t be anxious when the weather turns
The storms will pass and then
The wind will change direction
And the sun will shine on you again

I’m lining buckets on the floor to catch the rain when it falls
Bring some order to this scene
Eventually they’ll overflow and share with me their wealth you know
They’re always generous with me

When I take shelter from the storm I don’t know why it takes so long
For the rain to pass me by
I’m waiting patiently for sunshine to welcome me
Back into the warmth into the dry.

Don’t be anxious when the weather turns
The storms will pass and then
The wind will change direction
And the sun will shine on you again

You can’t stop the rain from falling you can store it up
Or let it wash away
The photographs and mementos it carries with it as it goes
Probably didn’t matter anyway

Don’t be anxious when the weather turns
The storms will pass and then
The wind will change direction
And the sun will shine on you again
