Listening For The Weather

Album: Beautiful Collision (2002)

  • So I'm listening for the weather to predict the coming day
    Leave all thought of expectation to the weather man
    No it doesn't really matter what it is he has to say
    'Cause tomorrows keep on blowing in from somewhere

    All the people that I know in the apartments down below
    Busy with their starring roles in their own tragedies

    Sunlight sends you on your way
    And those restless thoughts that cling to yesterday
    Never be afraid of change
    I'll call you on the phone
    I hate to leave you on your own
    But I'm coming home today

    And this busy inner city
    Has got nothing much to say
    And I know how much you're hanging round the letterbox
    And I'm sure that as I'm writing
    You'll be somewhere on your way
    In a supermarket checkout or the restaurant

    I've been doing what I'm told
    I've been busy growing old
    And the days are getting cold but that's alright with me

    Sunlight sends you on your way
    And those restless thoughts that cling to yesterday
    Never be afraid of change
    I'll call you on the phone
    I hate to leave you on your own
    But I'm coming home today
    Yes I'm coming home today

    I've been doing what I'm told
    I've been busy growing old
    And the days are getting cold but that's alright with me

    Sunlight sends you on your way
    And those restless thoughts that cling to yesterday
    Never be afraid of change Writer/s: BIC (BRIOLETTE KAH) RUNGA
