The Skies Will Break

Album: The Heart Speaks In Whispers (2016)
  • And the heart speaks in whispers

    And so it's all over
    So they've already run
    And we all fall down
    And the clouds, they blot out the sun
    Very soon your world could be different
    But you've got your mind set on silence, silence, silence

    The skies will break for you, my friend
    The skies will break for you, my friend
    The waves will part, the seas will rend
    The skies will break for you, my friend
    The skies will break for you, my friend
    It won't be long until it ends
    Singing whoa

    But the heart speaks in whispers, you've got to listen

    And the crowd is so loud
    It feels like they'll drown you out
    And the waves crash down
    And there's chaos all around
    Don't let your mind rest on violence, violence, violence

    Oh, the skies will break for you, my friend
    The skies will break for you, my friend
    The waves will part, the seas will rend
    The skies will break for you, my friend
    The skies will break for you, my friend
    It won't be long until it ends
    Singing whoa

    'Cause the heart speaks in whispers
    And the heart speaks in whispers
    You've got to listen

    Oh, the skies will break for you, my friend
    The skies will break for you, my friend
    The waves will part, the seas will rend
    The skies will break for you, my friend
    The skies will break for you, my friend
    It won't be long until it ends
    Singing whoa

    Bright lights
    Streaming, we're golden!
    Sunlight, sunlight
    Revealing, we're golden!
    And you will know
    And you will know it
    And you will know
    And you will know it
    And you will know Writer/s: CORINNE BAILEY RAE, STEPHEN JAMES BROWN
