The Flood

Charted: 35
  • Broken people get recycled
    And I hope that I will.
    Sometimes we're thrown off our pathways
    What I thought was my way home
    Wasn't the place I know
    I'm certain nothing's certain
    What we own becomes our prison
    My possessions will be gone
    Back to where they came from

    Blame, no one is to blame
    As natural as the rain that falls
    Here comes the Flood again

    See the rock that you hold onto
    Is it gonna save you
    When the earth begins to crumble?
    Why do you feel you have to hold on?
    Imagine if you let go

    Blame, no one is to blame
    As natural as the rain that falls
    Here comes the Flood again

    Wash away the weight that pulls you down
    Ride the waves that free you from the dusk?

    Don't trust your eyes
    It's easy to believe them
    Know in your heart
    That you can leave your prison

    Don't trust your mind
    It's not always listening
    Turn on the lights
    And feel the ancient rhythm

    Don't trust your eyes
    It's easy to believe them
    Know in your heart
    That you can leave your prison

    Blame, no one is to blame
    As natural as the rain that falls
    Here comes the Flood again Writer/s: KATIE MELUA, GUY CHAMBERS, LAUREN CHRISTY
