The Wind Blows

Album: When The World Comes Down (2008)
  • I've got to breathe
    You can't take that from me
    Cause it's all that you left that's mine
    You had to leave
    And that's all I can see
    But you told me your love was blind

    There are times
    You're so impossible that I should sign a waiver
    And you will find
    Someone worth walking on when you ask me to go

    I'll leave when the wind blows
    Take a breath and there it goes
    I'll be outside of your window
    I'll pass by but I'll go slow
    I'll leave when the wind blows

    There was a day
    You threw our love away
    Then you passed it to someone new
    You wanna stay
    But since you wanna play
    We can finally say we're through

    There are times you're so impossible and you ask me to go

    I'll leave when the wind blows
    Take a breath and there it goes
    I'll be outside of your window
    I'll pass by but I'll go slow
    I'll leave when the wind blows

    You can scream there's just echoes
    Pass outside of your window
    You'll be sad that you let me go
    I'll leave but just know

    As I lay in solitude
    Oh what's a boy supposed to do
    I shake the very thought of you
    Me together, I remember
    Late nights when I stayed up late
    All I do is wait and wait
    Your never coming home to me
    That's the hardest thing to see

    I got to breathe
    You can't take that from me
    We can finally say we're through

    I'll leave when the wind blows
    Take a breath and there it goes
    I'll be outside of your window
    I'll pass by but I'll go slow
    I'll leave when the wind blows

    You can scream there's just echoes
    Pass outside of your window
    You'll be sad that you let me go
    On every face you'll ever know
    And everywhere you ever go
    You'll feel when the wind blows Writer/s: NICK WHEELER, TYSON RITTER
