Behold the Hurricane

  • I'm in love with the night
    Every breath of this house creaking
    I'm familiar with the cold and the windows and the doors
    And the sound of my heart beating
    Beating in and out of time

    And it's such a shame
    I heard the wind say this morning
    Be still my heart
    I age by years at the mention of your name
    What a pity this season
    You remember me, my lover
    I don't recognize myself
    I'm not the man you love
    Behold the hurricane
    Behold the hurricane

    I walk around these empty rooms
    We once moved like the morning
    Silhouettes they haunt this house
    Like a memory haunts me now
    As if it were a dream
    As if it were a dream

    And it's such a shame
    I heard the wind say this morning
    Be still my heart
    I age by years at the mention of your name
    What a pity this season
    You remember me, my lover
    I don't recognize myself
    I'm not the man you love
    Behold the hurricane
    Behold the hurricane

    I heard the moon has visions of her nightly
    I heard the mighty rivers cry out her
    I saw the heaven and the earth
    I saw the heavens and the earth cry alone to you

    And it's such a shame
    I heard the wind say this morning
    Be still my heart
    I age by years at the mention of your name
    What a pity this season
    You remember me, my lover
    I don't recognize myself
    I'm not the man you love
    Behold the hurricane
