lyrics

-verse1-
the more I kept staring
through your swollen eyes
helped me remember
what we should keep in mind

that we tried this sober
but we both wasted time
only when we're plastered
do we forget the knives

I'm watching rising tides
drenched in rain and wet sand
too far from our shelter
with all we're better than

surges towards those three words
tornadoes break the sky
as that sandcastle fell
we'd never say goodbye

shoulder to shoulder
showered in this mist
but why hold you closer?
I blame you for all this

-chorus-
builds up slow
throughout my brain
it hits like a hurricane

a cyclone
in pouring rain
it hits like a hurricane

-verse2-
solidified visage
statues of ruin's youth
each blast of crashing tears
could've caved in our roof

fate twists us in circles
we spoke these words in floods
I heard you slowly waver
stream of thoughts would build up

and though we could both give
find that path back to shore
or drown ourselves in fate
go swim in more torture

against the sea, wind, waves
trees, earth, and universe
against pleas, tears, anger
sifting through written verse

when all we knew is no
we'll ignore the past tense
here I've described true love
losing any real sense

a drop in calm oceans
now watch this rocking rain
sweep us up off our feet
like love was a hurricane

and my greatest fear
ain't losing my mind
it's each thought itself
not quite being mine

-chorus-
builds up slow
throughout my brain
it hits like a hurricane

a cyclone
in pouring rain
it hits like a hurricane

builds up slow
throughout my brain
it hits like a hurricane

a cyclone
in pouring rain
it hits like a hurricane


-verse3-
a storm metaphor
us and what's in store
not like I'd hoped for
life pulled us from shore

been so long out here
pushed apart moments
where had we lost sight
wished this was different

remember the movement
mountains waves had washed away
like gods we'd stride the skies
currents blur yesterday

-outro-
just ignore it
and let it pass
be memory
watch it through glass

you don't need it
if it needs you
you're it's sustenance
don't let it use you
