Almost Like Being In Love Lyrics

(I) What If This Storm Ends?

What if this storm ends? And I don't see you As you are now Ever again

The perfect halo Of gold hair and lightning Sets you off against The planet's last dance

Just for a minute The silver forked sky Lit you up like a star That I will follow

Now it's found us Like I have found you I don't want to run Just overwhelm me

What if this storm ends? And leaves us nothing Except a memory A distant echo

I want pinned down I want unsettled Rattle cage after cage Until my blood boils

I want to see you As you are now Every single day That I am living

Painted in flames All peeling thunder Be the lightning in me That strikes relentless


(II) The Sunlight Through The Flags

From here the caravans are kids toys And I can hold them all in my palm I watch the sea creep round the corner It connects the dots from here to you The sunlight burning through the loose flags Painted high on white church walls I chase my blood from brain to thumped heart Until I'm out of breath for trying

Worry not everything is sound This is the safest place you've found The only noise beating out is ours Lacing our tea from honey jars

These accidents of faith and nature They tend to stick in the spokes of you But every now and then the trend bucks And you're repaired by more than glue

Worry not everything is sound This is the safest place you've found The only noise beating out is ours Lacing our tea from honey jars

Why don't you rest your fragile bones A minute ago you looked alone Stop waving your arms you're safe and dry Breathe in and drink up the winter sky


(III) Daybreak

Slowly the day breaks apart in our hands And soft hallelujahs flow in from the church The one on the corner you said frightened you It was too dark and too large to find your soul in

Something was bound to go right sometime today All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing That we could see for miles and miles

And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth When you held onto me like I was your little life raft Please know that you were mine as well Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

As motionless cars rust on driveways and curbs You take off your raincoat and stretch out your arms We both laugh out loud and surrender to it The sheer force of sky and the cold magnet Earth

Something was bound to go right sometime today All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing That we could see for miles and miles

And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth When you held onto me like I was your little life raft Please know that you were mine as well Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood
