lyrics

The city's overcome by a freezing, cold wind
That cuts through all my layers as it pierces through my skin
As I walk down the street, kicking leaves up with my feet
And wonder where it is I'm supposed to be

I watch the waves crashing hard into the rocks
As if pushing this great city to the side
The boats out on the lake, my god how they did shake
Fighting off the strong freshwater tide

Listen to the wind howling through the trees
Now listen to my voice, it's the same thing
The gravel in my throat is like an overdriven road
That takes me on my way, oh so slowly
It's slowly to nowhere for me

Standing in the rain, I watched your taillights pull away
Crying hard from red and yellow bulbs
But my eyes, they stayed dry under that gray and sobbing sky
As the thunder and the lightning raged inside

Bitter and alone, shaking, wet, and cold
I couldn't help but think about that tide
The whitecaps on the waves
The wind ripping through the sails
Trying hard to push it all aside

Listen to the wind howling through the trees
Now listen to my voice, it's the same thing
The gravel in my throat is like an overdriven road
That takes me on my way, oh so slowly
It's slowly to nowhere for me

I long for brick and urban street
To light the ground and guide my feet
To block the stars
Remind me that there's more than wishful thinking

Listen to the wind howling through the trees
Now listen to my voice, it's the same thing
The gravel in my throat is like an overdriven road
That takes me on my way, oh so slowly
It's slowly to nowhere for me
