Blown Away

My car won’t start, but my heart is beating hard.
I’m walking down the dark alley to your door.
And he met me in silence with a white rag to stop the bleeding.
My face was flushed and my forehead was warm.

When our eyes met and our pulse raced, what did we know?
To guess how many lives we’d lived together -
were we cut from the same stone?
Oh the mind can play tricks on lonely hearts,
when you find you feel better together than when you’re apart.

And I know you couldn’t save me -
I know no one can.
I’m standing in the eye of the storm just looking for an escape plan.
My voice is the howling wind,
my eyes cry like rain,
my house has been blown down…
will I ever be the same?

Why do I hold on when nothing stays?
Subtle as sand changing shape underneath a relentless wave.
Oh love is so tender, love can be so strong,
love can feel so right even when we know it’s wrong.

And I know you couldn’t save me -
I know no one can.
I’m standing in the eye of the storm just looking for an escape plan.
My voice is the howling wind,
my eyes cry like rain,
my house has been blown down…
will I ever be the same?
Oh my house has been blown down.
I’ll never be the same.
