Behold the hurricane

I remember everything we had.
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.

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 name.
And I saw the heavens and the earth.
Yes I saw the heavens and the earth cry over you.

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.

At the door the leaves had fallen.
Suddenly I realized that you were gone.
Suddenly I realized that you were gone.
Behold the hurricane.

About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.
