Have you noticed darling
how the heat has stolen
the little moments
That used to get us through a drought

It’s getting hotter
I can’t bear the thought of
you and me apart
too long we have gone without a

breakthrough at last, I’ve waited for days
for this uncertain weather to pass
Our breath returns, time to uncover
all that we love about each other

All these small confusions
clinging to my skin
the air is thick
with the things we’ve been holding in

But can you hear it coming
now the sky is rumbling
I am waiting for the thunder to deliver us

So take my hand and we'll turn our face skyward
Let the air lift the weight and revive us
Close your eyes and let the wind
give us back our wildness

Now stop and listen
to the falling rhythm
Moving closer in
As the day turns into water

I want our love to be
cool as the rain on our feet
fluid, subtle and sweet, able to offer
a breakthrough at last
