Looking out on my roof last nightWoken up from a dreamI saw a typhoon coming in closeBringing the clouds down to the sea. Making the world look gray and aloneTaking all light from my viewKeeping everyone inAnd keeping me here with you. Around you nowI can't sleep no more, babyAround you stillDon't want to leave yet.
