When the Wild Wind Blows Lyrics

10. When the Wild Wind Blows (10:59)
Track rating :  80 / 100      Votes :  1     
Have you heard what they said on the news today?
Have you heard what is coming to us all?
That the world as we know, it will be coming to an end
Have you heard, have you heard?

He sees them in the distance when the darkened clouds roll
He could feel tension in the atmosphere
He would look in the mirror, see an old man now
Does it matter they survive somehow?

They said there's nothing can be done about the situation
They said there's nothing you can do at all
To sit and wait around for something to occur
Did you know, did you know?

As he stares across the garden looking at the meadows
Wonders if they'll ever grow again
The desperation of the situation getting graver
Getting ready when the wild wind blows

Have you seen what they said on the news today?
Have you heard what they said about us all?
Do you know what is happening to just every one of us
Have you heard, have you heard?

There will be a catastrophe, the like we've never seen
There will be something that will light the sky
That the world as we know it, it will never be the same
Did you know, did you know?

He carries everything into the shelter, not a fuss
Getting ready when the moment comes
He has enough supplies to last them for a year or two
Good to have because you never know

They tell us nothing that we don't already know about
They tell us nothing that is real at all
They only fill us with the stuff that they want
Did you know, did you know?

He's nearly finished with the preparations for the day
He's getting tired, that'll do for now
They are preparing for the very worst to come to them
Getting ready when the wild wind blows

He sees the picture on the wall
It's falling down, upside down
He sees a teardrop from his wife
Roll down her face, saying grace

Remember times they had
They flash right through his mind, left behind
Of a lifetime spent together
Long ago will be gone

They've been preparing for some weeks now
For when the crucial moment comes
To take their refuge in the shelter
Let them prepare for what will come

They make a tea and sit there waiting
They're in the shelter feeling snug
Not long to wait for absolution
Don't make a fuss, just sit and wait

Can't believe all the lying
All the screams are denying
That the moments of truth
Have begun

Can't you see it on the TV?
Don't believe them in the least bit
Now the days of our ending
Have begun

Say a prayer when it's all over
Survivors unite, all as one
Got to try and help each other
Got the will to overcome

I can't believe all the lying
All the screens are denying
That the moments of truth
Have begun

Can't you see it on the TV?
Don't believe them in the least bit
Now the days of our ending
Have begun

When they found them
Had their arms wrapped around each other
Their tins of poison laying
Nearby their clothes

The day they both mistook an earthquake
For the fallout
Just another
When the wild wind blows....
