Storm Warning (1988)
I'd been drivin' all night and my body was achin', the sun was in my eyes
My kids were sleepin' in all sorts of shapes and my woman had started to realise
She looked at the scenery and looked at me - how long have I been asleep ?
I reached across and took her hand - It's a secret I had to keep
We'd better skip the sideshows & the salt stained shoes
the sunshine & the trip back home
Maybe a term or two of formal education, we got somethin' else to show them
Headin' north with a heavy heart, counting the hours,
here's to life on the ghost of a chance
we'll step down, take our seats along the back of the hall
and watch the rest of the crazy world dance.
I searched the faces along the quay and for the first time I could smile
I could take a lifetime of laughin' down, if the signs and the rumours were wild
But I couldn't accept goodbye forever, if the nightmare's comin' true
we stood together and watched the sky, as the long black shadows flew
We'd better skip the side shows and the salt stained shoes.....
