Dark and Stormy

The morning’s full of rain
I listen to the murmur
Of the breaking waves
If you are afraid
If you feel uncertain
Honey, let me change your mind

On these summer days
Your dark and stormy ways
They captivate
Like those who came before me
I am captured by your gaze
Drawn into the flames
They leave no trace
Of one thing I am certain
I can’t turn away, I can’t turn away

Not an hour goes by
In which I don’t envision
Your face in my mind, no
I am hypnotized
I bite my lip for your beauty
Leaves me mesmerised

On these summer days
Your dark and stormy ways
They captivate
Like those who came before me
I am captured by your gaze
Drawn into the flames
They leave no trace
Of one thing I am certain
I can’t turn away, I can’t turn away
I can’t turn away…

On these summer days
Your dark and stormy ways
They captivate
Like those who came before me
I am captured by your gaze
Drawn into the flames
They leave no trace
Of one thing I am certain
I can’t turn away, I can’t turn away

Song Notes

Mark said of the song during the writing of Twilight of the Innocents:

This songs quite different for us, the basic track is quite sparse, it’s all live and has quite a laid back chilled out feel, as does the vocal which really makes the song. It’s really quite hard to describe, the vocals are talking about falling for someone, knowing you’ve been there before and been burned but going along with it, knowing (as you do when you’re a bit older) that nothing’s for certain… this turned out better than we originally thought and therefore is an album contender. The music has a kind of repressed feel to it, think humid summer thunderstorms… take that for whatever you want.
