"This Weather" as written by and Patrick Wolf....
The storm blows around
This harbor town
I listen to its wind as a choir
The shipping forecast
Is crackling
Like wet wood upon a fire

And time slows and slips away
The tourists come around in May
'Till August when the clouds roll in
The pier cracks, the awnings fade
The Ferris wheel spins slowly in the rain,
The day is gone.

Under this weather
Under this weather
Such shadows are blossoming
Out at sea

I am not going to set myself free here
I am following some dark fortune
Some circle in me

Hold back the wind
Hold back the rain
I want to live
To see good weather

Hold back the years
Hold back the hours
I want to live
To see the sun break through
These days

Under this weather
Under this weather
Such shadows are blossoming
In me

    General CommentIt seems that much of "Wind in the Wires" was inspired by weather. He mentions it a lot.
    This is a very powerful song.

    General Comment"While I was writing the songs over a period of three years, I was putting aside all the songs that had anything to do with the sea or the wind or with birds even. They were all gathering the same kind of idea or metaphor to make this album that was very tied up from beginning to end, but without having songs that repeat themselves. So basically it was just collecting songs and putting them to one side over a period of three years, songs that all had the same feeling to them or the same lyrics in a way. It's almost like a novel, like I had the same thread all the way through."

    General Commenti seriously doubt that Mr. Wolf can write a song that isn't beautiful.

    Wind In The Wires does revolve around the seasons and the emotions that come with it.

    but yes, simply beautiful.

    General CommentI love the bit when the music cuts out and you hear him breathe before it all comes crashing down like the tide.

    This is my current favorite from WITW.
