Dismantled notes just might destruct me tonight
You're right, I just might explode in this silver moonlight
You're at the piano, your hands are on the key
Lifting and resting, you make such beautiful sounds
I lift the hair from your neck
The trees sway in the wind and we will dance beneath them

So what about this defiant afternoon gloom
With its lack of light and shadow-filled rooms
I'm praying for a thunderstorm
Something to keep me inside

The notes bounce around in my light head
I'm floating high above your house
Your tears have flooded it out
If only you could see the angel I see, all dressed in white
The white dress, the white wings, and the white air disturbed

So what about this defiant afternoon gloom
With its lack of light and shadow-filled rooms
I'm praying for a thunderstorm
Something to keep me inside

When you sing, it haunts me like a monster from my dreams
Cause I know it's the kind that does the breaking
All I see is white, and it burns
Oh sweet notes, take me away

    Dismantled notes just might destruct me tonight
    You're right, I just might explode in this silver moonlight
    You're at the piano, your hands are on the keys
    Lifting and resting, you make such beautiful sounds
    I lift the hair from your neck
    The trees sway in the wind and we will dance beneath them

    So what about this defiant afternoon gloom
    With its lack of light and shadow-filled rooms
    I'm praying for a thunderstorm
    Something to keep me inside

    The notes bounce around in my light head
    I'm floating high above your house
    Your tears have flooded it out
    If only you could see the angel I see, all dressed in white
    The white dress, the white wings, and the white air disturbed

    So what about this defiant afternoon gloom
    With its lack of light and shadow-filled rooms

    When you sing, it haunts me like a monster from my dreams
    Cause I know it's the kind that does the breaking
    All I see is white, and it burns
    Oh sweet notes, take me away

    General CommentTrying to take a break from life and fighting gilt is what this song is about. He is "praying for a thunderstorm" because he dosn't want to go back into the real world and face his problems again.
