Lie here ‘till your world stops spinning round;
Lie near me ‘till the birds start singing out
Oh come show what it is to be warm
Be my shelter and I’ll be your storm.

Oh come; lie down ‘till the four winds cease to blow;
Lie here full of rivers that you know
And I’ll make your bones shake
The sweat we take off hearts still battered and worn
Be my shelter and I’ll be your storm

And we'll show the fire,
Yeah we'll show the fire how to burn
Yeah we'll show the fire,
We'll show the fire how to burn
We’ll show the fire,
We'll show the fire how to burn
Yeah we'll show the fire,
We'll show the fire how to burn

I don't know, I don't know where you came from
Honey God's been smiling;
I don't know, I don't know where the rain's gone
But it's been a while been a while now
I don't know, I don't know where you came from
Honey God's been, God’s been smiling;
I don't know, I don't know where the rain's gone
But it's been a while been a while, been a while
Been a while now
Yeah I don't know, I don't know where you came from
Honey God's been, God’s been smiling down
I don't know, I don't know where the rain's gone
But it's been a while been a while, been a while
It’s been a while, been a while now

    My InterpretationFor me, this is about wanting everything to be OK again and not giving up on someone. Learning to trust again, but taking the time together (lie down) to put the past in the past and working together to build a better, happy future (when the birds will sing again).

    "Come, show what it is to be warm:
    Be my shelter and i'll be your storm." - you have to love with all your heart even against the storm of someone's hurt one.

    "We'll show the fire how to burn" - fire destroys everything... but not this love.

    "I don't know, i don't know where you came from," - like an angel, so pure and committed to healing the wounds.

    "I don't know, I don't know where the rain's gone" - the tears are slowly fading.
