A storm so loud
Broke the windows, shook the house
How the dogs they howled
Barking threats to thunder clouds
How the wind it warned
Board the windows, bolt the doors
And the thunder roared
Lest the warning be ignored

And the sky it screamed
Lightning tearing at its seams
And the evergreens roots were ripped out the ground clean
How it tore the clouds
That its rage had tried to bound
And with a shrieking sound
It carved your name into the ground

Oh, I will scream and shout
Oh, don’t you shut me out

How the waves they grew
Like mountains they seemed to loom
And the wind it blew them over me and you
How those people flew
When the twister chose them to
How it wound and threw up a town that I once knew
But those waves would leave
Just like gums they would recede
And the sun would cleave
Through the storm and set us free
In a broken town
All we’d built had been torn down
Everywhere was found
Your name carved in the ground

Oh, I will scream and shout
Oh, don’t you shut me out

Oh, oh my love
How we rage and how we roar
I’ll put an axe through your front door
If you don’t open it for me
And oh, oh my love
Must we fight for evermore
Can’t we calm ourselves and talk
Calm ourselves and talk
