Those flowers I found you
Were the truest red that I'd ever seen
Till you cut yourself on their thorns
You winced and I kissed you,
And I kissed your palms and we both laughed
So unaware of the gathering storm

It's gonna rain, it's gonna rain, till the levee breaks
A tidal wave of fear and pain carries us away
Another fight into the night until nothing else remains
How do we find harbor from the hurricane?

Now sheltered in shadows,
The quiet song of your breath stirs the dark
Your skin like a rose 'neath my hand
And I can't keep from wondering
Why nothing good could ever stay
Why faith feels like a fistful of sand

It's gonna rain, it's gonna rain, till the levee breaks
A tidal wave of fear and pain carries us away
Another fight into the night until nothing else remains
How do we find harbor from the hurricane?
[x2]

    General CommentThis song at first seems like just another love song, but it has an undercurrent of sadness, darkness, melancholy.

    The roses are the most perfect red - but they cut.

    They laughed - but the storm was gathering.

    Sheltered - but in the shadows.

    It's good - but it can never stay.

    The storm is coming. The happiness and laughter won't last, it will all slip away like a handful of sand. And there is nowhere to go to run from it.

    What a hauntingly beautiful song.

    My InterpretationTo me, this is an extremely poetic song is about romantic relationships, particularly a marriage between 2 people. When we were dating, it seemed as though everything was so perfect, we were destined to be together. We idolized one another; Nothing could ever go wrong. But throughout a relationship, there will be hard times with many ups and downs. Knowing that, what can we do to PROTECT our covenant and stay strong even when there are storms? What can we do to hang on to that love and that commitment that we once made, even when it feels like we have nothing left to give?
