"Hurricane" as written by and Timothy Thompson....
I will never tell you
I'd rather sew up my mouth
I'd choke sooner than ever say it out loud
Figure it out
I still wish you were here

I am breaking down from breaking in
Give me the wings to fly
Don't you see me trying to ride out this hurricane?

It's impossible for what's left of this to be saved
And it's sinking in that my being here's a mistake
Erase
Forget I was here

Don't you see me trying?
I'm slit now I'm sliding
Floating, flying
I'm ready for my fade
I will wait for you here because you are all I know

    General CommentLike the end verse most, even the lyrics read out in a rhyme that sounds just right to hear. This song shows a building of greater courage perhaps, more assertive than the others also, yet still the same hint of dispair at loss slipped in there.

    General CommentI think this song is beautiful.
    It reminds me of a guy that I don't have the courage to call.

    General CommentI think this is about someone you once had the ability and right to touch and care for that left the relationship. You still mourn the relationship and wish the person was still around, but cannot make yourself say the words to them or anyone else. Possible embarrassment at still lingering in the same locations, social circles, or even just being there for the person.

    General CommentI love this song, it's beautiful.
    I love the way she half screams and half sings the word 'breaking' in the chorus and the way she sings the last two lines in the last verse.

    Yeah, I agree with pallidity. I think it's about a girl who used to be with a guy.
    "I'd rather sew up my mouth
    I'd choke sooner than ever say it out loud"
    She doesn't want to tell him though because she knows that they can't reconcile e.g: "It's impossible for what's left of this to be saved"
