Heavy Weather Lyrics

Heavy Weather

Words and music by Christopher Kent

Darkness on the edge of the sky, wind blowing cold and deep
Reaching out for shelter in a restless sleep
Earthquake lights, Saint Elmo’s fire, fever in the sky
Wheel of fortune gone full circle
Mother Earth’s reply

How did it all begin?
Looks like heavy weather’s rolling in

Everybody’s worried ‘bout the next thing to occur
Reaching our for safety in the way things were
But there is no intermission, and everything’s unreal
Too many hungry children waiting for a meal

How did it all begin?
Looks like heavy weather’s rolling in

We’ve got to make it through this darkness
Not give in to doubt and fear
We’ve got to trust that there’s a reason
And from the ashes of the old, something better will appear

Things that seemed immovable are crumbling into clay
We’re finding out we should not borrow more than we can pay
Now I look outside my window—
I could swear it’s judgment day

How did it all begin?
Looks like heavy weather’s rolling in
