Melodic Monday: “Hurricane”

This week we are going a little softer. It’s a song that exposes those hidden worries and brings them to the surface. I find that most of these songs are relatable, at least for me, and it helps to guide my own thoughts to a different place.

Hurricane” by MS MR:

 

“Didn’t know what this would be
But I knew I didn’t see
What you thought
You saw in me

I jumped the gun
So sure you’d split and run
Ready for the worst
Before the damage was done

The storm never came
Or it never was
Didn’t know getting lost in the blue
It meant I wound up losing you

Welcome to the inner workings of my mind
So dark and foul I can’t disguise
Can’t disguise
Nights like this
I become afraid
Of the darkness in my heart
Hurricane

What’s wrong with me
Why not understand and see
I never saw
What you saw in me

Keep my eyes open
My lips sealed
My heart closed
And my ears peeled

Welcome to the inner workings of my mind
So dark and foul I can’t disguise
Can’t disguise
Nights like this I become afraid
Of the darkness in my heart
Hurricane

Make ash and leave the dust behind
Lady diamond in the sky
Wild light
Glowing bright
To guide me
When I fall
I fall on tragedy

Welcome to the inner workings of my mind
So dark and foul I can’t disguise
Can’t disguise
Nights like this I become afraid
Of the darkness in my heart
Hurricane”

I think we have all had battles with our inner demons, especially the ones that make up worlds that aren’t really there. Focusing on problems that only exist in our darkness. But we need to wrestle with these thoughts in order to overcome our own anxieties.

Until next Monday!
