“Red Sky”

—chorus—

If you take my hand and/

Just let it all out/

You’ll see the calm after the storm/

And a blue sky/

You won’t need this anymore/

Although it’s metaphor/

I speak the truth/

I saw it in you/

—verses—

The snow reminds me of summer/

When you left without a sound/

So cold without you around/

Then it was dreadfully sunny/

Like back when stupid wasn’t funny/

So good ’cause I was dumber/

—chorus—

Thinking about that night I saved your life/

With a simple song, I know/

Good thing you had a piano/

Under the moon, on the telephone/

And in the end a dialtone/

Comforted you more than a knife/

—chorus—

The sky glowed red in the morning/

I took warning/

My poor lamb is what I saw/

All cut up in the lion’s jaw/

Pale against the crimson sky/

So many lies, I think that’s why/

You felt you had no choice but fly away/

—modified chorus—

I reached for you hand and/

Just let it all out/

Too late to calm the storm/

And the red sky/

You won’t need this anymore/

Although it’s metaphor/

I see the sky is torn/

The finale of your storm/
