Lyrics

Inherit the wind

Written By: Nik Everett

Well you feel like your whole soul's been laid across the floor
And once again you just can't out of that door
'Cause you're waiting for the love
But don't you know baby all the rain's gonna fall from above

Your parents say they understand but what a joke
with miles of smiles
they watch you hanging on your rope
nothing hurts like on blood on blood
but look out baby
here comes the flood
CHORUS
Take this giant cage surrounding me
Lock away the heartache
hide the key
Don't focus on the darkness
instead of the love within
'cause if you do then you might Inherit the wind.

I waited up all night girl
just to talk to you
and once again you proved to me
I might never get close to you
'Cause you're waiting for the bliss
Don't you know baby
all your problems
can't be solved with a kiss

CHORUS
