Marshall Crenshaw — Stormy River lyrics

Your eyes are brown like a stormy river
Your words they twist like a stormy river
You turn to ice like a stormy river in the winter
In the winter, stormy river, stormy river is you

It's a bitter wind that's raging in you
In you so long you no longer hear it
It sweeps across the floor of your spirit
Stormy river, stormy river is you

I'm gonna get far away, get far away fast
'Cause the future looks just like the past
You can't help but leave damage in your midst
I've got no time left in my life for this

Rain comes down like cannonballs
The thunder crashes, the engine stalls
The lightning hits the electric tower
In the midnight hour, stormy river
Stormy river is you

It's a bitter wind that's raging in you
Makes me wonder where you've been to
But I'm wary of asking questions
I don't want to be taught any more lessons
Stormy river, stormy river is you
