lyrics

I was up late last night, I could hear the winds howling
The dust bins were rolling somewhere down the street
And I ask dear Ciara, would she blow away our own storms
Blow for the change we’ve been starved of this year

Blow, blow, blow, blow away the worst that we’ve become
Blow, blow, blow, all that we’ve undone

It’s been brewing for a long time, we are divided
And I’m undecided which side I am on
When I’m lonely I switch on the old shipping forecast
I feel more like a sailor than a man on the run

Blow, blow, blow, blow all the bitterness away
Blow, blow, blow away all of the pain

Ciara she’s blowing, from Fitzroy to Viking
Flags of the nation and those stars she is hiding
Whatever you’re feeling, whatever you have done
Whatever you’re regretted, the wind blows on us all

So blow, blow, blow, blow all our prejudice away
Blow, blow, blow til our bitterness will fade

I’m sad and I’m sick, and I’m numb to emotion
I’m empty and lonely with nowhere to be
I look to the skies and all I see is the darkness
But I know somewhere there are stars to be seen
I feel bruised and battered, lost hope like the river banks
But bring on this storm, for it’s something to feel

Blow, blow, blow, blow away the worst that we’ve become
Blow, blow, blow, all of it away
Blow, blow, blow, blow it all away
