Written during a stormin' week in Stinson Beach

lyrics

Fury is the sound,
When the water hits the ground,
Nothing changes when the rains all all night long.

I seen it in her eyes when the car slipped,
On the rain-slick road just north along the coast.
A moment there when we couldn't breath
For all the moisture in the air.
I said a prayer right then that the morning find us home.

Like sailors on a storm-wracked sea we joked,
Lest the panic that we felt caused us to drown.
On either side the water crept up
Like the rising tide.
I said, "Oh dear, shout out when you see the lights of town."

Fury is the sound,
When the water hits the ground,
Nothing changes when the rain falls all night long.

Furious the sound,
When the stormin' sea surrounds.
Nothing changes when the rain falls all night long.

Don't poke your head out lest it get wet.
Shut the windows, draw the drapes and stay indoors.
The storm it seems it had another day yet,
To test the window panes and rattle all the doors.

Fury is the sound...

Every mile that we wentI checked our progress on the map,
I was a pilot with both hands lashed to the wheel.
With the wind up and the rain so thick,
We could hardly see our fingertips,
Until the sun burst through and the road dipped into town.

Fury is the sound...
