Listening to the thunder
My head against your chest
We're comfortable in our silence
But our minds will never rest

Lightning strikes around us
We watch the storm in awe
Your heartbeat leaves me breathless
As the rain begins to fall

Perfect drops against the glass
Your eyes are shining bright
Shadows dance around us
As suspense consumes the night

The wind races on above us
As chaos fills the sky
Barely above a whisper
The night sings in reply

As beautiful and flawless
As a summer storm can be
The world collapses around us
And leaves just you and me

We're finally on our own
At the center of the storm
The walls have tumbled down
But in your arms, it's warm

And we'll be swept away
As the wind picks up speed
But through it all I've realized
You're all I'll ever need
