Are You The Martyr?

Are You The Martyr?


Well I’m not the martyr

I know you think that’s what I’m trying to do

But honey I just can’t

Be the one who is lying to you

 

And I’m not the person

Who knows what answer is the best

But I’ll try and I’ll fight

To give you that one last chance you need

 

I can see it in the clouds

It’s written plain as day

The sun shines on it but you still stay

And when the thunder roars

I’ll wish I was a god

I could steal you away

Crush the storm, light the fire

That’s not gonna happen, no not today

Oh, Oh I’m not the martyr

Just the thunder in the bay

 

Well I’m not the letter

That comes to you in black and white

But I’ll read it to you

Sing these words to you tonight-I- ight

 

I might be the bearer

Of the bad news that’s a coming

But don’t kill the messenger

Don’t hurt the one who’s been with you all your life

 

I can see it in the clouds

It’s written plain as day

The sun shines on it but you still stay

And when the thunder roars

I’ll wish I was a god

I could steal you away

Crush the storm, light the fire

That’s not gonna happen, no not today

Oh, Oh I’m not the martyr

Just the thunder in the bay

 

I’ve worked so hard to warn you

But I fear I’m growing old

But you keep wishing on what you hope

If I could give you a gift

I’d give you an eagle’s eyes

And a gentle understanding… of the choice left tonight

 

I can see it in the clouds

It’s written plain as day

The sun shines on it but you still stay

And when the thunder roars

I’ll wish I was a god

I could steal you away

Crush the storm, light the fire

That’s not gonna happen, no not today

Oh, Oh I’m not the martyr

Just the thunder

Rolling in

On the bay

 

I’m just the thunder

Rolling in

 

I can see it in the clouds

It’s written plain as day

Oh, Oh I’m not the martyr

Oh, Oh I’m not the martyr

I’m just the thunder

Rolling in

On the bay
