I Want Wind to Blow
The Microphones Lyrics


The thunder clouds broke up
The rain dried up
The lightning let up
The clacking shutters just shut up

There's no black or white
No change in the light
No night, no golden sun
The sound of cars, the smell of bars
The awful feeling of electric heat
Under fluorescent lights, they sacrifice
There's hard feelings, there's pointless waste

I want wind (Ah)
To blow

My clothes off me, sweep me off my feet
Take me out, don't bring me back
Oh, where I can see days passed by me
I have no head to hold in grief
But there's no hope for me, I've been set free
There's no breeze, there's no ship on my sea

The thunderclouds broke up
The rain dried up, the lightning let up
The clacking shutters just shut up

There's no black or white
No change in the light
No night, no golden sun

The sound of cars, the smell of bars
The awful feeling of electric heat
Under fluorescent light, there's sacrifice
There's hard feelings, there's pointless waste

I want wind to blow my clothes off me
Sweep me off my feet, take me up
And bring me back

Where I can see days pass by me
I have no head to hold in grief
But there's no hope for me, I've been set free
There's no breeze, there's no ship on my sea

The thunder clouds broke up,
And the rain dried up,
The lightning let up,
The clacking shutters just shut up.

There's no black or white,
No change in the light,
No night, no golden sun.

The sound of cars,
The smell of bars,
The awful feeling of electric heat.
And the fluorescent lights,

There's sacrifice,
There's hard feelings,
There's pointless waste.

I want wind to blow

My clothes off me,
Sweep me off my feet,
Take me up and bring me back.
Oh, where I can see
Days pass by me,
I have no head to hold in grief.

There's no hope for me,
I've been set free.
There's no breeze,
There's no ship on my sea.

This dude rhymes up with up four times and it's still amazing

oh well

He also uses very subtle internal rhymes so that helps too. Never noticed it myself tho haha

Lol yes it’s spectacular

Jordan Belton

@powerk15 100% agree. The repetitive use of the same word can symbolize the emotional monotony of the period after a breakup!

powerk15

@Jordan Belton For me it resembles the monotony that your life falls into after a breakup. Everything feels the same, you just feel horrible all the time no matter what.

lmao never realized. Its also super forgivable because different images and meanings are combined with "up". That whole stanza also just creates a vivid setting. It sets a familiar stage.
