Grab your keys from the wall
Ignite the engine
Drive me down the sandy roads by the beach town homes
Where there are fiery morning clouds and starlit nights on top of the horizon line
Where the girls float
They have the taste of a butterfly

Ohhh ohhh how are you?
Those urban shoes are styling
Gum on the bottom
Freshness on top
Anchor down
The wicked wind of the east has brought in a storm and swallowed the streets
Don’t let it get the best
Don’t let it get you, down

Lightning crashes a branch on top of a US Postal van
Letters fly home
Young Kentucky girls cry why
Words don’t reach a single eye
They got their stamps
Worth the sense, everyone feels like a solitaire
Forever, forever
Tattoos have you intimidated
Handshakes then knuckles break
Take it by the blade
It won’t kill you
Play a song to sleep to

The winds will stalk the times
And blow everything for a change
People move on like the clouds
Butterflies bury back inside their cocoons
You don’t have to
Alright I’ll be around
Waiting on you
If we’re like doves
The wicked winds of the east
Won’t be enough
It’ll be soon
They can carry you

Soooooon, soooooon
The wicked winds of the east
Will fly in and carry you
Sails open for the warm
Open for the cold
The wicked winds are full
They’ll carry you, they’ll carry you

Walking over colored glass bottles
Shattered, necks are broken
The words slice through the lips
Wind chills the teeth
The bridges shake
Bricks echo to the ground
Not even pigeons can call this their town
They’re trying to fly east
It’s taking their entire lives
Growing stronger over time
Broken wings
Elbow to elbow the winds blow
Two doves continue to try, they’ll make it

We can barely move
The coasts aren’t empty
The seas are full of sails
The wicked winds of the east
Blowing everything around
Slowing everything down
All have a wicked time
All have a wicked time
A wicked time
Not making it back around
I do not care
I could live my life battling
The wicked winds of the east
My piece of mind
It lies with you
Doves will make it
The winds will make you, make me
They won’t kill you or me
Just got to try

Soooooon, soooooon
The wicked winds of the east
Will fly in and carry you
Sails open for the warm
Open for the cold
The wicked winds are full
They’ll carry you, they’ll carry you

The earth has paused
Life spins off axis
No one’s home
The door bell echoes
Now as a phone
The answering machine
Took a couple tries and it still doesn’t sound right
It’s long and detailed but the tone doesn’t match the memory
Sorry, you don’t need to call back
In case, I’ll be close to home
The sun is out and so are the clouds
It’s crowded in the sky
As is the ground
You better call clear and loud
If it’s ever time to
We’ll make it

It’s crowded in the sky
As is the ground
The wicked winds of the east
Continue to blow
And we’ll make it
We’ll make it
