The Fury And The Sound

from by Andrew Howie

lyrics

Your narrow street
Tenement wall
Your sandstone heart
That doesn’t fool me at all

Your darkened close
Cracks in the stair
Your burned out light
This is the armour you wear

Oh let me show what I’ve found
The fury and the sound
Tear your defences down

Your measured love
This counted cost
Your fearing heart
Can still redeem what is lost

Oh let me show you what I’ve found
The fury and the sound
Tear your defences down
Oh letting go is not defeat
Give up on your retreat
The place where two worlds meet

Take a breath
Take my hand
A few small steps
Into this no man’s land

Oh shake the dust off from your feet
Give up on your retreat
The place where two worlds meet
Oh let me show you what I’ve found
The fury and the sound
Tear your defences down
