lyrics

Chasing papers blowing on the ground
Each step a half second behind
Like the feast that leads the racing greyhound
Still escapes him no matter how hard he tries

He’s running circles as fast as he can
Eyes fixed upon the prize
As his ticket is blown through his hand
The numbers come in
He had the winning dog this time

CHORUS 1:
So what’s it gonna take
Isn’t it your turn to win
Are you gonna break
If your number don’t come in
There must be some mistake
Better count ‘em all again
You beat the odds
But you couldn’t beat the wind,
No you couldn’t beat the wind


Rolling stones up the mountain again
You got yourself a brand new device
There’s a heavy cloud coming up on the wind
It’s gonna rain right through the night
You didn’t count on a storm moving in
When you went past the timberline
So you turn around, look for shelter and sit
With those stones back at your side

CHORUS 2:
So what’s it gonna take
Isn’t it your turn to win
Are you gonna break
When that storm comes rolling in
There must be some mistake
In the forecast again
You beat the odds
But you couldn’t beat the wind
No you couldn’t beat the wind

BRIDGE:
Running as fast as you can
Still you’re farther behind
Then when you started trying so hard
To prove there ‘aint no mountain
That you couldn’t climb

about

Hurricane Chaser Seattle, Washington

Hurricane Chaser returns in 2012 with Sapphires, the Seattle based band’s ambitious second full length release. Eighteen months in the making, this new release sees the band realizing the potential it had shown on 2009‘s The Map Is Not The Territory. The mellower acoustic sound of the band’s earlier work has been replaced by louder guitars, harder hitting drums, and a broader sonic pallette. ... more
