Lyrics for Dreaming Wild Tornadoes

How can I tell my father
How can I tell my mother
You left me for another
And I am all alone

Oh they speak of you
Like you were divine
Oh they speak of you
Like you still were mine

Quivering river
Are your waters ashore
Tears are flowing from my eyelids
As a sign of wanting more
Quivering river
Do you wash me away
Melting down my broken spirit
Though I tried to I just couldn't
Make you stay

I'm dreaming wild tornadoes
In dreams I die, I hate those
I realize I'm not close
To waking up again

'Cause I speak of you
Like you were divine
Yeah I speak of you
Like you still were mine

Quivering river
Are your waters ashore
Tears are flowing from my eyelids
As a sign of wanting more
Quivering river
Do you wash me away
Melting down my broken spirit
Though I tried to I just couldn't
Make you stay

Still I am longing for
Prairie winds, freedom and much more
Still I am counting on
Someone to catch me when I fall

Still I am longing for
Prairie winds, freedom and much more
Still I am counting on
Someone to catch me when I fall

Quivering river
Are your waters ashore
Tears are flowing from my eyelids
As a sign of wanting more
Quivering river
Do you wash me away
Melting down my broken spirit
Though I tried to I just couldn't
Though I meant to, simply failed to
Make you stay
