about

I ask the question: what is it to perform? The woman at the centre of this song is a performer. She sings and dances, offering her sensuality to console the 'trouble' she sees in the eyes of others. The storm is not to be feared because her performance is a sanctuary where you can be safe and grow strong again. That's how we change the world.

lyrics

1.
There is a woman I know
Who likes to sit alone and watch the wild winds blow,
And if you’re passing through,
And you’ve got enough money, she’ll undress for you.

Refrain
There’s another storm rising and it’s in our street
There’s trouble in the eyes of everyone we meet.
Rain upon our faces casting tears of sorrow,
My secret space will keep us safe until tomorrow.

2.
There is a girl that I know,
Who listens to me singing when the wild winds blow,
And if you’ve come to stay—
You’ll see her by the river dancing in the rain.

Refrain
There’s another storm rising and it’s in our street
There’s trouble in the eyes of everyone we meet.
Rain upon our faces casting tears of sorrow,
My secret space will keep us safe until tomorrow.

3.
There is a place I can go,
Where trouble can’t undress me when the wild winds blow,
And if you’re passing through,
And you want another lover, I’ll perform for you.

Refrain 2
There’s another storm rising where the sun won’t shine,
I want to break this world apart and make it mine,
And sing you through the darkness to a crystal dawn,
Tomorrow comes, the storm retreats: forever gone.

4.
I want to change this world,
I want to break this world,
I want to change this world,
I want to break this world apart

Refrain 3
I don’t really care if you’re right or wrong.
I just want to stay with you and make you strong,
I don’t really care if you’re right or wrong,
I just want to stay with you and make you strong.

La la la la la lo
La la la la la la lo lo.
