IN THE MEANTIME

into the ark i go
when the floods are raging high
waiting for the rainbow
promised to the sky
i got hit by a hidden love
been crying for prophecy
open window for Noah's dove
she'll have a branch from an olive tree
she'll have a branch from an olive tree

in the meantime, i'll be melting
like a piece of ice in a water glass
and i don't mind, cause i'll be falling
like a tired leaf to the autumn grass

who told this heart to beat
i only want to know
who rains this hail and sleet
who makes angels in the snow
what's good about a four leaf clover
what's good about a chosen one
i think it might be over
i think it's just begun
i think it's just begun

in the meantime, i'll go crazy
but at least i'll know it, at least i'll smile
and i don't mind, cause i'll be dancing
down the road, for another mile

open mouth i have to lock it
when my head is finally silent
hold the world inside my pockets
bring calm to my violence
when the thunder clouds hang heavy
and the lightning gives a smile
i think i might be ready
i think it'll be a while
i think it'll be a while

in the meantime, i'll be flying
like Noah's dove, looking for land
and i don't mind, cause it stopped raining
and i believe in the rainbow falling into my hands
