Thunderstorm
(Erika Margewitsch)

It's been quite a while since you haven't phoned
I'm spending my time playing chess on my own
I should meet some people and celebrate youth,
but all I can do is to wait for you.

The flowers look as if they needed some rain
like hailstones thoughts are spinning round in my brain
the air is sultry, the wind is too warm
I feel tonight there'll be a thunderstorm

There's a hunch in my heart I avoid to admit
the key to the problem just doesn't fit
if you tried to explain things would probably change
but all I can do is to wait for you

The town lies tonight behind a frosted glass
when I look outside I can't see the stars
the air is sultry, the wind is too warm
I feel tonight there'll be a thunderstorm,

Do we still have time to turn the tide?
After the rain will there be some light?
If you leave me alone, all alone,
how can I face, how can I face the storm?

It's been quite a while since you haven't phoned
I'm spending my time playing chess on my own
I should meet some people and celebrate youth,
but all I can do is to wait for you.

The flowers look as if they needed some rain
like hailstones thoughts are spinning round in my brain
the air is sultry, the wind is too warm
I feel tonight there'll be a thunderstorm

Do we still have time to turn the tide?
After the rain will there be some light?
If you leave me alone, all alone,
how can I face, how can I face the storm?
