Athlete - Hurricane Lyrics

All the places we grew up,
We're playing hide and seek,
Disappearing wall when you'll sleep

Is it something we gotta get used to?
Is it something we gotta get used to? whoa.

Oh hurricane.

All the millions that we marched with
It never made a sound, never made a sound on your lips.

Is it something we gotta get used to?
But we're not giving up the coastline so easily.

Oh hurricane.
Oh hurricane.

I don't wanna run,
I've been here since I was young
Whoa this city day could be gone within the hour.

Oh hurricane, what you gonna do to us this time?
Oh hurricane, what you gonna do to us this time?

Oh hurricane!

Is it something we gotta get used to?
And it's something we gotta get used to..
And we're not giving up the coastline so easily.

Oh hurricane!

    it's a shame that you don't hear much of them

  96. CapaMaJo ZadoVi

    completely agree with u! i didnt know who they were at all until my friend david who is from chile made me go to their concert in valencia, spain- i downloaded all their songs, they are so great and SOOO underrated!

  97. CapaMaJo ZadoVi

    maybe it´s tokyo from athlete? only coz u said the "no one" bit.... good luck if it´s not so!

  98. CanwllCorfe

    i heard a song that sounded like them and ive been trying to find it out, it sounded like he was saying "no one" quite a bit .but at the middle it sounded like it got quiet and just had synth and then it came back with drums and guitars and then it faded out with a morse code-ish sounding melody
