It really breaks my heart to see a dear old friend
Go down to the worn out place again
Do you know the sound of a closing door?
Have you heard that sound somewhere before?
Do you wonder if she knows you anymore?

I wrapped your love around me like a chain
But I never was afraid that it would die
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you're standing in the eye

Where did you learn to walk? Where did you learn to run
Away from everything you love?
Did you think the bottle would ever ease your pain?
Did you think that love was a foolish game?
Did you find someone else to take the blame?

I wrapped your love around me like a chain
But I never was afraid that it would die
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you're standing in the eye
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you're standing in the eye

I am a sturdy soul and there ain't no shame
In lying down in the bed you made
Can you fight the urge to run for another day?
You might make it further if you learn to stay

I wrapped your love around me like a chain
But I never was afraid that it would die
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you're standing in the eye
You can dance in a hurricane
But only if you're standing in the eye
