Circus Raven In The Storm
Credits: John Gurka & Geoff Bartley
Appears On: Circus
Language: English


I am the latest apparition
Cutting slices in the night
I come through without permission
Moving in and out of human sight

I am the tapping on your shoulder
I am the raven in the storm
I'll take shelter in your rafters
I am the shiver when you're warm

I am the gold in California
I am the well in Mexico
Like the vultures in the valley
I will wait for you to go

I am the gypsy in your pocket
I am the horseman in your dreams
I am the reason dogs are barking
I am the hand that stops the scream

I am the baby's cry that isn't
I am the distant relative
I am the scratching in the ceiling
I am advice you shouldn't give

I am the ghost of a travelling salesman
My foot will be there in your door
Though I can walk through walls and windows
I will knock just like before

I am the darkness in your daughter
I am the spot beneath the skin
I am the scarlet on the pavement
I am the broken heart within

I won't take a train to nowhere
I will not touch just anyone
Ask a stranger why I'm waiting
In the chamber of a gun
