lyrics

IT COMES VISITING

It comes visiting, it comes visiting
And it tears through your mind like a storm
And it’s critical, yes, it’s critical
That you’re rescued and taken from harm
But the blame is there and your name is there
And the boxes are ticking against you
It comes visiting, it comes visiting
And there’s nothing to do or to say

It comes calling,it comes calling
And it sneaks up and hits from behind
And you’re falling, you’re just falling
And the stairs are too heavy to climb
And you dare not move ‘cos it can’t be proved
And it happened a long time ago
It comes calling, it comes calling
I don’t tell ‘cos I already know


It comes back to me, it comes back to me
Like a penny that’s bad and not worth it
And it laughs at me, how it laughs at me
Still blocking the way and I curse it
Try to get away, break the chains today
Just a step away I could be different
It comes back to me, it comes back to me
And I live in the ruins alone

It comes under me, it comes under me
Like an earthquake is shaking me bones
And I’m wondering, I’m left wondering
Is there anywhere I could call home
When the fear is walls and you lose it all
And because you’re a woman they use it
It comes under me, it comes under me
Like a wave washing my legs away

It comes over me, it comes over me
Like a cloud shadows over the land
it’s all over me, it’s all over me
and I’m running as fast as I can
but it calls me back, calls the kettle black
and I’m empty and dead in the water
it comes over me, it’s all over me
it comes over me, it’s all over me
and a shadow rests over my heart
