//**Only the wind**// is a cover song by LorD and Master, originally by Pet Shop Boys from their album //Behaviour//. This stripped-down piano-and-vocal version is played and recorded live. The song is about domestic violence.
* It's only the wind * Blowing litter all around * Just a little wind * And the trees are falling down
* There's nobody crying * That was yesterday * Inside we're all smiling * And everything's okay
* It's only the wind * Blowing cans along the street * Someone's dustbin lid * Playing havoc with the peace
* There's nobody hiding * Behind the locked door * And no-one's been lying *'cause we don't lie any more
* It's only the wind * How it takes you by surprise * Suddenly it begins * But then before you know, it dies
* My hands are not shaking * I don't touch a drop * You must be mistaken * I know when to stop
* When life is calmer * I have no doubt * No angry drama * A storm * Blows itself out
* It's only the wind * They say it's getting worse * The trouble that it brings * Haunts us like a curse
* My nerves are all jangled * But I'm pulling through * I hope I can handle * What I have to do
* When life is calmer * I have no doubt * No angry drama * A storm * Blows itself out * A storm * Blows itself out
* I'm sorry
* Appears on //[[Obviously]]//.
