Lyrics

 * 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
