Thunder - behind the lyrics



Hello! Isabelle here. Just wanted to share a little bit about our song Thunder from the lyrical perspective. 

The lyrics for Thunder were born from an idea sparked at my studio at the shop, the hum of the sewing machine plain to hear in the backdrop of my original voice memo.


“I’m feeling you, it’s coming through like thunder”


I've often found that as I sew or iron away my mind can drift off into analyzing conversations and moments that have been caught in my head. Last summer we were in the process of moving from our home of 24 years and I realize that I was kind of saying goodbye to that place. It had always been such a safe, protective and creative space. It was like losing a friend.






The same as with friendship there is an ebb and flow as we need it and it’s okay when things change, in fact it’s completely natural. As we walk away from an old home I feel no pain because I believe in the new adventure and all that it holds.


The cool thing is that I played the nugget of a voice memo to Mark, he immediately ran downstairs in the old house and played the rest of the music to accompany it! Everything happened without effort and  so naturally.



Change can be scary but with an open mind and trust it can also be quite lovely.
Cheers!

Thunder by Combine the Victorious 

 

I'm feeling you, it's coming through like thunder

like thunder

I'm feeling you, it's coming through like thunder


I may be small but my soul runs deeper

When finding the joy can't dismiss these emotions

process the words, energy's given

 

I'm feeling you, it's coming through like thunder

like thunder


I may be small but my soul runs deeper

When finding the joy can't dismiss these emotions

process the words, energy's given

You're pushing my buttons

all is forgiven

 

As I walk away I feel no pain because I believe in you.
