The Broderick

The BroderickI have always had a fascination with songs about writing songs, so when our principle songwriter left the band just before we started to write new songs for our album I knew that this would be the perfect opportunity. I had dabbled in lyric writing before but I was extremely nervous about taking charge with the lyrics, so I decided that I would write about just that. At first listen, "Tornado" seems like a bittersweet love song (which in a way is very true), but in reality it is about my struggle with writing lyrics on my own. Unfortunately, Ryan and I have since grown apart, so I feel like this song is my closure.

TORNADO

Keep it in the cold, cold ground
Underneath a dead weight pound
Let it go a tornado out of a no name town
If money is a tragedy what the hell is so funny?
Keep it on an envelope
Words to a song we wrote
A King and Queen in between a Knight who loved her so
Tell me what you got him on
Tell me what you caught him doing 

So I go around thinking now I own this whole town
You’re a charge in the midnight air
I’m calling it a sound
And I go around thinking now that I could do no wrong
You’re a charge in the midnight air
I’m calling you a song

You want me to go home and make it right
All I want to do here is get high

You’re leaving for reasons I don’t even know
All of my time spent on you
Coming and going ain’t exactly what I’m to do

Tell me what you did to me
Tell me what you got from me
All alone I see you dancing and I can’t believe
Got to be a special song keeping you away so long

I go around thinking now I own this whole town
You’re a charge in the midnight air
I’m calling it a sound
And I go around thinking now that I could do no wrong
You’re a charge in the midnight air
I’m calling you a song

You want me to go home and make it right
All I want to do here is get high

You leave me to follow the words that you wrote
All of my time spent on you
Leaving for reasons I don’t even know
I have some words now too
Give it some thought when the thought has become just you
