Distant Thunder Lyrics-Matthews / Music-Matthews/While
Unrecorded

It’s a little beyond the reach of your fingers
But the promise of ‘might have been’ still lingers
But you can’t make her see you when her eyes are closed
You can’t turn her head another way

Chorus
And salt water won’t quench your thirst
Just one drop would make it worse
And this constant, hunger
Grows stronger and stronger
Like distant thunder

So you cover the open wounds with a brave face
She doesn’t see the pain beneath the surface
And just as you can’t take the longing from your heart
You can’t make her feel what isn’t there

Chorus
And salt water won’t quench your thirst
Just one drop would make it worse
And this constant, hunger
Grows stronger and stronger
Like distant thunder

She built a wall to keep the next pain out and her own pain in
She can’t see you standing outside looking in

Chorus
And salt water won’t quench your thirst
Just one drop would make it worse
And this constant, hunger
Grows stronger and stronger
Like distant thunder
Like distant thunder
