Lin-Manuel Miranda feat. Original Broadway Cast of Hamilton - Hurricane Lyrics | FAST DOWNLOAD

Hurricane

In the eye of a hurricane there is quiet
For just a moment
A yellow skyWhen I was seventeen, a hurricane destroyed my town
I didn`t drown, I couldn`t seem to die

I wrote my way out
Wrote everything down far as I could see
I wrote my way out
I looked up and the town had its eyes on me

They passed a plate around
And total strangers
Moved to kindness by my story
Raised enough for me to book passage on a ship
That was New York bound

I wrote my way out of hell
I wrote my way to revolution
I was louder than the crack in the bell
I wrote Eliza love letters until she fell
I wrote about The Constitution and defended it well

And in the face of ignorance and resistance
I wrote financial systems into existence
And when my prayers to God were met with indifference
I picked up a pen, I wrote my own deliverance

In the eye of a hurricane there is quiet
For just a moment
A yellow sky
I was twelve when my mother died
She was holding me
We were sick, and she was holding me
I couldn`t seem to die

Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it
I`ll write my way out (Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)
Write ev`rything down, far as I can see (Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)
(History has its eyes on you)
I`ll write my way out
Overwhelm them with honesty
This is the eye of the hurricane
This is the only way I can protect my legacy
Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, wait
