Transcription

Wind woke me up this morning
Sky was dark and gray
Put on my shirt, get ready for work
Say good morning to another day
Get in my car and turn the radio up
Watch the snow fall from the sky
Hear breaking news from Blacksburg
Please stand by

Hokie, Hokie, Hokie Hi
I Think I know the reason why
Angels frozen tears are falling on my window
Tech, Tech, VPI
For you these tears I cry
Cause the angry wind has come to claim it's souls

Ask myself what can make someone do something like this
I realized it didn’t matter why
Just mattered that they did
I pull over on the side of the road
For the pure shock of it all
And I prayed for the parents that would get that call

Hokie, Hokie, Hokie Hi
I Think I know the reason why
Angels frozen tears are falling on my window
Tech, Tech, VPI
I sat all alone and cried
Cause the angry wind has come to claims it’s souls

Hokie, Hokie, Hokie Hi
I know the reason why
The angels frozen tears are falling on my window

Tech, Tech, VPI
All of the angels cried
Cause the angry wind has come to claim it's souls
