I am the terrible tsunami
The one that makes you cry
You do not know when I come
And faint when you realise

I am the one that haunts your dreams
The one that gives you nightmares
You tremble when I come
Hoping I will not sweep you away

You try to outrun me
But you never will
I am powerful and will sweep you elsewhere

I am as silent as a mouse
Very few will see me
They try to hide away
But some are just blind
And they are my prey

So, if you see the sea floor
Or see the water receding
You might want to run
Or I will gobble you all up!
