In the lyrics for the song, The Power of Love, what exactly does it mean when it says that the whispers in the morning are "rolling by like thunder"? Would someone be able to shed some light?

The Power of Love lyrics

The whispers in the morning

Of lovers sleeping tight
Are rolling by like thunder now
As I look in your eyes

    He's showing a contrast between how love feels when it is personal. First he observes the love of others ('lovers sleeping tight') and their expressions of love are 'whispers in the morning'. However, when love becomes something which affects him personally ('as I look into your eyes') those 'whispers' are now 'rolling by like thunder', that is they have become tremendous in volume because that's the power of love (when it's personally experienced).
