Storm
Originally by Lifehouse

This song turned out better than I really thought it would when I started it… I recorded this on a particularly bad day. I’d found a girl who seemed to be all that I wanted, and from the very first time we met it was magical. However we both got a strong feeling out of nowhere on the same day that we shouldn’t date. We tried to follow it, but eventually we gave in and dated for a short while, and it was amazing. But we knew we weren’t supposed to. We didn’t know why we weren’t supposed to, but we knew we weren’t supposed to. So we broke it off, and it was really hard.

So! As mentioned before, I recorded this song on a particularly hard day off the aftermath if that. It's all vocal and all me, I made up the harmony in the second half. It's a very mellow song, but I love it a lot. I felt much better after recording it. This was the 12th song I recorded.

Lyrics!
“how long have I
been in this storm ?
so overwhelmed by the ocean's shapeless form…
water's getting harder to tread
with these waves crashing down on my head

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I'd see you
this darkness would turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
and everything will be alright

I know you didn't
bring me out here to drown
so why am I 10 feet under and upside down?
barely surviving has become my purpose
cause I'm so used to living underneath the surface…

if I could just see you
everything will be alright
if I see you
this darkness would turn to light

and I will walk on water
and you will catch me if I fall
and I will get lost into your eyes
and everything will be alright
I know everything, is alright…”
