The Perfect Storm

I may plead to the heavens

Curse the human form

Look high and low for justice

But ain’t no way to beat

Storm

The Perfect Storm

 

I may look at the bright side

Find rays piercing the gloom

And think for a moment I’m warm

But ain’t no way to beat

The Perfect Storm

 

Walls too high to penetrate

Look up and it’s too late

For I wish I was warned

But ain’t no way to beat

The Perfect Storm

 

Well the skies have opened, feel I’m gonna drown

Getting hard to breathe, my heart starting to pound

Wanna get back to land, where I’m safe and sound

But even there, big cracks in the ground

Head under water, yes I’m going down

 

Sifting for grains of rice

In a bucket of mud

Hoping that will suffice

And plug the coming flood

But in the end I’m torn

And ain’t no way to stop

The Perfect Storm

 

Gotta take a little break

Gulp for some air

What’s it gonna take?

No, no life just ain’t fair

God, I hate to mourn

And ain’t no way to stop

The Perfect Storm

 

Wind tossing me asunder

Holding on for dear life

Bracing for the thunder

And the coming strife

But my life raft ain’t got no horn

And ain’t no way to stop

The Perfect Storm

 

Well the skies have opened, feel I’m gonna drown

Getting hard to breathe, my heart starting to pound

Wanna get back to land, where I’m safe and sound

But even there, big cracks in the ground

Head under water, yes I’m going down

 

Darkness covers me

No rescue in sight

God speaks to me

Says I will be alright

 

Yes I will be alright

I’m beginning to believe

As The Perfect Storm

Gathers to leave

 

As the clouds begin to dissipate

I step into the light

Something I didn’t anticipate

Yet now it is in sight

Yes, I will be alright

I will be alright

 

Couldn’t see it over the swelling waves

Tryin’ hard as I might

But with time I learn what saves

And it’s gonna be alright

Yes, everything will be alright
