lyrics

V E R S E 1
Every time I find the strength
To think about you nowadays,
It hits me like a fresh Katrina wind.
I do my best to stand up straight
And meet the storm head on
But all the while, I only pray the storm will end

P R E - C H O R U S 1
You left my out here spinnin’
With my heart tied in a knot
I’d chase you but this
Hurricane’s the only ride I’ve got

C H O R U S 1
I hide in shame
Then I rage and flame
Like I’m tryin’ to tame a thousand oceans
I’ll curse your name
Then I’ll take the blame.
Your life sails on
While I’m just goin’ through emotions.
I’m just goin’ through emotions.

V E R S E 2
Seems like only yesterday this cyclone
Took our big and easy life
And blew it all to who knows where
But nothin’s really different
I still dance around the truth
And keep my blinders on
And laugh like I don't care

P R E- C H O R U S 1
Though a storm was always brewin’
I pretend the coast was clear
But when the wind begins to blow
Your name’s the only sound I hear

C H O R U S 2
I hide in shame
Then I rage and flame
Like I’m trying to tame a thousand oceans
I’ll curse your name
Then I take the blame.
Your life sails on
While I’m just goin’ through emotions.

B R I D G E
No, I can’t stop reliving that day
When that wave washed our home clear away
As if I could rebuild that sweet life that was killed
And you’d stay

V E R S E 3
You build a house with sticks and stones
Believing it’s enough to stop a
Torrent when it finally hits the shore
Then the clouds come rolling in
The dark descends and suddenly you find
You don’t believe that any more

P R E- C H O R U S 3
I oughtta go and look for you
And leave this wreck behind
But the storm that chased you out of here’s
Still roaring in my mind

C H O R U S 3
I take my aim,
I thrash, I maim,
Like I’m tryin’ to tame a thousand oceans
I staked my claim
But all the same
You’re gone, gone, gone
You’re good and gone
And I’m still goin’ through emotions.
I’m just goin’ through emotions.
I’m just goin’ through emotions.
