The Airborne Toxic Event The Storm Lyrics

Before it took you away

I tried to think of something I could say

I watched the shadows in the hall

How they danced with the light and the white on the walls

Your face in these pictures looks like a poem

Your eyes lit up like a river stone

Your body so much like a blanket thrown

On a warm bed at night, like a house in a storm

Then you walk right through the doorway

You tell me you’re here to stay

The worst is gone and by God I love

If you’d been here this way

I surprise myself sometimes

The way the days unfold and this road unwinds

You tell me you see it too

And the miles seem like inches when I think of you

Its been 25 day since I’ve been gone

25 weeks since I’ve seen my home

I spent 25 months chasing this song

and all of this time I’ve been alone

Then you walk right through the doorway

You tell me your here to stay

The worst is gone and by God I love

If you’d been here this way

And you knew it all along

I wasn’t happy all along

and your body all I wanted

let me to just come home

Then you walk right through the doorway

You tell me you’re here to stay

The worst is gone and by God I love

If you’d been here this way

And I only just learned how to stand like a man

I’ve got 25 years of running instead

How could I see the ground at my feet

The truth is to me that I was caught in the storm

That I wasn’t alone
