Aftermath

This is a song about survival. No matter what kind of storm comes my way, it won’t knock me down. Maybe if I sing it enough, I’ll believe it.

Lyrics

[verse]
storm moving in
category three
his clouds are dark and heavy
a guarantee for misery

weather man is warning
says girl you better stay inside
every one of my five senses
is telling me to run and hide

[pre-chorus]
but there’s something in the wind
whispering in my ear
sweet, seductive pretty things
takes away all my fears

[chorus]
you’re gonna pass on through
the baddest storm in town
but your sweet hurricane
won’t knock me down

you’re gonna pass on through
destruction in your path
but you’re my sweet hurricane
and I’ll be dancing in your aftermath
dancing in your aftermath

[verse]
your course is already charted
I still won’t get out of your way
guess I’m looking for some danger
to make the pain go away

I stand out in your thunder
let your rain pound down on me
still I sing as the storm blows on
I’ve never felt so free

[pre-chorus]
cause there’s something in the wind
whispering in my ear
sweet, seductive pretty things
took away all my fears

[chorus]
you’re gonna pass on through
the baddest storm in town
but your sweet hurricane
won’t knock me down

you’re gonna pass on through
destruction in your path
but you’re my sweet hurricane

[coda]
I’m tempting fate to fight me
I dare your lightening to strike me
while I soak in your storm like a bath

I’m tempting fate to fight me
I dare your lightening to strike me
while I soak in your storm like a bath

watch me dancing in your aftermath
I am dancing in your aftermath
see me dancing in your aftermath

watch me dancing in your aftermath
I am dancing in your aftermath
see me dancing in your aftermath

and you passed on through
