STORMY LOVE

Waves out on the ocean
Crashin on the shore
A strong wind blows through our love
Whippin up a storm
When I felt it coming
It chilled me to the bone
All I wanna do is go out runnin tonight
Breathing fire into the cold unknown

I wanna run away now I wanna stay
Don't know my own heart anymore
If I could find peace then I would retrace
Every step til the day I was born

I'm gonna rise above this stormy love
Ride it out ride it in
I'm gonna rise above this stormy love
I'm not gonna lose again
I'm gonna rise above this stormy love
Cause it's changin again

I swam out in the ocean of love
To soothe my achin soul
But warm love is not enough
To drown the trouble I hold
I gave away the precious things
That I should call my own
My heart, my soul, my hopes, my dreams
And I'm starin at an empty hole

I recognize the look in these eyes
I've felt this way before
I've gotta face what I can't erase
Or these ghosts will return to my door

I'm gonna rise above this stormy love
Ride it out ride it in
I'm gonna rise above this stormy love
I'm not gonna lose again
I'm gonna rise above this stormy love
Ride it out ride it in
I'm gonna rise above this stormy love

No other way to win
I got to sink or swim
Oh oh stormy love
Could I find love again

I'm gonna rise above this stormy love
Ride it out ride it in
I'm gonna rise above this stormy love
I'm not gonna lose again
I'm gonna rise above this stormy love
Ride it out ride it in
I'm gonna rise above this stormy love
