Every night that goes between
I feel a little less
As you slowly go away from me
This is only another test

Every night you do not come
Your softness fades away
Did I ever really care that much
Is there anything left to say

Every hour of fear I spend
My body tries to cry
Living through each empty night
A deadly calm inside

I haven't felt this way I feel
Since many a year ago
But in those years and the lifetimes past
I did not deal with the road

And I did not deal with you I know
Tho the love has always been
So I search to find an answer there
So I can truly win

Every hour of fear I spend
My body tries to cry
Living through each empty night
A deadly calm inside

So I try to say
Goodbye my friend
I'd like to leave you with something warm
But never have I been a blue calm sea
I have always been a storm
I have always been a storm
Ooh I have always been a storm
I have always been a storm

We were frail

She said
"Everynight he will break your heart"
I should have known from the first
I'd be the broken hearted

But I loved you from the start
Save us...
And not all the prayers in the world -- could save us

    Stevie has said that her songs incorporate numerous relationships. I strongly beleive this song was intended for lindsey, but became both about mick and lindsey. She is working with lindsey in the studio and she is witnessing first hand how much their relationship has changed. They are no longer the feuding couple recording rumours. They have become true "ex's" lindsey is now in a full blown relationship with carol anne, and stevie has been dating mick. Everyday she is seeing and feeling his softness fade. She also has realized that off the road, the reality of her and lindsey's relationship is nothing but professional. Hence the line i did not deal with the road. I do believe she was hurt with mick as well and the same emotions for him were incorporated into her lyrics on storms.
