How long have I
Been in this storm
So overwhelmed by the ocean's shapeless form
Water's getting harder to tread
With these waves crashing over my head

If I could just see you
Everything will be alright
If I'd see you
This darkness will turn to light

And I will walk on water
And you will catch me if I fall
And I will get lost into your eyes
I know everything will be alright
I know everything is alright

I know you didn't
Bring me out here to drown
So why am I 10 feet under and upside down
Barely surviving has become my purpose
Cause I'm so used to living underneath the surface

If I could just see you
Everything will be alright
If I'd see you
This darkness will turn to light

And I will walk on water
And you will catch me if I fall
And I will get lost into your eyes
I know everything will be alright

And I will walk on water
And you will catch me if I fall
And I will get lost into your eyes
I know everything will be alright
I know everything is alright

Everything's alright

Yea

Everything's alright

    Life is tough. Twist and turns, ups and downs. To me, this song is about trying to cope. Because when i hear this song it reminds me every time about my ex. I was going through a rough time, i still am. I wish we were together again. I know he didn't mean to hurt me, but i wish he'd be here, to make this tough time feel so much easier, to make me forget if just for a while. If he were here with me, if i could just see him, i would be able to cope. I would be able to feel like "everything will be alright"...

    I believe that the meaning behind storm is based on a religious meaning. I think it means that jesus is always pulling us out of our own storms in life and if we focus our eyes on jesus then everything will be alright.
