Nate Ruess – Great Big Storm lyrics

[Intro]
Because we’re
Holding our own in a great big storm
It’s a great big storm and we’re holding our own
Holding our own in a great big storm
It’s a great big storm and we’re holding our own

[Verse 1]
I’ve been lost in this maze
Losing love, losing friends
Losing faith in chemicals
Afraid one day you’ll find me
Asleep above the stars
I watch my mother cry
Father Time is catching up
I keep the phone by my side
Afraid she’ll wake me up to catch the next flight
In time to say goodbye

[Pre-Chorus]
But sometimes I fall asleep at night
To the TV light and it sings
Oh ooo whoa oh
One day the sun will break into the room

[Chorus]
Because we’re holding our own in a great big storm
And though we’re cutting it close
We won’t let go
Oh no I can’t believe
Everything falling down around me
But now we’re holding our own
And won’t let go
Holding our own in a great big storm
It’s a great big storm and we’re holding our own
Holding our own in a great big storm
It’s a great big storm and we’re holding our own

[Verse 2]
Broken hearts broken homes and broken bones
Secret love let me go
You know I gotta find my own way
Through mistakes that I can’t change
Because there’s beauty in every sin
Every single black eye
Has some blue like the moon just before the sun shines
No I don’t believe in all the things that they preach

[Pre-Chorus]
But sometimes I fall asleep at night
And I just know you’re smiling at me
Oh ooo whoa oh
One day I’m gonna make this up to you

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
I can’t stand myself
And all the curse words that fall from my mouth
I can’t stand myself
Or my legs as they run from the ones here to help
But I just woke up with you next to me
Some new air to breathe
And a belief that it’s all gonna be alright
I can’t stand myself
But it’s high time that we gave it a try
And I think I’m gonna finally give myself a new try

[Chorus]
