Ride Out The Storm

Liner Notes: 

Week 2 challenge is to give advice

Lyrics: 

V1
it is a wild ride
when the white caps come
and tall waves crash
at their will

you've got to shift gears
pull your sail close in
and allow some
wind to spill

try to keep your keel down low
try to keep it under control
and ride out the storm
yes, ride out the storm

C
embrace the gray clouds
feel the driving rain
hear the howling wind
lean into the pain

embrace the dark skies
watch the lightening flash
listen for the thunder
know all storms will pass

V2
it is a wild ride
when turbulence comes
and changes in wind
make it rough

you've got to shift gears
make a steady climb
or stay and ride
out the bumps

keep your seat belt tight
keep your goals in sight
and ride out the storm
yes, ride out the storm

C
embrace the gray clouds
feel the driving rain
hear the howling wind
lean into the pain

embrace the dark skies
watch the lightening flash
listen for the thunder
know all storms will pass

B
you are the captain
you can learn
from the storm
you can steer
your heart through
adversity
with wisdom
courage and
integrity

C
embrace the gray clouds
feel the driving rain
hear the howling wind
lean into the pain

embrace the dark skies
watch the lightening flash
listen for the thunder
know all storms will pass



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Lovely lyrics, this part "embrace the gray clouds
feel the driving rain
hear the howling wind
lean into the pain" Specially speaks to me with its vivid imagery of being here and now. Great job

great chorus. The advice is supported well by the emotive lyrics. Would enjoy hearing this to music

This is great. I wish I was the musician that could bring these lyrics to life! They are very vivid. I can picture this with a male voice and a lot of instruments. Definitely drums and cymbals. Some kind of wind or brass....maybe a saxophone or flute? Or maybe even using natural sounds of the ocean? Anyway, I hope someone picks this up and plays with it. I'd love to hear the result.
