Storm
September 30, 2017
http://parksandrececommerce.com/JohnStaplesMusic-50-90/JohnStaples-Storm.mp3

storm didn't break us
it didn't know how
we were already falling
apart anyhow
you stood in the window
wrinkled your brow
and talked about
leaving me now

the wind didn't bend us
it couldn't do that
we were way too far gone
things were that bad
I stood in the doorway
you looked away
I cried and
begged you to stay

storms come
storms go
I guess I thought you'd like to know
when the skies
clear again
I hope we'll be friends

today when I saw you
and called out your name
you turned ever so slightly
you still looked the same
I longed to embrace you
but you turned away
the storm in your eyes
was still gray

storms come
storms go
guess I thought you'd like to know
when the skies
clear again
I hope we'll be friends

storms come
storms go
guess I thought you'd like to know
when the skies
clear again
hope we'll be friends

I wanted to hug you

Great take! It's very coherent - the story, the lyrics and the melody and it's nice how the feelings change with that. Funny - mine is in 3/4 meter, too Lol

Beautiful story. I really like how you put this together!

Great song, John. How many people in (stormy) relationships wonder if the next rain cloud might be where they part ways. Love the tender melody. Maybe when the kiddies take a nap, I might have time for a write... or I may have to nap myself. LOL

Solid, as always. A Strong seed for sure. What you've got here already feels complete. The way you have the first 2 verses (the unsung part here), with the similarity of structure, different from the verse you sang. Reading through the verse you used comes off as a bridge, just my 2 cents (not even enough to buy Bazooka Joe anymore).

Aw John! I just love the soothing sound of your voice and guitar. This song is a great write for a skirmish and so complete. The storm as metaphor - that was my interpretation too. You know I'm a fan! Keep doing what you're doing. Smile

Beautiful song! Lot more than a seed Wink Using storm metaphorically really works great.
