Stormy Waters

Can’t seem to turn aside
These thoughts are your or mine
I stayed up all night to see the dawn

The air was cold the sky was gray
With shades of light
I stayed up all night to see the dawn

She takes me under stormy waters
Cradles my head as sleep comes on
I’ll drown in her eyes, dream in daylight
And wake again in her twilight

She left to write more silly words
She doesn’t know
I stayed up all night to see the dawn

Awake too long my skin will crawl
It’s serpentine
I stayed up all night to see the dawn

She takes me under stormy waters
Cradles my head as sleep comes on
I’ll drown in her eyes, dream in daylight
And wake again in her twilight

Alarm bells ring it’s nearly time
I’m to alive
I’ve been up all night to see the dawn

Defenses dropped I’m so aware
Of passing time
I stayed up all time to see the dawn

I’ll be submerged in passing tides as senses
Fade into the night
I stayed to see the dawn

She takes me under stormy waters
Cradles my head as sleep comes on
I’ll drown in her eyes, dream in daylight
And wake again in her twilight

Song Notes

“Stormy Waters” was the first song fully written by drummer Rick McMurray and is very much a fan-favourite, and regarded as a lost gem. Rick wrote it for his girlfriend after their first argument. The song had the working title “Ricky IV” when it was demoed.
