Nate Ruess Great Big Storm

Because we’re

[x2:]

Holding our own in a great big storm

It’s a great big storm and we’re holding our own

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

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

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

[x2:]

Holding our own in a great big storm

It’s a great big storm and we’re holding our own

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

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

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

[x2:]

Holding our own in a great big storm

It’s a great big storm and we’re holding our own

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

Because I’m holding my own in this great big storm

And though I’m cutting it close

Oh 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

No we won’t let go

No we won’t let go, oh no
