about

So...here's the thing about "Storms:" I honestly can't remember what it was about, exactly. After reading through the lyrics, I think the storms metaphor was referencing habitual sins or addictions, or something like that. These lyrics were never quite finished, and I can look back and see where I was going with them, but it just never really got to the "completed thought/ this makes sense" stage.

I got a text today from Jaime about how he'd forgotten how much he loved this song. Jaime was our rock on the road. No matter what happened, he approached every situation with a level head and always tried to see through to the heart of the matter. I know that we're all proud to call him a friend. When we toured with Disciple back in 2007, I believe that someone from one of the other bands made the comment that Jaime "smelled like Jesus." At first, we had no idea what that meant, because who knows how many baths they used to take back in NT times in Jerusalem...but then whomever it was explained that it was the air that Jaime brought with him into the room, an air of humility and the way that he could see into someone's heart and strike up a conversation with them. Much like how smoke will hang on your clothes after being in a smoky bar or airport lounge, the presence of Jesus was always just on him. He came to Nashville to hang just the other day....it's still there.

A funny side note about this song, my wife always thought the chorus said:
"Oh, I never saw it coming, and no, I never really wanted to."
That's such a better way of putting it.
That's about the 1,890,566th example of how she's so much smarter than me.
That's what I get for "marrying up."

-Matt

lyrics

You always wanted it, but when you're saying that...
I wonder if you mean the words you say?
All along you knew what was wrong, yet ignored the winds so strong,
and storms can turn a heart to stone.

Oh, you'll never give it up, and I,
I know you really wanted to.
It's sinking with you.

I see you giving in to all the pain and then
you forget that everyone will go through this.
Another drink for hope to borrow, but
you lose your breath when drowning sorrows.
And storms will sink a heart of stone.

Oh, you'll never give it up, and I,
I know you really wanted to.
It's sinking with you.

Sinking deeper all the while,
a prayer for the child torn away
from the hope she left behind.

I know you really wanted to.

Oh, you'll never give it up, and I,
I know you really wanted to.
It's sinking with you.

(Never said goodbye, and how I wish you never had to.)
