Written after the storm, early 2006

lyrics

I left my home and drove all night
I found a bed and closed my eyes
and when I woke up my life was changed
after the storm took it away

all my things were left to rot
all my work was in the mud
all my friends scattered without a trace
after the storm took them away

ah
ah

I wandered far away from home
I put a mattress on the floor
I sat alone most every day
after the storm took me away

ah
ah

how do you buy things you can’t replace
how do you run when you can’t escape
how do you build up the wall again
after the storm takes it away

ah
ah
