riding out the hurricane (demo)

Every time I think about all the people I have known

wandering this weary planet trying to find the way back home

some of them are gone now blowin’ in the winds of change

but the rest of us still hang around riding out the hurricane

At twenty-two I barely knew the first thing about living life

trying to find a secret passage looking for the way inside

the world went on without me while I learned from my mistakes

how to work and grind it out riding out the hurricane

the winds were kickin’ up mad and swirling

sometimes the sky can be cruel

but I don’t think that I would have made it

if I hadn’t found you

The first time that I saw your face I knew that I had found a friend

someone who knew how it felt to stay awake until the end

we have shared some good times and we have shared some pain

but we have never given up riding out the hurricane

Another day on planet earth one more chance to get it right

to spin the wheel of consciousness and do our best to stay alive

life is what we make it wear out every day

and don’t forget the style points while you’re

riding out the hurricane
