III: Riding Out The Storm

see part 1 and part 2 of 3
I met him at the door
I had a million things to say
He looked me in the eye
And then he turned away
But I saw the fiery light
The whole damn burning wreck
"My mother died last night"
Oh god what a bloody mess

  We're riding out the storm
  We're holding up tonight
  We're riding out the storm
  We're hanging on for dear life

A man jumped into the water
And didn't try to swim
I just held my breath
I didn't do a thing
I was there that morning
I sat there at his side
As they carried her by
I could not hold back the tide

  We're riding out the storm
  We're holding up tonight
  We're riding out the storm
  We're hanging on for dear life

   Bridge:
   The fights
   Were all just fighting
   The tears
   Were all just crying
   All this silence
   Just something dying

He knows me
He knows me too well
And I know him
As far as I can tell
What will remain
After all of this rain
Two sorry souls
Giving up and moving on

  I'm riding out the storm
  I'm holding up tonight
  I'm riding out the storm
  I'm hanging on for dear life
