Lyrics

I can get up

On the right side of the bed

But that won't stop the rain

From coming down on my head

I can live my life

Playing hide and seek

But when I look inside

It's hard to make believe,

Ah ah

 

'n lately

You seem so far away

I wish I could say something

But I don't know what to say

I can feel your eyes

I don't have to look at you

Boy, discontentment

Is-a-sneakin' through

 

You never really want anything

But what you really need is everything

I'll give you something only life can bring

The calm inside the storm

Love me a little, love me long

Wo yeah

The calm inside the storm

Love me a little, love me long

Don't you know

You should be holding me

But you're all locked inside

Why don't you throw me your keys

I'm like a rockin' ship

On your rollin' sea

You know crash lightnin'

Never frightens me, nah

 

...You never really wanted

But what u really needed

I wanna give u something

mmm... the calm inside the storm

Love me a little, love me long

Love me a little, love me long
