about

The original demo version of this storm-inspired love song, written and recorded in NYC during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, November 2012. Featuring Phil Andrews on horns.

lyrics

Stay with me
I’ll be your port in a storm
I’ll keep you safe baby
Just keep me warm

Tempest will rage
Gale wind will blow
But we'll batten the hatches
We'll be here tomorrow

Bad weather’s coming
We'd best stay inside
Take shelter here
Till the waters subside

Tempest will rage
Gale wind will blow
But we'll batten the hatches
We'll be here tomorrow

And if the rain falls and the flood waters rise
We will grow fins like fish in a wet paradise
And when the sky clears we’ll crawl out of the deep
And we’ll let evolution transform us into you and me

Sun’s gonna shine again
Just wait and see
High water line
Just an old memory

Tempest will rage
Gale wind will blow
But we'll batten the hatches
We'll be here tomorrow
