Theme Song Thursday: Every Storm

4 Apr

“When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
******************
Rain, hail, lightning bombarding McKinney right now. I was out having dinner with Miss Eleanor and Karen. My friends Lynne and Linda texted me to see if I was aware and home safe. (FRIENDS!) I got home just minutes before all H-E-double hockey sticks broke loose. Tornado sirens started blaring and I headed for cover. No basements here in Texas, so an interior bathroom and some big pillows are my only security.

I’m writing this blog, watching intermittent CBS weather as the tv signal goes in and out, ready to jump into the bathroom any second. A minute of the storm out my window.

9 pm. Tornado and severe storm warnings over! Good news!

“Every Storm (Runs Out Of Rain)”

Oh so your standing in the middle of the thunder and lightning
I know you’re feeling like you just can’t win, but you’re trying
It’s hard to keep on keepin’ on, when you’re being pushed around
Don’t even know which way is up, you just keep spinning down, ’round, down…

Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain

So hold your head up and tell yourself that there’s something more
And walk out that door,
Go find a new rose, don’t be afraid of the thorns
‘Cause we all have thorns
Just put your feet up to the edge, put your face in the wind
And when you fall back down, keep on rememberin’

Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain

It’s gonna run out of pain
It’s gonna run out of sting
It’s gonna leave you alone
It’s gonna set you free
Set you free

Every storm runs, runs out of rain
Just like every dark night turns into day
Every heartache will fade away
Just like every storm runs, runs out of rain

It’s gonna set you free,
It’s gonna run out of pain,
And set you free
