961. The Next Storm

Frank Turner’s The Next Storm

It’s really hard to listen to this song & not feel some modicum of optimism. It give you the feels that you can weather the toughest of times & still pull through, perseverance, resilience, & positivity.

“We had a difficult winter
We had rough few months
When the storms came in off the coast
It felt like they broke everything on us at once.

It’s easy enough to talk about Blitz spirit,
When you’re not holding the roof up and knee deep in it.
And the pictures and the papers got ruined by the rain,
And we wondered if they’d ever get dry again.

But I don’t want spend the whole of my life indoors,
Laying low, waiting on the next storm.
I don’t want spend the whole of my life inside
I wanna step out, and face the sunshine.”

The Coming Storm

“We lost faith in the omens.
We lost faith in the Gods.
We just ended up clutching at the empty rituals,
Like gamblers clutching long odds.

And I don’t care what the weatherman is saying
Because the last time that I saw him he was on his knees and praying.
And the preachers and the scientists got soaked just the same,
And we wondered if we’d ever get dry again.

But, I don’t want spend the whole of my life indoors,
Laying low, waiting on the next storm.
I don’t want spend the whole of my life inside,
I wanna step out, and face the sunshine.”

Weathering Out The Storm

“So open the shutters, raise up the mast,
Rejoice, rebuild, the storm has passed!
Cast off the crutches, cut off the cast,
Rejoice, rebuild, the storm has passed!
Rejoice, rebuild, the storm has passed!

I’m not gonna live the whole of my life indoors
I’m gonna step out, and face the next storm.”

Frank Turner & His Sleeping Souls

Don’t let COVID keep you inside the storm. Get out, rejoice!! Stay 6 feet away. But this storm, shall too… pass!
