The Stillness

from by Shannon Curtis

lyrics

Storm out of nowhere
Stalled out, pulled over
Where was I going anyway?
Where was I going anyway?

Small voice from he corner
Hollers in the thunder
“Whatever weighs on you can wait
Why don’t you come, sit, and stay?”

Right here, in the downpour
the stillness in an uproar
and it’s calling out, calling out
The water rushes over
I breathe in to come closer
to the stillness now
calling out to me

Late last summer
four leaf clover
Was it a secret wish I made?
Was it me calling for the rain?

Now I’m here, in the downpour
the stillness in an uproar
and it’s calling out, calling out
The water rushes over
I breathe in to come closer
to the stillness now
calling out to me

Been caught upstream
In a trance routine
It’s been waiting for me
The old whisper now
collected in clouds
washes me till I’m clean

Here, in the downpour
the stillness in an uproar
and it’s calling out, calling out
The water rushes over
I breathe in, coming closer
to the stillness now
calling out to me
