lyrics

on the last night before the storm,
i had no idea at all
i thought that i saw you laughing
i guess that was all that i saw
this is the first day after the storm
and everything is wet through and through
and if this ain’t gonna be the last time
what will you do?

for your mental health,
exchange your sense of self
(so what? so what?
not much, not much)

i don’t know what to say,
i want you to be okay
(so much, so much,
now what? now what?)

and if you didn’t see me around
i was somewhere safe and warm
i was somewhere you couldn’t get to
taking shelter from the storm
and was that really all i could do?
as if i could live with the doubt
you were treading in the deepest waters,
could i pull you out?

for your mental health,
exchange your sense of self
(so what? so what?
not much, not much)
i don’t know what to say,
i want you to be okay
(so much, so much,
now what? now what?)

here in the eye of the storm you are almost sane
eyes like a rainbow caught up in the twisting rain
if you knew how to swim back to the shoreline then
we could rebuild, it would just be destroyed again
even in the eye of the storm
i couldn’t hold you in the calm
painted a rainbow onto your lips
and a secret under your tongue
the minute that you washed away
felt like a century to overcome
turning the wheel of your ship in a bell jar

for your mental health,
exchange your sense of self
(so what? so what?
not much, so what?)

i don’t know what to say,
i want you to be okay,
(so much, so much, so much)
