  • Because we're
    Holding our own in a great big storm
    It's a great big storm and we're holding our own
    Holding our own in a great big storm
    It's a great big storm and we're holding our own

    I've been lost in this maze
    Losing love, losing friends
    Losing faith in chemicals
    Afraid one day you'll find me
    Asleep above the stars
    I watch my mother cry
    Father Time is catching up
    I keep the phone by my side
    Afraid she'll wake me up to catch the next flight
    In time to say goodbye

    But sometimes I fall asleep at night
    To the TV light and it sings
    Oh ooo whoa oh
    One day the sun will break into the room

    Because we're holding our own in a great big storm
    And though we're cutting it close
    We won't let go
    Oh no I can't believe
    Everything falling down around me
    But now we're holding our own
    And won't let go
    Holding our own in a great big storm
    It's a great big storm and we're holding our own
    Holding our own in a great big storm
    It's a great big storm and we're holding our own

    Broken hearts broken homes and broken bones
    Secret love let me go
    You know I gotta find my own way
    Through mistakes that I can't change
    Because there's beauty in every sin
    Every single black eye
    Has some blue like the moon just before the sun shines
    No I don't believe in all the things that they preach

    But sometimes I fall asleep at night
    And I just know you're smiling at me
    Oh ooo whoa oh
    One day I'm gonna make this up to you

    Because we're holding our own in a great big storm
    And though we're cutting it close
    We won't let go
    Oh no I can't believe
    Everything falling down around me
    But now we're holding our own
    And won't let go
    Holding our own in a great big storm
    It's a great big storm and we're holding our own
    Holding our own in a great big storm
    It's a great big storm and we're holding our own

    I can't stand myself
    And all the curse words that fall from my mouth
    I can't stand myself
    Or my legs as they run from the ones here to help
    But I just woke up with you next to me
    Some new air to breathe
    And a belief that it's all gonna be alright
    I can't stand myself
    But it's high time that we gave it a try
    And I think I'm gonna finally give myself a new try

    Because I'm holding our own in a great big storm
    And though we're cutting it close
    We won't let go
    Oh no I can't believe
    Everything falling down around me
    But now we're holding our own
    And won't let go Writer/s: EMILE HAYNIE, JEFF BHASKER, NATE RUESS
