Calm Before The Storm

  • My father used to work the seam
    Far below the ground
    Digging for the coal to melt the steel
    But now he stands a lonely man
    Idle and forlorn
    Just like the iron wheels
    That took him down

    I can't stop my tears from falling
    Falling down like rain
    Your words of wisdom
    Call to me
    I hang my head in shame
    We're living in the calm before the storm
    We're living in the calm before the storm

    He used to be the fisherman
    Who sailed the mighty sea
    Searching for the harvest from the deep
    But now the fleets are rusting hulks
    Anchored at the quay
    Floating on a cold gray empty sea

    I can't stop my tears from falling
    Falling down like rain
    Your words of wisdom
    Call to me
    I hang my head in shame
    We're living in the calm before the storm
    We're living in the calm before the storm

    My father was a working man
    He gave his life to me
    His spirit reaches out through time
    And guides my destiny

    I can't stop my tears from falling
    Falling down like rain
    Your words of wisdom
    Call to me
    I hang my head in shame
    We're living in the calm before the storm
    We're living in the calm before the storm

    We're living in the calm before the storm
    We're living in the calm before the storm Writer/s: GRAHAM OLIVER, PAUL QUINN, PETERY ROONEY BYFORD
