about

Track originally recorded as part of 3FM's serious request fund-raising efforts in December 2014.

lyrics

Everywhere you look there is no end,
to this darkness everywhere
Everywhere you walk feet sinking deeper into the ground

Everything chances some time
Nobody stays the same all the time
And everything that happens now will sail away, further away

Don’t, don’t let me down
Even when the water’s rising quickly oh
Don’t, don’t give up
Even when the night’s so long, the night so long
Because there is always calm after the storm

Everywhere you look there is no end,
but everything that’s swallowed by the wind
will come to you when seas are calm and the stormy night sleeps alone

No, I won’t let you drown
Even when the water’s rising quickly
Don’t, don’t give up
Even when the night’s so long, the night so long
Because there is always calm after the storm

Don’t, don’t let me down
Even though the water’s rising quickly oh
Don’t, don’t give up
Even when the night’s so long, the night so long
I promise there is always calm after the storm
