Chasing down the storm

It’s a half past a little too late, I’m hitting the door

I’d try not to hurt you, but I’d wind up hurting you more

I got demons in my back pocket dying to be set free

St Christopher’s long since given up on me

Dark clouds are blowing east

So east is where I’m bound

Chorus:

There’s a lonely road I’m gonna run

It’s the only road I know

Where I’m going there ain’t no sun

Old friend thunder’s gonna roll

And lightening, sweet Jesus

Strikes where every sin is born

But I always had a taste

For chasing down the storm

You see, I’m a hurricane ready to blow

When I touch down, there’s no safe place to go

I don’t trust blue skies cuz they don’t stay blue for long

I’m just nothing but bad news born to be moving on

Dark clouds are blowing east

So east is where I’m bound

Bridge:

Next time it rains, take a look around

It might just be me rolling into town
