Sunny days are over
Sunny days are over
It was so warm
It was so warm
My left knee is shaking
That big cloud is breaking
Now there's a storm
Now there's a storm

Winter has come
Clouds burst like bombs
We're pelted with such rain
Waking up to real pain
One love has failed
Lost in the gale
One day I'll get to start again

I should have foreseen this attack
Should have brought an anorak
My soaking vest
Clings to my chest
Now I'm hanging on the mast
Ship is flying in the blast
How i capsize
Spray in my eyes

Feeling so ill
Beaten ten-nil
But i'd hate to always win
Then i'd never feel a thing
Joy cannot be
Without misery
I can't let myself give in

Maybe there's a reason
Happiness has seasons
Like weathervanes
Waxes and wanes
The romance that just turned sour
Had the lifespan of a flower
Came in the Spring
Gone with the wind

It's all a storm
It won't last long
Though it thunders with such force
I must try to keep my course
Don't let me sink
Don't let me think
Of never getting out of this

Here comes the storm
Here comes the storm
