about

Through the Storm
Kathy Dunlap / Terry Radigan

lyrics

I was always crying
But I didn't know why
Since I was five years old
Always tears in my eyes
Took me forty years
To give it a name
To take off that mask
To shed that shame

Of no job
No home
No place in this world to call my own
Desperate doubting
Couldn't do one thing right
Barely hanging on to
My own life
Short list of pros
And a whole lot of cons
For the reasons I should carry on

The Adamsville Ancients
Fife and Drum Corps
Was the one and only thing
I'd get out of bed for
That American flag was the only thing
I never let down
Uphill both ways
I picked myself off the ground

Of no job
No home
No place in this world
To call my own
Desperate doubting
Couldn't do one thing right
Barely hanging on to
My own life
Short list of pros
And a whole lot of cons
For the reasons I should carry on

Had to wade through muddy water
To wash myself clean
Of the places I'd been
And the things I had seen

So I could trust myself
With my next step
With my next move
With my next breath
Confident, so secure
I finally got it right
I took back my life
Short list of cons
And a whole lot of pros
And a wide open endless road

My tomorrow
Will not be stolen
My story is far from over
No period
