Spirit Of A Storm

by Kenny Chesney, Brett James

from the album Lucky Old Sun


Lyrics

There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul
A restlessness that I can’t seem to tame
Thunder and lightning follow everywhere I go
There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul

There’s a hurricane that’s raging through my blood
I can’t find a way to calm the sea
Maybe I’ll find someday the waters aren’t so rough
Right now they’ve got the best of me

And oh it’s been a long, long time
Since I had real peace of mind
So I’m just going to sit right here
In this old chair til this storm rolls by

Oh maybe it’s just the way I am
Maybe I won’t ever change
So I’m just going to sit right here
In this old chair and just soak up the rain

There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul
Every time I think it’s gone away
Dark clouds gather, that old wind begins to blow
The sun’s going to shine someday I hope
There’s a spirit of a storm in my soul
In my soul

Kenny’s Note

There’s no way around it… this is a song about the restlessness inside a lot of us, certainly me. And it’s one of those things that comes upon you. One day, I just realized that I’d not been completely happy in a long, long time… there were good days and bad days, but there was always this constant sense of something pressing down on my head like a bag of bricks. I think we all experience it at different times in our lives – that sense of missing something or someone. I’m not the only one trying to get past certain things in my life… and this song is for anyone who’s seeking that peace.
