Lyrics

Calm Before The Storm

Calm Before The Storm

 

Verse 1.

She walked into the crowded room - smoke filled the air

Popularity was her god - right or wrong she did not care

But soon the end it came - without a sound

All the friends she thought she had - they were not around

She saw a Man -  she heard of long ago

With tear filled eyes - He said you I do not know

 

Pre-Chorus:

What more can do - when life has turned on you

Tell me now is it true

 

Chorus:

It's the calm before the storm

One night and it's all gone

The calm before the storm

One night you're gone - you're gone

 

Verse 2.

When the sirens came - she was scared but felt no pain

Everything just turned to black

She saw the car in flames - childhood memories bring back pain

Now she knows she can't go back

 

Verse 3.

She saw her life go by - through a child's eyes

Now she's overcome with fear

The tears roll down her face - because she knows this place

She cries and cries but no one hears

 

Verse 4.

And now it's time to choose - because it could be you

Are you going to slam the door

Will you stand there proud - and scream there is no God

You say there's no Hell but are you sure

 

Pre-Chorus:

What more can you do - when life has turned on you

Tell me now is it true

 

Chorus:

It's the calm before the storm 

One night and it's all gone

The calm before the storm 

One night you're gone - you're gone

Bill's thoughts on this song:

Calm Before The Storm is a sad song about a girl that was given chance after chance to hear about Jesus and the Way to Heaven and chose to turn Him away. She chose popularity over the Truth and after a fatal car crash she finds out 3 seconds after death that Heaven and Hell are very real places. It would have been sooo easy to accept Jesus but now it's too late for her... a song of warning.

Tell me now is it true.
