Great Big Storm
Nate Ruess Lyrics


Because we're
Holding our own in a great big storm
It's a great big storm and we're holding our own
Holding our own in a great big storm
It's a great big storm and we're holding our own

I've been lost in this maze
Losing love, losing friends
Losing faith in chemicals
Afraid one day you'll find me
Asleep above the stars
I watch my mother cry
Father Time is catching up
I keep the phone by my side
Afraid she'll wake me up to catch the next flight
In time to say goodbye

But sometimes I fall asleep at night
To the TV light and it sings
Oh ooo whoa oh
One day the sun will break into the room

Because we're holding our own in a great big storm
And though we're cutting it close
We won't let go
Oh no I can't believe
Everything falling down around me
But now we're holding our own
And won't let go
Holding our own in a great big storm
It's a great big storm and we're holding our own
Holding our own in a great big storm
It's a great big storm and we're holding our own

Broken hearts broken homes and broken bones
Secret love let me go
You know I gotta find my own way
Through mistakes that I can't change
Because there's beauty in every sin
Every single black eye
Has some blue like the moon just before the sun shines
No I don't believe in all the things that they preach

But sometimes I fall asleep at night
And I just know you're smiling at me
Oh ooo whoa oh
One day I'm gonna make this up to you

Because we're holding our own in a great big storm
And though we're cutting it close
We won't let go
Oh no I can't believe
Everything falling down around me
But now we're holding our own
And won't let go
Holding our own in a great big storm
It's a great big storm and we're holding our own
Holding our own in a great big storm
It's a great big storm and we're holding our own

I can't stand myself
And all the curse words that fall from my mouth
I can't stand myself
Or my legs as they run from the ones here to help
But I just woke up with you next to me
Some new air to breathe
And a belief that it's all gonna be alright
I can't stand myself
But it's high time that we gave it a try
And I think I'm gonna finally give myself a new try

Because I'm holding our own in a great big storm
And though we're cutting it close
We won't let go
Oh no I can't believe
Everything falling down around me
But now we're holding our own
And won't let go

"Great Big Storm"

Because we're

[x2:]
Holding our own in a great big storm
It's a great big storm and we're holding our own

I've been lost in this maze
Losing love losing friends losing faith in chemicals
Afraid one day you'll find me
Asleep above the stars

I watch my mother cry
Father time is catching up
I keep the phone by my side
Afraid she'll wake me up to catch the next flight
In time to say goodbye

But sometimes I fall asleep at night
To the TV light and it sings
Oh ooo whoa oh
One day the sun will break into the room

Because we're holding our own in a great big storm
And though we're cutting it close
We won't let go
Oh no I can't believe
Everything falling down around me
But now we're holding our own
And won't let go

[x2:]
Holding our own in a great big storm
It's a great big storm and we're holding our own

Broken hearts broken homes and broken bones
Secret love let me go
You know I gotta find my own way
Through mistakes that I can't change

Because there's beauty in every sin
Every single black eye
Has some blue like the moon just before the sun shines
No I don't believe in all the things that they preach

But sometimes I fall asleep at night
And I just know you're smiling at me
Oh ooo whoa oh
One day I'm gonna make this up to you

Because we're holding our own in a great big storm
And though we're cutting it close
We won't let go
Oh no I can't believe
Everything falling down around me
But now we're holding our own
And won't let go

[x2:]
Holding our own in a great big storm
It's a great big storm and we're holding our own

I can't stand myself
And all the curse words that fall from my mouth
I can't stand myself
Or my legs as they run from the ones here to help
But I just woke up with you next to me
Some new air to breathe
And a belief that it's all gonna be alright
I can't stand myself
But it's high time that we gave it a try
And I think I'm gonna finally give myself a new try

Because I'm holding my own in this great big storm
And though I'm cutting it close
Oh we won't let go
Oh no I can't believe
Everything falling down around me
But now we're holding our own
And won't let go
No we won't let go
No we won't let go, oh no

So happy to share the "Great Big Storm" music video! I've made a bunch of music videos, but this was one of my favorites. We went to Montreal for the weekend and blocked off a really cool street. It was a beautiful day, so we had to bring the rain ourselves. Usually the highlights for me in Montreal are the bagels. However this time I'd have to say it was the incredible people involved in making the video. Whether it was the crew, the extras, or the random college kids I shot gunned a beer with on the street- everyone was so friendly and worked so hard to make this awesome video.

Nate, your music is so powerful! You sing with total abandon. Intelligent, emotional, soul bearing lyrics. This song is so uplifting! So many gifted artists struggling with inner turmoil creating powerful art. I hope you find the balance between happiness and the creative. Keep looking up!
