Lyrics: Swells and Storms

Awake
To hear you talking in your sleep
Speaking through your dreaming
You smiled and said my name...
Peace...
There's no need to overwhelm
Cause when there's stillness at the helm
It just knows which way to go...

Fires...blazing all around
Entice you with the heat of it...
Before it burns you down....
Open up
Your eyes a little more
You'll see it all unfolding
When you open up the doors

This feels like home
A ceiling of stars
These open roads
With something to believe in
And someone to hold...
Through the swells and storms

Through the swells and storms
Through the swells and storms
Together we'll grow
Together we'll grow
Together we'll grow
Wherever we go...
Wherever we go...
