Storm Surge

Capo on 4th

G D/F# A/E
There’s only the night
that comes with surprise
white on the peak
and spring rain in sheets
oh my head feels
like a swimming ship
there’s a storm surge
and the winds whip
—-D
There’s only the night
lost memories
hiding underneath
so that you can’t see
slowly it sets
the sun soon forgets
until again
it shines and burns skin

D A Bmin G Emin
The whitewash swells and crashes
my whit knuckles take the lashes
holding on to the railing so I don’t go overboard

There’s only the night
and if not for the starry sky
I’d be lost
and I’d just drive
and wackel Elvis swings
hung on a string
his hips moving
with the suspension’s jerky springs
D
There’s only the night
the rumble strip
rattling the tires
when I slipped into sleep
I grabbed the wheel
alert like a thief
seconds pass
what a relief!

Chorus

So I don’t go overboard repeat X2

The moment came but I missed my chance

I met my match and struck it fast
