"The Storm" as written by Cunnie Williams and Quentin Bachelet....
Weather the storm,
Came out the outher side,
The place your were born, yeah
The place inside.

Don't be sad its gone,
Don't be sad and long.

To Weather the storm,
Up on your feet again,
It all comes down,
We still got this end.

Don't be sad its gone,
Can't be sad for long,
Don't give up be strong,
Don't be sad and gone.

To weather it all,
To come out the other side,
With the moon all high,
I'll see you on the other side.

To come out the other side,
To come out the other side.

    General CommentI think this song has one really important meaning: life is more uncertain, depressing and confusing today now more than ever. Basically the song says that we all have to sadly endure the crazy pace of this world and how cold it really is if we want to truly be ourselves. The dramatic orchestrated feel at the end really does seem to convey that the world is a cold place, and we're all stuck in it.

    "So come out the other side" to me is recognizing what things are like today. Stop faking, accept reality and be yourself again. I think that's what "The Storm" is - a cold, hard place that nobody wants to accept as being real and thus they just deny it, creating a persona that nobody wants to deal with... "don't be sad I'm gone the night you left the storm." That basically says "don't blame me for your ignorance of what the problem really is. If you want to be accepted again come back and face it like everyone else, it's the only way we can overcome it."

    I think it's ultimately a message for someone who is really struggling. It's basically saying we are all in this together, a lot of people do not like the way things are, but Doves are trying to say you can't give up without a fight and that people will be there for you if you try to get by with them. If we're going down the spiral, we go down together.

    General CommentI always thought this was from the perspective of someone who died singing to a loved one - 'dont be sad im gone' and 'I'll see you on the other side so come out the other side' - in other words get through your grief because we'll meet again.
    On the other hand it could mean coming through a hard time in life.

    General CommentI think this song is about two lovers torn apart through tragedy or death, and it is a plea from the other side by the deceased to their lover to come through the grief and pain 'Don't give up be strong
    Don't be sad I'm gone'. The son ends with 'I'll see you on the other side So come out the other side' meaning we will meet in heaven again soon so just get through this initial pain.

    the violin harmonica and the acoustic are all beautiful x
