"Storm" as written by and Vincent Neff David Maclean....
You wanna the go
You're always wanna go
You want to go somewhere
Where you don't know

You always run
And when I try to run
You leave me bent over
With a stitch in the road

You are a maze
A complex sum
I've counted all my fingers
And I'm on to my thumb

You are a storm
You are my little storm
I watch the wind change
To find out where you've been blown

Pull it up
And steer it over
Cut the lights
This game is over

You conjure a key
In the palm of your hand
You're burning all your bridges
Drawing a line in the sand

We travel far
Catch the last of the sun
We keep on going
Til we've nowhere to run

Look at the hills
They look so green
The horizon is the place
That you always dream

We shoot the nest
Like a bolt from a gun
You're tapping on the door
To the beat of the drum

Pull it up
And steer it over
Cut the lights
This game is over

Look at the [?]
They look so free
It's the only real thing
That's been happening to me

You're taking all
You thought was wrong
You used it for the lyrics
Of your favorite song

You are a maze
A complex sum
I've counted all my fingers
And I'm on to my thumb

You are a storm
You are my little storm
I watch the wind change
To find out where you've been blown

Pull it up
And steer it over
Cut the lights
This game is over

    Lyric CorrectionJust a few of my own suggestions here:


    Second verse I think begins 'You always run' instead of 'And when you run'


    In the 'chorus' bit:

    'Pull it up
    And steer it up
    This game is over'

    I think there should be another line before that last one:

    'Pull it up
    And steer it up
    I can't relax
    This game is over'


    And also I would change the verse:

    'You're taking all
    You thought was wrong
    You used to follow lyrics
    Of your favorite song'

    To:

    'You've taken all
    You thought was wrong
    You used it for the lyrics
    Of your favorite song'


    Just a few suggestions, no idea if they're right :)


    Great song btw, I personally think this band deserves way more publicity than it gets.

    General CommentThis was transcribed from two versions of this song. I'm sure I've got the chorus wrong ("Hold it up.."), and I have a feeling "We shoot the nest..." isn't right. I think it's an amazing song, and if anyone has changes, post them here. I'll check back and correct as necessary.

    General Commentit's 'we travel west' not 'we shoot the nest' (i.e. 'catching the last of the sun')

    I love this band so much!
