It's storming now,
but it can't rain forever;
monsoon season
is not eternal,
so I will be your umbrella
for a little while.

And you say a mighty sea
could sink the strongest ship,
but I'm telling you
you're a strong swimmer
I'll be your driftwood
and you can hang onto me.

Cry for me
because you're only human,
and I promise
it will be okay
so this pain will be your light,
and I'll be your direction
and you can flip the switch
and suffering will end tonight.
