Lyrics

Weather The storm

Written By: Melanie Sroka Chaunce

Once upon a time there was a love come through
island in the sun, dreams come true
But the waters between us won't let me be with you
loving everyday, no one to give it to!

How can I go on without you?
Without your love how can I make it through
I just don't know quite what to do
How can I go on without you

I need a love to weather the storm
lovin' all night til the light of the morn
alone in a world so desperate and cold
I need a love to keep me warm

I held my dream in sorrow, alone and confused
love unlike any other but what could I do
our worlds had come together in a love that was true
but the walls that separate us
were too strong to break through

How can I go on without you?
without your love how can I make it through?
I just don't know quite what to do
How can I go on without you?

I need a love to weather the storm
(put my arms around you)
with loving all night through the light of the morn
(baby I'll astound you)
Alone in a world so desperate and cold,
I need a love to keep me warm!

How can I go on without you?
Without your love how can I make it through?
I just don't know quite what to do,
how can I go on with out you

I need a love to weather the storm
(put my arms around you)
with loving all night through the light of the morn
(baby I'll astound you)
Alone in a world so desperate and cold,
I need your love to keep me warm!

How can I go on with out you
without your love how can I make it through
I just don't know quite what to do
How can I go on without you

I never thought there'd come a time like this
where I would have to give up your sweet kiss
I think of all the beautiful times we'll miss
but I just can't go on like this

I need a love to weather the storm
loving all night til the light of the morn
Alone in a world so desperate and cold,
I need a love to keep me warm!

I gotta go on, I gotta go on, I gotta go on,
without you, I gotta go on,
without your love baby, I gotta make it through
I don't know quite what I'll do but
I gotta go on without you
without your love, I gotta make it through
we are so worlds apart and even though I gotta broken heart
I gotta go on with out you!
