I can feel it coming on
The storm brewing straight ahead
Nothing I can do to stop it
Black clouds forming in my head

In this state I cannot function
People say I’m just lazy
They’ve no idea what its like
To live with a mind so hazy

I must hold on to the waterwheel
As it drags me under the ocean
Cause I always come out the other side
Back to more positive emotion

Suddenly the fog has cleared
I can see blue skies all around
I’m so relieved, for the time being
Clarity and happiness will abound

There will be more torrents in my travels
Though for now my heart and soul are warm
Soaking up the soothing sun
In the serenity after the storm
