There Will Always Be Storms

Music and lyrics by Claudia Anderson

She taught the third grade
And some days she remembers herself
A young woman alongside her George
Dressed in pale blue pajamas
She lives on a corner of couch
Where she waits in the dark barely moving at all

There will always be storms
At the end of the storm, there is light

Old cousin Sally
Got caught in a storm so she
Boarded her windows and locked all her doors
You can buy lovely trinkets
And bring them to her where they rest on a shelf
And remind her of nothing at all

There will always be storms
At the end of the storm, there is light

Sally hardly remembers
The turbulent years when the
Hurricanes blew and electrical storms came her way
Her light wavered wildly
Eccentric or crazy
Some said she was soft from too long in the sun

There will always be storms
At the end of the storm, there is light

At the end of the storm
There are shells on the beach
There are shells on the beach
But they’re just out of reach

There are faces parading
And nurses and caretakers
Stop in to see an old woman in darkness alone
Cherishing greetings from folks far away
Though she doesn’t want things
When you visit, there’s light in her eyes
She awakens though clouds might appear

There will always be storms
At the end of the storm, there is light
There will always be storms
At the end of the storm, there is light
