STORM is an album about self-reflection, perseverance and accepting, but ultimately letting go of the negatives in our lives. Michelle’s hope is that this music will initiate healing, whatever people are going through: a bad breakup, lack of self-esteem, feelings of giving up, anxiety, losing a friend etc. These songs should mean whatever each individual wants them to mean as a storm can represent each human emotion in a different form. Whether it be anger, sadness, joy, despair, love, regret, frustration or confusion, a storm is powerful and cannot be controlled. However, those who fight to find inner strength, peace, and happiness, learn to wait out the weather until it settles. They learn to find humour in the imperfections and even start to appreciate every storm that life throws at them. After all, the best time to appreciate a sunny day is after a year of rain!

MUSIC VIDEOS & LYRICS

Guess what, I’m done with you
And your psychopathic, idiotic attitude
Get lost, you won’t be missed
It’s beyond impossible for us to coexist

Man, I used to have respect for you
I used to think the best of you
And maybe I’m the reason that you’re so worked up
But I can’t afford to deal with this
And if you’re not gonna leave then I’m a lose my grip

Say my senses have gone hazy
Do you own a mirror, crazy

Now what’s your cause, what’s your gain
When you come raining over my parade
The forecast here was sunny and clear
Before you whirled in like a hurricane

God you’re so temperamental, though I’m sentimental
It feels like I’ll never wanna see you again
So take your stormy weather to somebody else
To somebody else, to somebody else, to somebody else

Guess what, I’m happy now
But you’re swimming in denial cause you don’t like how
I’m rid of all your chains
I praise that I unlocked them every single day

Man, I used to really look up to you
I’ll wish the best of luck to you
With no complaining, understating all my hate
But last thing, gotta say, I’m quite impressed with
How good you got at turning ordered minds into mess

You had such control over me
Watch as I let go entirely

Now what’s your cause, what’s your gain
When you come raining over my parade
The forecast here was sunny and clear
Before you whirled in like a hurricane

God you’re so temperamental, though I’m sentimental
It feels like I’ll never wanna see you again
So take your stormy weather to somebody else
To somebody else, to somebody else, to somebody else

It’s sad how much irony is laced
In the fabric of all results you face
Panicking and acting on the fear of losing me
Was the very thing that made it be

So what was your cause, and what was your gain
When you came raining over my parade
The forecast here was sunny and clear
Before you whirled in like a hurricane

You were so temperamental, though I’m sentimental
It feels like I’ll never wanna see you again
So take your stormy weather to somebody else

Now what was your cause, and what was your gain
When you came raining over my parade
The forecast here was sunny and clear
Before you whirled in like a hurricane

You were so temperamental, though I’m sentimental
It feels like I’ll never wanna see you again
So take your stormy weather to somebody else
To somebody else, to somebody else, to somebody else

I’ve held back my words
Dangled them over the edge
But never dove in

Well I’ve tried subtle things
Wonder how obvious they’ve been
Out of clues to give

‘Cause I’m having trouble
Receiving your signals
The wires are crossed
As everybody’s eyes are on us

Pretty soul, beautiful angel
I’ve been so
Deep in love and buried in unknown ground
And I think you’ve figured it out
It’s temporary torture and I know I’ll get over it
I’ll stay a friend, but
Tell me maybe I won’t have to

When you focus in on me
Can you feel that electricity

Don’t be afraid
There’s nothing those lips could say
To push this soul away

You’ll never lose me
I’m yours entirely
Whatever that means
Friends or everything

But I’m having trouble
Receiving your signals
The wires are crossed
As everybody’s eyes are on us

Pretty soul, beautiful angel
I’ve been so
Deep in love and buried in unknown ground
And I think you’ve figured it out
It’s temporary torture and I know I’ll get over it
I’ll stay a friend, but
Tell me maybe I won’t have to

When you focus in on me
Can you feel that electricity

Pretty soul, beautiful angel
I’ve been so
Deep in love and buried in unknown ground
And I think you’ve figured it out
It’s temporary torture and I know I’ll get over it
I’ll stay a friend, but
Tell me maybe I won’t have to

When you focus in on me
Can you feel that electricity

Focus in on me
Can you feel that electricity

Focus in on me
Can you feel that electricity

Letters and cards
Remnants of
An era that I
Failed to hide from myself

Buried inside
Boxes on my
Old bed I find
Every now and then to cry

Thought I’d let go
Thought I’d moved on
But I’m mourning, more than
I can handle

It’s been so long
But it’s still hard
To accept that I can’t
Have you in my life

Better lock this up in a song
Like it never really happened at all
Like it never really happened at all
Like it never really happened at all

Photos of us
Well they go back for miles and miles and miles and
Love and laughter was all that they captured
And now I’m panicked, what happened

Wanna revise this
Can I rewrite us

Thought I’d let go
Thought I’d moved on
But I’m mourning, more than
I can handle

It’s been so long
But it’s still hard
To accept that I can’t
Have you in my life

Better lock this up in a song

Should’ve burned this box when I had the chance
When my anger hadn’t turned into sadness yet

Well I was sure this was for the best
And I guess it still is
I’m just having a relapse
A moment of regret

Thought I’d let go
Thought I’d moved on
But I miss you, in truth
I hope you miss me too

Thought I’d let go
Thought I’d moved on
But I’m mourning, more than
I can handle

It’s been so long
But it’s still hard
To accept that I can’t
Have you in my life

Better lock this up in a song
‘Cause to fess up now would be wrong
I’ll put the box back where it belongs
Like it never really happened at all

Selfless to a fault
Mending other hearts
While yours beats steady in the dark
So self-critical
Stubborn, logical
Emotions never get a thought

Soak in the sadness
Of oceans you’re fixing
They’re windy and broken
But your waves also need settling

Lighthouse, lighthouse
Looking out for everyone else
Shine some, shine some
Light on yourself, light on yourself
Just relax now, the boats won’t crash
So lighthouse, lighthouse
Shine that light on yourself

Beacon of hope
On the edge of the coast
Is always turning for someone
It must be tough

Though you’re inspiring
And we’re all admiring
Every good deed
Many good deeds you have done

Windy and broken
Your own waves also need a little attention

Lighthouse, lighthouse
Looking out for everyone else
Shine some, shine some
Light on yourself, light on yourself
Just relax now, the boats won’t crash
So lighthouse, lighthouse
Shine that light on yourself

Winding stairs that need repair
Wooden doors hidden on a thousand floors
Endless complicated corridors
That I can navigate most of the time
‘Cause they’re just like mine

Lighthouse, lighthouse
Shine some, shine some
Light on yourself

Lighthouse, lighthouse
Looking out for everyone else
Shine some, shine some
Light on yourself, light on yourself
Just relax now, the boats won’t crash
So lighthouse, lighthouse
Shine that light on yourself
Shine that light on yourself
Go on and shine that light on yourself

Mindless, weak and small
Mercenary fraud
Broke all moral laws
To earn reward for bad behavior

Well honey you better learn your lies, lie lie lies
Been ruling a false empire, lie lie liar
Lie lie liar, lie lie la dee dah…

Fueled by fear and crime
Checkers in chess by hopping the mess
And working the ladder by stepping on any head
Power is divine
Spoil the rich, ignoring the poor
I pity the soul who’d remain in defense of you
Stole yourself a mound of riches, buy yourself a heart

Well honey you better learn your lies, lie lie lies
You’ve been ruling a false empire, lie lie liar
And when you gotta testify
There’ll be no alibis
To get you through this fire
Lie lie liar, lie lie liar
Lie lie la dee dah…

You’re gonna hear a knock knock knock
On your golden doors
And then a stomp, stomp on your marble floors
We’re gonna find the rebels, find find the rebels
Then we’ll fight together, fight fight together

‘Cause you know revolution is a given here
You thought that we’re gonna take this
We’re gonna make this
Easy for you to walk all over us
No we’re the rebels, we’re we’re the rebels
And we’ll fight together, fight fight together
When you are on your own

Well honey you better learn your lies, lie lies
You’ve been ruling a false empire, lie lie liar
And when you gotta testify
There’ll be no alibis
And we’ll set your words on fire
Lie lie liar

I built you a sandcastle
One night in July
It might have been summer then
But unlike the skies, you had lost your light and

I wanted to fix things
Find some kind of structure
Clouded eyes, you sat there as I gathered the sand
Then that wave washed it back

I made you a paper airplane
Claimed I was the pilot
That I could fly you anywhere
But you were so damn scared
You tied yourself to the runway
A speckle on the concrete and

I wanted to fix things
Find what you were missing
Clouded eyes, you sat there as I flew out of sight
Still waiting on my descent

What happened
Where did you go
My old friend
I’m on the lookout
But I’m not sure
If there’s anything more I can do

I thought I could fix things
Find something that’d lift you
I tried but you never really wanted to change

I made you a paper airplane
You chose to stay
I built you a sandcastle
It washed away

Check off that box, Monday is done
Morning is far away from us
Next thing you know, Wednesday got lost
Thursday was just as forgetful
Friday we’re stuck

Is it the end of the world or just another bad day
I’m not counting the cards on it either way
So we screwed up this round, well I’m redealing them
Until they say we’ll be ok
‘Cause we’ve got no choice but to stay
Welcome to reality

Wrapped up in when, hollow with how
So often like why should I even care at all
Life waits for end, wonder if you and time are still friends
It feels like every week all the answers you need
Run farther from reach

You say to me is it the end of the world or just another bad day
Don’t be counting the cards on it either way
So ya screwed up this round, well I’m redealing them
Until they say you’ll be ok
‘Cause you’ve got no choice but to stay
Welcome to reality

Welcome to you, welcome to me
Welcome to them, we’re all stuck with the same hand

Is it the end of the world or just another bad day
I’m not counting the cards on it either way
So we screwed up this round, well I’m redealing them
Until they say we’ll be ok
‘Cause we’ve got no choice but to stay

And no, it’s not the end of the world, it’s just another bad day
And that lucky hand is coming your way
So don’t be afraid while I’m redealing when
They’re gonna say you’ll be ok
Stay patient to win it all someday

I know they’re gonna say we’ll be ok
‘Cause we’ve got so much time to play
Welcome to reality

I’ve been such a mess
A certified wreck
The devil in my head
Has a ready servant

You’ve been more than I deserve
Your light offering an easy cure

Let me in, let me love
Let me be there you say
I’m sorry baby

I don’t wanna see you
Don’t wanna be healing that way
It’s so unfair to your heart
And I’m scared of myself

Venom in my words
Foul intentions
I wanna hurt me so I hurt you
And that’s my backwards truth

But nobody ever matters more
And my devil knows so before
She poisons your soul, just go

Let me in, let me love
Let me be there you say
I’m sorry baby

I don’t wanna see you
Don’t wanna be healing that way
It’s so unfair to your heart
And I’m scared of myself

Because I’m destructive, I’m toxic
I’m obsessive, I can’t let you in right now
Gotta pull myself out

Won’t accept that easy cure
Don’t offer any more
I know you mean so well but listen

I’ll need withdrawal, just to relearn
How to be more than tears and dark thoughts again
This is not who I am

Let me in, let me love
Let me in, let me love

Let me in, let me love
Let me be there you say
I’m sorry baby

I don’t wanna see you
Don’t wanna be healing that way
Let me in, let me love
Let me help

Why don’t I give in
Why don’t I give up
You wonder, would anyone notice

What do I live for
What do I have now to show my worth
You get so low there friend

Carry on, baby you are loved
When you wanna fall
Just stay strong
‘Cause hope is never far gone

What if we gave in
What if we gave up before the miracles
Tables turn you know

You may in live vain
You may suffer every single day
But there is a choice to make

Carry on, baby you are loved
When you wanna fall
Just stay strong
‘Cause hope is never far gone

We have heart, we have mind
We have soul, and there is time
There is death, but you are life

Please carry on
I know you are strong
When you wanna fall
Remember who you love
‘Cause they will miss you if you’re gone

Finally, I’ve found peace
In this big, busy world
That’s been overwhelming me

I’m tuning in
To every positive
Even simple things
Like water and oxygen

So nice, so nice, what a great life, alright
So right, so right, feeling alive

Here’s to the keeper of my heart
And here’s to my mama and my pops
Cheers to wonderful friends
Even the ones who came and left
It was all for the best

Isn’t it nice, so nice, what a great life
And isn’t it so right, so right, I’m feeling alive

Now I’d like to thank the worst of times
For giving me this new perspective
Hard to believe I’m smiling again
The storm is settling

So nice, so nice, what a great, crazy beautiful life
And isn’t it so right, so right, I’m feeling alive

Oh and it’s so nice, so nice, what a great life
And isn’t it so right, so right, I’m feeling alive

So nice, so nice

Send me off, I leave come morning
I’m going beyond our forest
There’s a pot of gold somewhere I know it

Through the hills I go forth solo
To return the village hero
Miles along I’m met with my first obstacle

I’m at a loss
Compass broken
I’m at a crossroads
Now everything’s uncertain

Wary of the path not chosen
Right or left, I’m left here frozen
Searching for my instincts
And spare courage

But I’m at a loss
Compass broken
I’m at a crossroads
And everything’s uncertain

Don’t you dare go running back home
An empty handed, hollow hero
Just make your next move

I’m at a loss
Compass broken
I’m at a crossroads
And suddenly it’s all so clear

No right or wrong
Only learning
I’m at a crossroads
And every step will take me closer
I’ll return soon
