Lyrics

O the waves crash in and the tide pulls out
It's an angry sea but there is no doubt
That the lighthouse will keep shining out
To warn the lonely sailor
And the lightning strikes and the wind cuts cold
Through the sailor's bones to the sailor's soul
Till there's nothing left that he can hold
Except the rolling ocean

[Chorus]
But I am ready for the storm, yes sir ready
I am ready for the storm, I'm ready for the storm

Give me mercy for my dreams
For every confrontation seems
To tell me what it really means
To be this lonely sailor
But when the sky begins to clear
And the sun it melts away my fear
I'll cry a silent weary tear
For those that need to ove me

[Chorus]
But I am ready for the storm, yes sir ready
I am ready for the storm, I'm ready for the storm

But distance it is no real friend
And time it takes its time
But you will find that in the end
It brings you me the lonely sailor
But when you take me by your side
You love me warm, you love me
And I should have realized
I had no reasons to be frightened

[Chorus]
But I am ready for the storm, yes sir ready
I am ready for the storm, I'm ready for the storm

This is SO BEAUTIFUL! What a gorgeous mood and atmosphere you've set up. I love how you focused on how Shepard finds love and friends and support in the midst of all of this, how she builds a family while also being called to save the world.

So, I don't know anything about these games but I do like how you've weaved together a sense of foreboding with a sense of comfort/love throughout the vid.

The melancholy feel of the song goes really well with how you've woven your story :) This was really nice to watch at the con - I love seeing everyone's feelings about Mass Effect as vids!
