It was just starting to drizzle as I walked out the door
But I've delivered papers in the rain like that before
Three thirty in the morning, I was happy as a lark
As I grabbed my bike and rode into the dark
I pedaled through the neighborhood, the weather on my mind
The wind was picking up and howling louder all the time
The sky churned like a cauldron and the distant thunder roared
And I knew that I was in for quite a storm
A little rain never hurt no one so I kept pressing on
And I tried to tell myself, it's always darkest before the dawn
Lightning struck an oak tree as I leapt off my bike
The sirens started wailing but there was no good place to hide
I knew without a doubt, there was a twister touching down
So I crawled into a culvert to wait it out
The little bit of courage I had left was almost gone
But I tried to tell myself, it's always darkest before the dawn
And then the nightmare started, it got deafeningly loud
Everything fiber in me screamed out but I couldn't make a sound
The whirling of a vortex, a violent carousel
It sounded like a freight train was dragging me to hell
And this was my prayer, "Save me from this terrible nightmare"
That was when I saw my family with my eyes shut real tight
Would they know how much I loved them if this was how I died?
No, I vowed I'd not be murdered by a monster in the sky that night
But if I went home to heaven, at least that's where I'd belong
Yeah I tried to tell myself, it's always darkest before the dawn
So I kept hanging on
I kept hanging on
The shadows slowly melted as I was hunkered down
Till at last the worst was over, the storm was dying out
I crept out of that culvert and I went weak in the knees
Cuz what I saw was a somber sight to see
There was nothing but destruction and wreckage in that town
Cars were upside down and houses leveled to the ground
A twisted trampoline was hanging from the power lines
I blinked a tear back cuz I felt lucky to be alive
And that was how I learned to live when you can run but you can't hide
How to feel trapped in a tunnel but come out the other side
Cuz with all the stormy weather in the world, you learn to take
Life one storm at a time, you don't have to be afraid
And now when there's bad weather on the way, I stay calm
And I keep hanging on because it's always darkest before the dawn
And I keep hanging on
I keep hanging on

My favorite group when I was just a teenager were the Fugees, thanks to them a certain curiosity about english language was born in me. I wanted to know and understand the lyrics of their songs, it wasn't enough for me to be carried away exclusively by their beautiful music.
Sweden and the United States are two countries far from each other, thousands of kilometers separate them, the language, culinary and sporting traditions, I don't feel so categorical about the landscapes, not knowing all of America there may be states that have the same reliefs of the country of northern Europe, but on one thing I am sure
