lyrics

I’ll wait for you in Iowa
in the house upon the hill
yesterday tornadoes came
but here I’m standing still
here I’m standing still

I know these past few days have been
the hardest that we've had
last night we nearly lost it all
but here we're standing still
here we're standing still

I would give it all
I'd give it all to you
if only I knew
what it is I've got for you
what I've got to give you
what it is I've got for you

on the day that we pass on into -
nobody knows
may we leave a memory
of us after the storm
ever standing still
here we're standing still
here we’re standing still
here we’re standing still
