I guess we should just be thankful,
Like they say, a house ain't a home;
It's hard to believe wind and water,
Made this town look like a war zone.
I can't believe this happened to me.

I heard they'll be sending us money,
But money ain't gonna fix this;
You can't put a price on a memory,
Or a place that no longer exists.
As I walk through these ruins
in search of the truth,
One thing seems painfully clear:
It's not the end of the world,
But I can see it from here.

That was my little girl's bedroom,
The only one she's ever known;
Now all we got left are some pictures,
Of the house that kept our family warm.
But I still believe God's watching me.

I heard they'll be sending us money,
But money ain't gonna fix this;
You can't put a price on a memory,
Or a place that no longer exists.
As I walk through these ruins
in search of the truth,
One thing seems painfully clear:
It's not the end of the world,
But I can see it from here.

Mother Nature's too strong, she pulls us along,
Sometimes she's no lady at all;
I'm sure there's a plan, it's all in God's hands,
So I get back up each time I fall.

I heard they'll be sending us money,
But money ain't gonna fix this;
You can't put a price on a memory,
Or a place that no longer exists.
As I walk through these ruins
in search of the truth,
One thing seems painfully clear:
It's not the end of the world,
It's not the end of the world,
No, it's not the end of the world,
But I can see it from here.
I can see it from here.
It sure feels like it here.

Notes from Damian Follett:
I wrote this song with my good buddy Tom Trabucco who lives in Nashville, Tennessee. The song was written about the never-ending cycle of hurricanes that occur every year down south. But after Hurricane Igor landed on our shores on Tuesday, September 21, 2010, the song took on a whole new meaning. Thanks to Rob and Nancy Pollett and Lex Griffiths for the pictures. I hope the song gives some hope to those who were hit hard by this storm. God bless you all. Stay strong and safe.
