Quiet Storm~Smokey Robinson

Quiet Storm| Soulful Love Ballads

Quiet Storm is a sub-genre of R & B music, set apart by piercing super sensuous, extra smooth romantic tones, doused in the flame of love. The genre is unique in that it goes where common love songs can’t. To be Quiet Storm worthy the song must massage the mind and soul in ways that average romantic lyrics fails to.

Quiet Storm married to Soulful ballad produces the most powerful love songs ever written, or sung. To comprehend Quiet Storm, you must know the meaning of Love, understand that you can’t choose who you’re going to Love, and be willing to speak to your heart through song.

A Quiet Storm

Soft and warm, a quiet storm
Quiet as when flowers talk at break of dawn, break of dawn
A power source of tender force
Generatin’, radiatin’, turnin’ me on, turnin’ me on

Oh, you short circuit all my nerves
Promising electric pains
You touch me and suddenly there’s rainbow rings

Quiet storm blowing
Through my life, oh
Quiet storm blowing
Through my life, oh blow, baby

Oh, when you sigh, we can ride
A butterfly caught up in a hurricane, hurricane
Lucky me, I’m glad I’m free
Suddenly I’m caught up in your summer rain

oh, shower me with your sweet love
I will bathe in every drop
Through all the seasons
Let it pour and never stop

Quiet storm blowing
Through my life, through my life
You’re just like a quiet storm blowing
Through my life, through my life, through my life
through my life, through my life

Blowin’, blowin’, blowin’, blowin’
Ah, through my life
Oh

Hail soft storms of loving me
Let them play on my desires
Kiss me softly
Let your lightenin’ light my fire

Quiet storm blowing
Through my life, through my life
You’re just like a quiet storm blowing (blowing, blowing)
Through my life, through my life

Quiet storm blowing
Through my life
Quiet storm blowing (Oh, yeah)
Through my life

Oh

Shower me with your sweet love
I will bathe in ever drop
Through all the seasons
Let it pour and never stop

Quiet storm blowing
Through my life, through my life
You’re just like a quiet storm (blowing)
Warm and tender, through my life (oh through my life)

Quiet storm, you’re blowing
Through my life, through my life, through my life
Quiet storm blowing
Through my life

Blow, baby
Blow, baby
Blow, baby
Blow, baby

Oh yeah, quiet storm
yeah, quiet storm
Blow, baby
Blow, baby
Blow, baby
