Lyrics: 

Stormy waters

V1
choppy water
distant shores
open vessel
broken oars

chilly water
threatening fjords
broken compass
lost once more...
shaking at my core

C
stormy water
of angry seas
thrashing out
so violently
stormy water
is all I see
everywhere
now drowning me

V2
churning water
frigid deep
missing lifeboat
restless sleep

rising water
whitecaps leap
haunting nightmares
engulf me...
dark wild and free

C
stormy water
of angry seas
thrashing out
so violently
stormy water
is all I see
everywhere
now drowning me

B
treading water
I try to wait
for calm seas
to prevail
hoping one day
for better fate
with clear skies
to raise sails

C
stormy water
of angry seas
thrashing out
so violently
stormy water
is all I see
everywhere
now drowning me

You really know how to get the most out of a few words per line! It's almost like you're describing an establishing scene in a movie script. Well done!
