Song Explanation: “It Was A Dark & Stormy Night”

"It Was A Dark and Stormy Night" by Five Iron Frenzy (2011)

This is the ninth of several blog posts explaining the songs we wrote on Engine of A Million Plots. The ninth song on the list is “It Was A Dark & Stormy Night.” You can find the words to the song and Reese’s explanation below. Please leave your thoughts and questions in the comments. And don’t forget the original disclaimer of this series. If one of these songs means something completely different to you than what Reese says, that’s probably the better explanation. 


Five Iron Frenzy: “It Was A Dark & Stormy Night” 

Full album available for purchase at iTunes and at our online store.


It Was A Dark And Stormy Night

It was a dark and stormy night last night,
bitter dark.
Rain fell in torrents,
stabbing it’s ghosts through the cold,
and straight through our hearts.

I’ve been waiting,
in halfhearted sleep,
For a promise I half meant to keep.
Just for hoping that hope still flies.
Wipe the sleep out of our sleeping eyes.

Fog that is lifting,
the spectre of dreams we once had,
speaks into the night.
Slumber is over,
sunlight is streaming through
come into the light.

I know,
Hope has not forgotten me.
I know,
I’m waking from the longest dream.

Explanation from Reese Roper:

This was the first song we wrote with the new band. Scott and I emailed back and forth for months, trying to nail down a method for our new songwriting. The new band had to tread lightly on the Christianity, and as I explained in Into Your Veins, to not say something dishonest. I seriously wrote about 18 versions of this, hated them all, and when I got to New York to record it for our Kickstarter- REWROTE THE ENTIRE SONG IN THE CAR, on the way to the studio. My workaround for making a song be about God but keeping it cryptic enough for our Atheist friends, was to capitalize the word Hope. Yeah, that’s right, my mom was an English teacher. Here’s the joke that goes with that:

What better way to Kickstart a band, than by writing a song about coming back from a long sleep? That, some really good survival skills, and a couple of spoonfuls of mayonnaise – and yeah, hope really does still fly.
