Waterproof

As the world started coming out of the pandemic, Lisa received a troubling diagnosis from her doctor - she was a Type 1 Diabetic. To those not aware, Type 1 Diabetes is a life sentence to a world where one has to constantly monitor one's blood sugar, only eat certain foods, and take insulin daily to keep the blood sugar levels where they need to be. There are quite a few well-known Type 1 Diabetics, such as Nick Jonas and Neil Young, as well as newer artists such Valerie June and Crystal Bowersox. Like them, Lisa was determined not to let the diagnosis prevent her from reaching her goals and dreams in life, and "Waterproof" is a testament to not letting obstacles in life stop one from going after them.

NO RAIN, NO STORM, NO TEARS UNSEEN

CAN HOLD ME DOWN OR DROWN MY DREAMS

MY HAIR GETS WET, MY SOUL GETS CLEAN

I WANT IT ALL, NO IN BETWEEN

 

U CAN SAIL ME ‘CROSS AN OCEAN

CATCHIN’ TEARDROPS IN MY HAND

U CAN ROLL ME IN UR TODAL WAVE ‘TIL IM FACE DOWN IN THE SAND

U CAN WASH AWAY MY MAKEUP

BUT U CANNOT STRIP MY TRUTH

MAY SPIRIT STANDS AGAINST THE STORM

MY DREAMS ARE-

 

WATERPROOF (Waterproof)

WATERPROOF (Waterproof)

HOLD MY BREATH, WADE THRU THE FLOOD

AGAINST THE COLD, ITS IN MY BLOOD

A MERMAID ALWAYS MAKES A SPLASH

MY TALE BE TOLD, MY WAVES WILL CRASH

 

U CAN SAIL ME ‘CROSS AN OCEAN

CATCHIN’ TEARDROPS IN MY HAND

U CAN ROLL ME IN UR TODAL WAVE ‘TIL IM FACE DOWN IN THE SAND

U CAN WASH AWAY MY MAKEUP

BUT U CANNOT STRIP MY TRUTH

MAY SPIRIT STANDS AGAINST THE STORM

MY DREAMS ARE-

 

WATERPROOF (Waterproof)

STORM SURGE, BUT AFTER ALL

I’LL BE LIVING PROOF

WHEN THEY SEE ME STANDING TALL

I’LL BE LIVING PROOF

THAT I’M WATERPROOF

 

U CAN SAIL ME ‘CROSS AN OCEAN

CATCHIN’ TEARDROPS IN MY HAND

U CAN ROLL ME IN UR TODAL WAVE ‘TIL IM FACE DOWN IN THE SAND

U CAN WASH AWAY MY MAKEUP

BUT U CANNOT STRIP MY TRUTH

MAY SPIRIT STANDS AGAINST THE STORM
