"storm in a teacup" in lyrics

Miriam Yeung - Storm In A Teacup

verse1
My youth seemed to start from my loving you,
but I ended up disillusioned with love.
Ever since you lost your memory,

OdnoNo - To the Ocean

I'm seating in the middle of the river on the ancient, mouldy stone
I'm peacefully looking on your muddy waters-
All the troubles and hardships it's a storm in a teacup.
How much of useless garbage you carry,

Pyrokinesis - There is No Time of Love

(Firecrackers and claps)
In sips (gasping for air)
From a storm in my teacup
A clock hand biting

Roger Cicero - Shoot me to the moon already

Shoot me to the moon already
Let me go and say that was it
Or was it just another storm in a teacup?

NRKTK (Narkotiki) - Pogrom in a dining hall

Chorus (x4)
Storm in a teacup, pogrom in a dining hall
At first it's all right but then it's a bit awkward

The Fortunes - Storm in a Teacup

Brewin' up double
All those tiny little troubles
It's a storm in a teacup
It really doesn't matter

Mela Koteluk - Constantly Fluent

Constantly fluent
Pondering
After each storm in a teacup

Garbage - Hammering in my head

I'm leaving you behind
A flash in the pan
A storm in a teacup
A needle in a haystack

Júlio Saraiva - Song for my Widow

For them to put my shroud on
Baby, don't turn my death into
A storm in a teacup

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Storm In a Teacup

Oh, good God in Heaven Almighty, Heavens to Murgatroyd
We've got a cataclysmic situation developing
Someone get down here now
