lyrics

here's the story of hurricane girl
when she blew in to town it was heard round the world
no maiden who met her untangled her spell
she was rare, she could wear it so well

like fire from beyond she was hotter than hell
though the men never saw her, we pictured her well
and the children would flock to a space at her feet
to hear her tell stories of love in the streets

and i'll tell you how everyone met her
i'll tell you the way that she leaves in the end
she'll pull out your heart if you let her
but i'll tell you one thing we've none of us seen her again

her voice it would carry for miles on the wind
in a couple of days, well she had us all pinned
in a knot round her sly little finger
had a voice like a holiday singer

now we're still writing songs for her years down the line
she was clear as the water but sweet as the wine
no one could challenge her, she had her place
yet a shadow hid under her pretty young face

and i'll tell you how everyone met her
i'll tell you the way that she leaves in the end
she'll pull out your heart if you let her
but i'll tell you one thing we've none of us seen her again

now early one morning we rose from our beds
found a bell on her pillow in place of her head
now we've given up hope for the letter she'd write
was it all just a dream on a hot summer's night?

and i'll tell you how everyone met her
i'll tell you the way that she leaves in the end
she'll pull out your heart if you let her
but i'll tell you one thing we've none of us seen her again
