"Hurricane" as written by Natalie Jane Imbruglia and Gary Clark....
It came on like a hurricane
And I don't understand
And it moved me
Like a slow dance

Still I don't understand
It pushed me like a tailwind
And I don't understand
And it came in

Through the back door
And I don't understand
Still I don't understand
You're all that I could need
And I'm falling on my knees

Hurricane
You pulled me out of the past
And landed me in today
Hurricane

You pulled me out of the past
And walked me into tomorrow
Hurricane

It picked me like a cherry
And I don't understand
And it killed me with the craving
Still I don't understand
It thrilled me to starvation

And I don't understand
And it stripped me ugly naked
And I don't understand
Still I don't understand

You're all that I could be
And I'm falling on my knees

    General CommentTo me, this song can be about nothing but love. That's the 'it'. Natalie really expresses what falling in love does to you, it can be a confusing thing that just comes up behind you before you have a moment to notice. Love is like a hurricane.

    General CommentIm a Christian, and when hearing this song, it made me think of it as the sin nature of life and how shes trapped in it.


    And moved it like a slow dance
    Still I don’t understand
    It pushed me like a tailwind
    And I don’t understand
    And it came in through the back door
    And I don’t understand
    ^ in my opinion, its referring to what sin does to her, how it can move her, in a way, but yet push her in a way to do things she can't help but do.

    It picked me like a cherry
    And I don’t understand
    And it killed me with the craving
    Still I don’t understand
    It thrilled me to starvation
    And I don’t understand
    And it stripped me ugly naked
    Still I don’t understand
    ^ Here referring as to sin found her, and wanted her, and she wanted it, but as all sin, we are all empty still when we have it in our lives, it doesn't fulfill us, and it just makes us feel littlier


    I believe the Hurricane coulda been God's grace pullin her out of what she is trapped in, which is her sin. And shes explaining how she can have so much sin, but God is all she needs, and she falls down on her knees for Him.


    but thats just how i take it..

    General CommentNatalie confirmed that this song is about God/religion. And Love, of course.

    I would say it describes her spiritual awakening.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a love that I've fallen into that is akin to a religious experience.
