"Hurricanes" as written by John Henry Everard Hamson, Marcus Stephen Ratcliff and Davo Mckenzie Mcconville....
On the day that we left
The neighbourhood heart skipped a beat.
Oh the trees folded up and they shook as we drove down the street
I said to myself ‘We’re finally getting away,
When we come back I know that they’ll all look the same’

Now let’s go to our city
And we’ll change over night
We won’t think about leaving
Oh why would we ......... time?

A hurricane hit
While we were missing
Oh, can anybody tell me
Where the damage is?

On the day that we left the phones and the power were down
Oh the wind doubled up and it sand every boy in the town
You cried and you screamed played faith in the war
When it was done
The magic it left with the storm

Oh we moved to our city
And we changed all the night
We won’t think about leaving
Now why would we .......... time?

A hurricane hit
While we were missing
Oh can anybody tell me
Where the damage is?

Above our waistlines

Your not afraid to dig those fingernail in…

We don’t need our childhood
I’m so sure now I was there
By the time the winds have erased us
Oh I may aswell have lived here with you if anywhere

A hurricae hit
While we were missing
Oh can anybody tell me
Where the damage is
Above our waistline

Shes not afraid to dig those fingernails in…



i know some are wrong, if you can help, please do!!!

    General CommentOn the day that we left
    The neighbourhood heart skipped a beat.
    Oh the trees folded up and they shook as we drove down the street
    I said to myself ‘We’re finally getting away,
    When we come back I know that they’ll all look the same’

    Now let’s go to our city
    And we’ll change over night
    We won’t think about leaving
    Oh why would we, its too good a time

    A hurricane hit
    While we were missing
    Oh, can anybody tell me
    Where the damage is?

    On the day that we left the phones and the power were down
    Oh the wind doubled up and it slammed every door in the town
    You cried and you screamed played faith in the war
    When it was done
    The magic it left with the storm

    Oh we moved to our city
    And we changed all the night
    We won’t think about leaving
    Now why would we, its too good a time

    A hurricane hit
    While we were missing
    Oh can anybody tell me
    Where the damage is?

    Above the waistline, beneath my skin,
    you're not afraid to dig those fingernail in…

    We don’t need our childhood
    I’m so sure now I was there
    By the time the winds have erased us
    Oh I may aswell have lived here with you if anywhere

    A hurricane hit
    While we were missing
    Oh can anybody tell me
    Where the damage is

    Above the waistline, beneath my skin,
    Shes not afraid to dig those fingernails in…



    Just the bit in the second pre-chorus needs correcting, I know its not 'played faith in the war', doesnt sound right at all.

    The song itself is pretty self-explanatory, just about wanting to get away from somewhere you've been for a long time and starting anew.

    General CommentI think its slightly more than that, getting away, expecting where you left to remain forever the same, and finding that everything has changed, that you changed and now everything is differnt, but hey thats just me picking at it

    Lyric CorrectionOn the day that we left, the neighbourhood heart skipped a beat
    Oh, the trees folded up and they shook as we drove down the street
    I said to myself, "We're finally getting away
    When we come back I know that they'll all look the same"

    Now let's go to our city
    and we'll change over night
    We won't think about leaving
    Oh, why would we? It's too good a-time

    A hurricane hit while we were missing
    Oh, can anybody tell me where the damage is?

    On the day that we left, the phones and the power were down
    Oh, the wind doubled up and it slammed every door in the town
    You cried and you screamed 'til you put every faith in the wall
    so when it was done, the magic, it left with the storm

    Oh, we moved to our city
    and we changed all the night
    We won't think about leaving
    Now, why would we? It's too good a-time

    A hurricane hit while we were missing
    Oh, can anybody tell me where the damage is?
    Above my waistline, beneath my skin
    You're not afraid to dig those fingernails in

    We're turning to our childhood
    I'm so sure now I was there
    by the time the winds have erased us
    Oh, I may as well have lived here with you as anywhere

    A hurricane hit while we were missing
    Oh, can anybody tell me where the damage is?
    Above my waistline, beneath my skin
    She's not afraid to dig those fingernails in
