"Santa Ana Winds" as written by Frank Sullivan and Jim Peterik....
When the wind decides that it's time to ride
To spread a little hell through the heartland
It takes a good long toke then it blows the smoke, through the desert night
And the wings of fire, keep climbin' higher
Flames cuttin' hard through the homeland
It takes a mighty strong will to strip the chill from the desert night
You waken from your dream, by a siren's scream
Trapped by the walls that surround you
Then it's will to will, and you wonder still can you struggle free
In a thousand ways, when you turn the phrase
The wind's like a love of a woman (woman, woman, woman)
It takes a mighty mean bitch, some fire witch
To set the night on fire
And the Santa Ana wind's gonna have its way tonight
Nothing you can do's gonna change her mind
And ain't it a lot like love the way desire takes you in
And sparks the fire like the Santa Ana wind
Now the air is calm, and the heart grows numb
The ashes burnin' low in the heartland
Till again the wind starts closin' in to set the night on fire
And the Santa Ana wind's blowin' cross my heart tonight
Nothing you can do's gonna change her mind
And woman I want your love
I need that passion deep within
Like the ragin' fire needs the Santa Ana wind
And the Santa Ana wind's gonna take your life tonight
Nothing you can do's gonna change her mind
And ain't it a lot like love
The way desire takes you in
Swept away with the Santa Ana wind
