"Hurricane J" as written by and Craig Finn Franz Nicolay....
Jesse, I'm not joking around.
I see the crowd you're hanging with.
Those kids don't seem positive.
Don't all the cigs make you tired?
You know I'll never ask you to change.
I'll only ask you to try.

I know you're gonna do what I know you're gonna do.
But twenty-two and banging around in restaurants
Isn't that much prettier than banging around in bars.
Why do you keep going to his car?

I don't want this to stop.
I want you to know.
I don't want you to settle.
I want you to grow.
Forget all the boys that you met at the harbor.
They're too hard already.
They'll only get harder.

Jesse, let's go for a ride.
I know a place that we could stop.
I know a place that we could drink and kiss for a while.
I know a place that always makes you smile.
I know you're gonna say what I know you're gonna say.
I know you'll look around at the ground.
I know you'll probably cry.
You're a beautiful girl and you're a pretty good waitress.
But Jesse I don't think I'm the guy.

I don't want this to stop.
I want you to know.
I don't want you to settle.
I want you to grow.
Forget everything that I showed you this summer.
You're too hard already.
You'll only get harder.

But they didn't name her for a saint.
They named her for a storm.
So how is she supposed to think about
How it's gonna feel in the morning?

She said if heaven's hypothetical
And if the cigs keep you warm.
Then how is she supposed to think about
How it's gonna move in the morning?

About how it's gonna move in the morning?
About how it's gonna move in the morning?

Hurricane Jesse's gonna crash into the harbor this summer.
She don't want to wait til she gets older.
Hurricane Jesse's gonna crash into the harbor this summer.
She don't want to wait.
She said it only gets harder

    Jessie I'm not joking around
    I see the crowd you're hanging with and those kids don't seem positive
    Don't all the cigs make you tired?
    You know I'll never ask you to change I'll only ask you to try

    I know you're gonna do what I know you're gonna do
    But 22 and banging around in restaurants isn't that much prettier than banging around in bars
    And why do you keep going to his car

    I don't want this to stop
    I want you to know
    I don't want you to settle
    I want you to grow
    Forget all the boys that you met at the harbor
    You're too hard already.
    You'll only getting harder

    Jessie let's go for a ride
    I know a place that we can stop
    I know a place that we can drink and kiss for a while
    I know a place that always makes you smile

    I know you're gonna say what I know you're gonna say
    I know you'll at the ground
    I know you'll probably cry
    You're a beautiful girl

    You'll only get harder

    They didn't name her for a saint
    They named her for a storm
    So how's she supposed to think about how it's gonna feel in the morning

    She said, if heaven's hypothetical, and if the cigs keep you warm,
    then how's she supposed to think about how it's gonna move in the morning.
    Man how it's gonna move in the morning.
    Man how it's gonna move in the morning.

    Hurricane Jess, she's gonna crash into the harbor this summer
    She don't want to wait 'til she gets older
    Hurricane Jess, she's gonna crash into the harbor this summer
    She don't want to wait
    She said, "it only gets harder"

    Lyric CorrectionAlso;
    In "And those kids don't see positive" it should be "seem positive"
    In "You know I never ask you to change, I only ask you to try" the "I"s are "I'll"s
    The first "How it's gonna move in the morning" should be "feel in the morning"

    General CommentCraig Finn said on the BBC Radio 1 Punk Show with Mike Davies that this song was about the relationship between a young waitress and an older restaurant manager, and who really has the upper hand in the relationship.
