"Hurricane" as written by and Lisa Loeb....
Skeleton boy by the side of the road
He warned me, he told me
He said: There's this woman, she's a hurricane
She will heal your heart up, she is hurrying.
He said, don't look for holidays
Don't look, just run away
Go suffocate, and choke your own cry
Go where the water, where the water, seeps from the pink sky
But behead this woman, she's a hurricane
She will heal your heart up, she is hurrying
Remember your reflection in a pool, in a puddle

And the leaves sped top-speed towards me and my image was muddled
I'm a lightheaded wonder, she said
Don't you see my mind slow down?
I'm a lightheaded wonder, don't you see my mind slow down?
Slow down

I've compassion for strangers
An affinity for danger
Won't you be my sacrifice?

I'm a lightheaded wonder, don't you see my mind slow down for you?
And for you?
No you're a headless woman, you're a hurricane
You will heal my heart up?
No, I will heal my own heart up, because you are hurting
Cause I'm a sunburn slap upon your arm, I'll twist you til you break
And you're a hurricane

    General CommentQuote from Lisa Loeb:

    "It's really cinematic. I like how the strings give it that added sense of desolation and drama. I'm writing from several points of view here. "Hurricane" is about this witchlike woman. The Skeleton Boy on the road has been ravished -- you don't know if it's physically or emotionally -- and he warns the listener about this woman, who will tell you that she can heal your heart. But he's tried her healing, and he knows now the only way to do that is to heal it yourself."

    General CommentLisa Loeb is good because she does not narrate all of her songs. instead, she tells stories.
