Hurricane Lyrics

Hadn't had a good time
Since you know when
Got talked into going out
With hopes you were staying in
I was feeling like myself for the first time
In a long time
'Til I bumped into some of your friends
Over there talkin' to mine

Then you...

    This song is all about a narrator struggling to deal with heartbreak.

    Verse 1:
    "Hadn't had a good time
    Since you know when
    Got talked into going out
    With hopes you were staying in
    I was feeling like myself for the first time
    In a long time
    'Til I bumped into some of your friends
    Over there talkin' to mine"

    Since "you know when" (when they broke up), he hadn't been able to have a good time. His friends eventually convinced him to go out to the bar to have some fun, but he hoped that this girl was not going out (they likely frequented this same bar together or they're in a small town area with few bars). As the night goes on, he begins to feel more like himself, but then he notices his friends are talking to some of the girl's friends.

    Chorus:
    "Then you rolled in with your hair in the wind
    Baby, without warning
    I was doing alright
    But just your sight had my heart storming
    The moon went hiding, stars quit shining
    Rain was driving, thunder, lightning
    You wrecked my whole world when you came
    And hit me like a hurricane
    Hit me like a hurricane"

    The narrator notices the girl come in to the bar and in his mind, it's a dramatic entrance. He was doing okay, but seeing her come in changes everything. The narrator sees her, and his feelings towards her, like a hurricane: sudden, powerful, and capable of major damage. He is unable to control his feelings when she's around, even though she has hurt him.

    Verse 2:

    "Knew it was gonna be a long night
    From the moment when
    We locked eyes over whiskey on ice
    Started talking bout us again
    If I woulda just layed my drink down
    And walked out
    I wouldn't be in my truck
    Driving us to your house"

    The narrator and the girl lock eyes after they both get their drink of choice (whiskey on ice) and start talking. The narrator knows he should have just put down his drink and walked out, but he didn't. Now he is in his truck with her, on the way to her house. As he's driving, he is sure this is will end badly, but he can't stop himself


    Verse 3:
    "You hit me category five
    With your smile
    Blew me away
    And girl, it ain't but midnight
    You done killed the lights
    Bent my heart back to your bedside"

    The girl has a significant effect on the narrator. All it took was a smile and he was "blown away". It's only midnight, fairly early for people who typically stay out late, and he's already back with her in her bed. With very little effort, he is in bed with her knowing she very well will probably hurt him again or make the same choices before that led to the last breakup.

    The chorus just repeats after this. Basically, this guy was really in love with this girl and when it went sour, it was very hard. He has not been able to get over her and misses her despite how much she hurt him, so when she comes back into his life by chance, it hits him "like a hurricane" and he can't help but go running back to her and into bed with her. At the same time, he knows that this all will probably go bad but he can't help it.
