Like a Hurricane Lyrics

Once I thought I saw you
In a crowded hazy bar,
Dancing on the light
From star to star.
Far across the moonbeam
I know that's who you are,
I saw your brown eyes
Turning once to fire.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your...

    Absolutely one of the most amazing songs by NEIL YOUNG about getting into being absorbed in the light of a really nice girl that has the ''power of attraction'' to lift you of your feet. By seeing her as a dance of love, holding her center that started in a hazy bar to be captivated by the calmness of her eyes that fired a mutual feeling with kindness to share her love towards you that became fixated as ''one'' with her. Like being in the eye of a hurricane together, where it's calm in the center of the soul of her presence. Meanwhile all around you the emotions in your mind are spinning out of control being in her presence elevating the feeling with her to a higher level and out of the hazy bar. Trying to hold your center in the middle of the storm with her that is moving up towards the stars where she is dancing like a dream from star to star around your eyes while you are getting blown away and dusted out. Out there with your thoughts and feelings about her like being in a dream to the dreamer that could have been anyone to you to enjoy the experience with her that traveled out in the universe as a cosmic foggy trip of love that wants to love her.

    I saw her in a bar I was transfixed by her eyes....I was too shy to walk over to her. A week or two later in a small bar while I watching my friend sing in a band the same girl walked over to me and introduced herself as a friend of my friends girlfriend. Winding on a bit we got married had two boys and many years later divorced when rust set into our lives. After dating others I long for those brown eyes to turn once again to fire and walk through the wind and hold her again in my arms.

    Love at first sight. ... a man sees a girl in a bar and it's love at first sight. He is blown away by her and wishes to know her better. I can't be sure if he had the courage to approach her, or whether he just admires her from a distance and fantasizes about what it would be like to kiss her... ... either way it's beautiful... ❤️

    Have you ever locked eyes with someone and everything else seemed to spin out of control? There are no words. You can't find the words? You and the other person are suspended in time...a foggy moment... where all else might be chaos... in that moment.. you are lost in her/his eyes and all is perfect. So perfect..it blows you away!

    He is blown away. When he sees her in the bar. So much in love...afraid to even approach her and when he does he gets blown away. Poor guy doesn't have a chance.
