Bad Weather

I remember she came up suddenly
And caught me by surprise
I turned the latch and found her
Awaiting just outside
She seemed to come from nowhere
With the wind and the blowing rain
She was bold as thunder
The night of the hurricane

Don't you want shelter from the bad weather?
Don't you want shelter
From the bad weather, babe?
Are you not fearful of the bad weather?
Don't you want shelter
From the bad weather, babe?

She was gone by the morning
I heard her leave downstairs
She wasn't afraid to brave the storm
Tearing it up out there
I ran to the window
But I could not call her name
She never let me know it
The night of the hurricane

Don't you want shelter from the bad weather?
Don't you want shelter
From the bad weather, babe?
Are you not fearful of the bad weather?
Don't you want shelter
From the bad weather, babe?

Like a storm filled with passion
She left her mark behind
And though I lost her long ago
She's still crossed my mind
She was gone by the morning
Will I never be the same?
For all my days I won't forget
The night of the hurricane

Don't you want shelter from the bad weather?
Don't you want shelter
From the bad weather, babe?
Are you not fearful of the bad weather?
Don't you want shelter
From the bad weather, babe?
