Neil Young - 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 eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

I am just a dreamer,
but you are just a dream,
You could have been
anyone to me.
Before that moment
you touched my lips
That perfect feeling
when time just slips
Away between us
on our foggy trip.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

You are just a dreamer,
and I am just a dream.
You could have been
anyone to me.
Before that moment
you touched my lips
That perfect feeling
when time just slips
Away between us
on our foggy trip.

You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

  62. Jaime Simpson

    He yearned for her but she wasn't able to b nothing but a memory that became a mirage that seemed so real. When he tried to reach out it was like a dream because he never could get her within his grip because he would get blown away by the storm . That's what I get from it when I listen to it

    Matthew butler

    Jaime Simpson
    There’s no point in crossing metaphors with reality unless you want to use all metaphors (the song)

  63. Johan Sterk

    I was once working as a scientist on a German ice-breaker research vessel in the high Arctic Ocean, 79° N latitude, the ship bursting its way through the pack-ice. There was a bar on board, called Zillertal bar, and one 'night' (it was light 24/24) there were only three people in the bar. A pretty young German brunette with wonderful doe-like brown eyes and an avalanche of amazing and ambrosial medium-chestnut auburn-highlighted hair, much like the hairdo of a mermaid or a siren as depicted so many times in old books and (pre-raphaelite) paintings. I later learned that in fact she was born not all that far away from the Lorelei rock ...Then there was a young Dutchman who manned the music machine, and my humble self. The Dutchman played some horrible crap 'the bitch won't blow' and 'fuck da bitch'-stuff, rap played at way too high and annoying a volume. This angered the woman and since the Dutchman turned macho and refused to turn off this crap, she just sat there, slit-eyed, captivating, so pretty and even more so when angry. I, too, started complaining and the Dutchman, outnumbered now, finally gave in and disappeared, a rather unhappy camper. I played this song, like a hurricane, in her honour, albeit beyond her knowing. Granted, it was not a crowded nor was it a hazy bar, but I did see her dainty brown eyes turn to fire and I was 'getting blown away'. 'Far across the moonbeam I know that's who you are ...'. I have long since lost contact with this enigmatic woman, in whose eyes it was far easier drowning than being rescued. Her name is not important here, but in my mind I think of her as an Isolde, as in Isolde of the White Lands, Ruler of the ice, reminiscent of the awesome environment in which we were afloat at the time, atop 5 kilometres of water, the deepest regions of the Fram Strait, Hausgarten .... I always think back of her when I play this song, and I play it many times, and will remember her until my last day, or until the day that my memory fades away ... I am just a dreamer, while she, however, was more than just a dream.

    Tony Goodman

    Cool story. I too think back to a certain red hair girl in 1985, I know she's still alive. Peace

  64. Johan Sterk

    As an avid record collector I wanted all the 7' versions of this song that exist with picture sleeve. These are a German, two Japanese (commercial and promo), a French, and two Spanish releases (commercial and promo). Records which are among the most treasured jewels in my collection.

  65. Ralph Marrone

    This song contains my favorite guitar solos. They may not be technically brilliant but they bleed emotion, yearning, anger, and despair.

  66. Johan Geist

    I want to love you but I’m getting blown away.

  67. Tony Martinez

    Wow what a Triste Cancion de Amor...

  68. Gene Brimage

    “I want to love you but I’m getting blown away”

  69. Angelo Catapang

    i'm in a trance with this song.stone cold sober of course without any help from hallucinogenics at all.

  70. art vallejos

    I was Born to Rock I'll never be an Opera Star

  71. Bazahaza

    Heard this for the first time today on Radio 6, I thought it sounded like the Flaming Lips was surprised to see my search come up with Neil Young, I have only listened to Harvest. Awesome song can't believe I've gone this long without hearing this masterpiece. That guitar solo is sooo good.

  72. Anna Vajda

    You could have been anything to me but she was a hurricane?

  73. Uzi Azad

    Classic and nothing else!

    Wilfried Sterk

    Woe betide anyone who claims differently!!!

    Uzi Azad

    Wilfried Sterk couldn’t agree more!

  74. Ernie Scott

    This is the song I was listening to when I drove my hovaround into the Grand Canyon. I almost drowned,thank God for airbag's.

  85. So Pe

    Anyone got blown Away from this powerful guitarsong in 2019??❤what a masterpiece...

    james richards

    this and 'southern man' are both epics, but then so are 'old man' & 'heart of gold.'
    prelude's version of 'after the goldrush' however, is superior to neil's version, in my opinion.

    SPA photo

    mate its been around since 1976!

    james richards

    take a look & listen to this old man's life music, once a young man, especially from the 70's.
