Halsey - Hurricane

There's a place way down in Bed Stuy,
Where a boy lives behind bricks,
He's got an eye for girls of eighteen,
And he turns them out like tricks

I went down to a place in Bed Stuy
A little liquor on my lips
I let him climb inside my body
And held him captive in my kiss

And there's a storm you're starting now
And there's a storm you're starting now
And there's a storm you're starting

I'm a wanderess
I'm a one night stand
Don't belong to no city
Don't belong to no man
I'm the violence in the pouring rain
I'm a hurricane
Ha ah ah ha ah ah ah
I'm a hurricane
Ha ah ah ha ah ah ah
I'm a hurricane

I went down to a place in Brooklyn
Where you tripped on LSD
And I found myself reminded
To keep you far away from me

And there's a storm you're starting now
And there's a storm you're starting now
And there's a storm you're starting

I'm a wanderess
I'm a one night stand
Don't belong to no city
Don't belong to no man
I'm the violence in the pouring rain
I'm a hurricane
Ha ah ah ha ah ah ah
I'm a hurricane
Ha ah ah ha ah ah ah
I'm a hurricane

He says, "Oh, baby, beggin' you to save me.
Well lately, I like 'em crazy.
Oh, maybe, you could devastate me.
Little lady, come and fade me."

I'm a wanderess
I'm a one night stand
Don't belong to no city
Don't belong to no man
I'm the violence in the pouring rain

Come and fade me
Come and fade me
I'm a hurricane

“Hurricane” is a darkly produced track about avoiding attachments both to locations and lovers, and forming the appropriate persona. Originally from Halsey’s first EP, it also appears on the deluxe version of her debut album, Badlands. In an interview with Complex, she said “Hurricane” is about her friend Zach: “He was an older guy I was seeing. He lived in Brooklyn on Halsey Street.” Hurricane, mmm…is like the trippy song, I love this song. When I play this live, I like close my eyes and zone out super hard and kinda like for get that I’m on stage cause it’s so dreamy. It’s about a girl that kinda like falls for this guy who is gonna make things hard on her and is gonna take advantage of her, but she kinda ends up turning it around in the end and she says: “I’m a wanderess/I’m a one night stand/Don’t belong to no city/Don’t belong to no man.” So it’s kinda like her response to him, saying like you know, you can think you got me all you want, but I don’t belong to anyone but me. And umm you know I talk about Brooklyn, Brooklyn’s my place. That’s where Halsey comes from, Hurricane is a very special song to me and I love it. – Room 93 Spotify Commentary
