about

An imagination of a family fleeing a winter storm in the North-Eastern USA ("You can't shoot a hurricane with a gun"), this track has added poignancy when the lyrics are applied to the War in Ukraine. With Russia taking on the role of the North-East wind, the vibe becomes even more urgent and threatening.

lyrics

North-Easter

You know the North-Easter brings the snow
Pack up your bags and go, go go go
You gotta fly, as far away as you can
It makes a meal of a hungry man

Take your belongings and your wife and kids by your side
Make sure they're buckled in for the ride
Get out of here, fortune never favoured the brave
Or you'll be spinning in an early grave

Summer's gone, dwindled into the past
Those autumn memories couldn't last
And just when you were searching
For the welcome of a better day
North-Easter gonna blow you away

Get out of bed, and get yourself on the run
You can't shoot a hurricane with a gun
Load up your truck, put your pedal to the floor
North-Easter doesn't want you here no more

And just when you were searching
For the welcome of a better day
North-Easter gonna blow you away

And just when you were searching
For the welcome of a better day
North-Easter gonna blow you away
And just when you were searching
For the welcome of a better day
North-Easter gonna blow you away
