Something Corporate soco

My junior year of college, the student council had completed their crowning glory of their time at Canisius College. After years of fighting administration at the Jesuit College, we were finally having a concert on campus. Not just any concert, but Something Corporate! It was 2004 and Something Corporate was gaining popularity after their song “If you See Jordan” was used often during episodes of the popular MTV show “Sorority Life”. I had already been a Something Corporate fan for a while, and had all their CDs. The fact that they were coming not only to Buffalo, but to Canisius College was EPIC. I remember the night of the concert everyone’s away messages on AIM were all Something Corporate Lyrics. My away message was quotes from one of my favorite songs by them, Hurricane. On this Music Monday I wanted to share a song that brings back so many great memories for me!

“Hurricane”
by Something Corporate

Shake down you make me break
For goodness sake
I think I’m on the edge
Of something new with you
Shout out don’t drown the sound
I’ll drown you out
You’ll never scream so loud
As I want to scream with you
Standing there with your smile blinding
Your eyes from seeing
My face as I’m dying
To figure out a girlBut she drifts so far away
I’m on her coast
So maybe I should stay
And map around your world
[Chorus]
So don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled me into your hurricane
Into your hurricaneStand up don’t make a sound
Your ears might bleed
There are sweet fluorescent enemies
That live inside of me
The world moves faster than I knew
Not fast enough to not creep up on you
And the space we put between
So pull me under your weather patterns
Your cold fronts and the rain don’t matter
Because the sun burns what I needed

[Chorus]
So don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled you into the hurricane
Into the hurricane

You don’t do it on purpose
But you make me shake
Now I count the hours ’til you wake
With your babies breath
Breathe symphonies
Come on sweet catastrophe

Well, maybe this time I can follow through
I can feel complete
Stop paying dues
Stop the rain from falling
Keep my ocean calm
This time I know nothing’s wrong

[Chorus]
So don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled me in and no,
You don’t say
“These currents are still killing me”
And you can’t explain
But the wind went and pulled me into your hurricane
Into your hurricane
Into your hurricane
