Hurricane

by Delphine Cherry, Rex Horan, and Sara Lee


Such an old soul
Tyesa looked after everyone
Getting people to work
Take kids to school.

She said, “if we’re together
On the first of the year,
Then we’ll be together
For the rest of the year.”

Thought I’d lost my soul,
Raging and angry
Found myself turning away
Felt like a hurricane got me.

Tyler saw good
In every bad situation
Never saw him sad
Such a happy kid

See him up on the roof
He was adventurous
Million dollar smile
Light up the world

Thought I’d lost my soul,
Raging and angry
Found myself turning away
Felt like a hurricane got me.
