(5 measure introduction)

I went to work for her that summer
A teenage kid so far from home
She was a lonely widow woman
Hell bent to make it on her own
We were a thousand miles from nowhere
Wheat fields as far as I could see
Both needin' somethin' from each other
Not knowin' yet what that might be

'Til she came to me one evening
Hot cup of coffee and a smile
In a dress that I was certain
She hadn't worn in quite a while
There was a difference in her laughter
There was a softness in her eyes
And on the air there was a hunger
Even a boy could recognise

She had a need to feel the thunder
To chase the lightnin' from the skies
To watch the storm with all its wonder
Raging in her lover's eyes
She had to ride the heat of passion
Like a comet burnin' bright
Rushing headlong in the wind
Out where only dreams had been
Burnin' both ends of the night

That summer wind was all around me
Nothin' between us but the night
And when I told her that I'd never
She softly whispered that's alright
And then I watched her hands of leather
Turn to velvet in a touch
There's never been another summer
When I have ever learned so much

We had a need to feel the thunder
To chase the lightnin' from the skies
To watch the storm with all its wonder
Raging in each other's eyes
We had to ride the heat of passion
Like a comet burnin' bright
Rushing headlong in the wind
Out where only dreams had been
Burnin' both ends of the night

(instrumental - 6 measures)

I often think about that summer
The sweat, the moonlight and the lace
And I have rarely held another
When I haven't seen her face
Every time I pass a wheat field
Watch it dancin' with the wind
Although I know it isn't real
I just can't help but feel
Her hungry arms again

She had a need to feel the thunder
To chase the lightnin' from the skies
To watch the storm with all its wonder
Raging in her lover's eyes
She had to ride the heat of passion
Like a comet burnin' bright
Rushing headlong in the wind
Out where only dreams had been
Burnin' both ends of the night

Rushing headlong in the wind
Out where only dreams had been
Burnin' both ends of the night
