she's so fine
Thunder Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It was early in the evening, I was waiting for a train
I was thinking to myself as I watched the pouring rain
I need love, but I don't know where to get it
Then underneath this big umbrella she walked in the waiting room
I just had to tell her though it might have been too soon
I need love and I think I might have found it

She was some kind of priestess with a black dress on
With her film star kind of features, she really turned me on

And if it takes until forever and a day, I've gotta make that woman mine
If I don't tell her then I'll wish my life away, she's so fine, she's so fine

I said don't misunderstand me, I didn't mean to make you blush
But when I got this feeling, I knew I had to rush
I need love, and you know I want to give it

I've been waiting for a lifetime for a woman like you
I know I'm walking on a fine line, but I've got to see it through

If I should pass away tonight while I'm asleep
At least I'll know I spoke my mind
I'm being driven by some other force that won't be denied, she's so fine

She's so fine

I've been waiting for a lifetime for a woman like you
I know I'm walking on a fine line, but I've got to see it through, through

She's so fine, she's so fine, she's so fine




Ooh, I took one look at you baby, babe it feels so good inside
She's so fine, makes me feel good...

Probably one of the most underrated British Rock Bands that for some reason never made it to the big time. Such a pity after all their endless touring and quality albums.

I love the Backstreet Symphony album...it's got the riffs, the vocals and the lyrics...all the ingredients that make a classic rock CD. Thank goodness we still have this band around all these later...talent is so thin on the ground nowadays.
