Her Eyes Aren’t the Only Body Part That’s Stormy, I’ll Bet

I don’t know exactly what kind of relationship the narrator has with this woman whose name is apparently not Wendy but the more unfortunately-connoted Windy, but if you actually listen to the lyrics, it’s clear that Windy is some kind of psychopath.

Who’s peeking’ out from under a stairway
Calling a name that’s lighter than air?
Who’s bending down to give me a rainbow?
Everyone knows it’s Windy
Who
s tripping down the streets of the city
Smilin’ at everybody she sees?
Who's reaching’ out to capture a moment
?
Everyone knows it’s Windy
And Windy has stormy eyes

That flash at the sound of lies
And Windy has wings to fly

Above the cloud (above the clouds!)
Clearly, Windy is a 60s-era Manic Pixie Dream Girl, though she might be hiding under stairway for the same reasons that earned her the name Windy.

All that said, however, I feel like this song would make a great soundtrack for, say, spinning in a field of daisies or skipping down the street on an April afternoon. You know — reaching out to capture a moment.

 No, wait — why is she bending over to give him a “rainbow”? What the hell is this song about, anyway?
