    Dave's girlfriend? His dog? I've always thought that this was a cool song, but wondered who it was written for. Any info?

    LOL. I know the song. The comment about the dog threw me off. I think it's obvious it's for a girl, but seeing as how Dave's relationship life has always been a secret for the most part, i can't imagine anyone ever knowing the anser to the question.

    HINA is one of the only good tunes on Skyscraper IMO.

    HINA is an acronym for:
    Horny
    Incorrigible
    Native
    American

    It refers to DLR's preferred type of woman.

    Isn't she the mooooooon queen?

    Great song. One of the best on Skyscraper.
    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    DLR: It was like a stand off in a Chuck Norris movie. We each had the laser dot on everybody's forehead waiting for the other guy to blink. Except for Wolfie, he had a Super Soaker ...

    HINA


    Those eyes burn holes
    Into the starry night
    And when her sleepy eyes
    Are open wide
    You can fairly dance beneath her light
    And I'd love to get to know the natives
    But I'm only flesh and blood
    She'll share your joys
    But not your sorrows
    Mistress of the coming flood.

    Hina
    Cool upon the silent sea
    Isn't she the moon queen

    Hina
    Whispering, In my dreams
    You must come back to me

    And the tides rise and a distant sigh
    Falls on deaf ears
    Her vision makes you every inch a king
    King for a million years
    And she loves you when you're leavin'
    And she'll leave you if you stay
    She says...
    "Don't tell me that you love me
    You'll hate me for hearning it
    When I drift away."

    Hina
    I can hear you softly cry
    Your storms and lullablies

    Hina
    I'll whisper in your dreams
    Till you come back to me.

    Come back
    But she will never stay
    Come back
    And you must never wait...,
    Never wait. Never wait. Never wait

    I recall a friend telling me in '88 that HINA was a reference to the legend of the "Sirens". The mermaids that would sing to sailors. The sailors would find their songs irresitable and swim out towards them, only to be taken under the sea, never to return again. Good as any other theory I guess.
    Everybody wants some...
