Lightning Strikes

 

Lyrics

Life on telephones
Love on open roads
Into great unknowns
I stumble brightly

Indigo, breathless yet
I'll link to your regret
Sunflowers as teachers pets
Bent from lightning

I'll bet
I'll bend for you

Shadows give your light to me
Shadows give your light to me

In the ways the city
(In the ways, it)
Pours itself out
You can make this happen
(You can make it)
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen
(You can make it)
All right now

Eastern days, I'm unafraid
'Cause love to me is such a game
That I believe I can't embrace
The dreams of lovers

Eastern days, I'm unafraid
'Cause love to me is such a game
That I believe I can't embrace
The dreams of lovers

I'll bend for you

Shadows give your light to me
Shadows give your light to me

In the ways the city
(In the ways, it)
Pours itself out
You can make this happen
(You can make it)
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen
(You can make it)
All right now

Zen baby, lightning strikes
The same heart, but never twice
Zen baby, we've got to fight
For what's real and what becomes the night

In the ways the city
(In the ways, it)
Pours itself out
You can make this happen
(You can make it)
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen
(You can make it)
All right now

You can make this happen
You can make this happen
All right now
