When Lightning Strikes

from by maheekats

This song is about two people who have reached their limit with their current lives. As they stop to ponder what to do next, they find themselves like thunder and lightning. But as they fall for one another, they're risking everything they've built in their lives so far. But as destiny goes, they go together.


She was smokin' on a broken holiday behind the bar
Back against the wall
She was waiting for another drop of rain to touch her face
Clouds will break and fall

Oh, her patterns are in the sky
Oh, she's risking all her life
Oh, thunder hits when lightning strikes

He was breathing to the beating of the club beside the hall
Phone against his face
He was wishing he could hear above the noise to what she said
Lines will drop and break

Oh, his patterns are in the sky
Oh, he's risking all his life
Oh, thunder hits when lightning strikes

Oh, thunder hits when lightning strikes
