Lyrics

When The Lightning Strikes

I’ll never steal the show, but I once stole a car​​​​
I’m a hopeless case, a thief from the start​​​​
I take a lot of things, don’t give a second thought​​​
To the happiness I steal from my heart​​​​​

I don’t want to go home when the lightning strikes​​
I don’t want to be found stealing half my life​​​
Don’t want to be known when the lightning strikes​​
For stealing your joy, too​

Once again it seems, it’s all a mystery
The way you steal the dawn from blackest of skies
But then the thunder sounds, and it claims the ground
As if the crackling fire were sins prone to fly

I don’t want to go home when the lightning strikes​​
Don’t want to be found stealing half my life​​​
Don’t want to be known when the lightning strikes​​
For stealing your joy, too​​​​​​

I don’t want to go home, I want to go home​​​
I don’t want to go home, I want to go home​​​​
I don’t want to go home, I want to go home​​​​

I don’t want to go home when the lightning strikes​​
I don’t want to be found stealing all my life​​​
Don’t want to be known when the lightning strikes​​
For stealing your joy, too​​​​​​
I don’t want to go home​​​​​​
I don’t want to go home​​​​​
I don’t want to go home​​​​​​
I don’t want to go home​​​​​​

All these shadows start to roam
And every lonely heartache memory takes me home
