Lightning Strike - Lyrics:
Don't you leave me all undone
Don't you leave me in a foolish heap in the floor
Don't you leave me with the light on
I got a hunger that a need your attention for

You've been getting me fired up
Then you ignore me while you're fooling around with your friends
Don't you leave me on the back seat
Don't you leave with my engine running again

Are you ready for the big show?
Cause I've been waiting for it all of my life
I see a storm on the horizon
And I am ready for the lightning to strike

*Are you ready for the lightning to strike?*

Don't you leave me in the morning
Don't you leave me with this half drunk bottle of wine
That's not metaphor for what we have
More a metaphor for what we could be leaving behind

I'm the stranger you befriended
- On a night when you needed some warmth in your veins
Now are you ready to be needed?
Are you ready for the hurricane heading our way?

Are you going to make your own choice?
Are you gonna light 'em up tonight?
Cause you're the storm on my horizon
I am ready for the lightning to strike

*Are you ready for the lightning to strike?*

Are you gonna light 'em up tonight?
I'm reaching out for you

I don't believe this is an ending
I don't believe it we're just standing in the pouring rain
You wouldn't dare except the cliche
You wouldn't stop me when I just got up the courage to say;

That I am ready for the big show
And I've been waiting for it all of my life
Don't treat your heart like a broken bottle
You can't make it with a love that's not right

Are you calling out in your own voice?
Don't turn your back on me tonight
Cause I'm the storm on your horizon
Are you ready for the lightning to strike?
