The Lightning Strike by Snow Patrol


What if this storm ends and I don't see you

As you are now ever again?

The perfect halo of gold hair and lightning

Sets you off against the planet's last dance

 

Just for a minute the silver forked sky

Lit you up like a star that I will follow

Now it's found us like I have found you

I don't want to run just overwhelm me

 

What if this storm ends and leaves us nothing

Except a memory a distant echo?

I want pinned down I want unsettled

Rattle cage after cage until my blood boils

 

I want to see you as you are now

Every single day that I am living

Painted in flames all peeling thunder

Be the lightning in me that strikes relentless

 

What if this storm ends and I don't see you

As you are now ever again?

The perfect halo of gold hair and lightning

Sets you off against the planet's last dance

 

Just for a minute the silver forked sky

Lit you up like a star that I will follow

And now it's found us like I have found you

I don't want to run just overwhelm me

 

From here the caravans are kid's toys

And I can hold them all in my palm

I watch the sea creep round the corner

It connects the dots from here to you

The sunlight burning through the loose flags

Painted high on white church walls

I chase my blood from brain to thumped heart

Until I'm out of breath for trying

 

Worry not everything is sound

This is the safest place you've found

The only noise beating out is ours

Lacing our tea from honey jars

 

These accidents of faith and nature

They tend to stick in the spokes of you

But every now and then the trend bucks

And you're repaired by more than glue

 

Worry not everything is sound

This is the safest place you've found

The only noise beating out is ours

Lacing our tea from honey jars

 

Why don't you rest your fragile bones?

A minute ago you looked alone

Stop waving your arms you're safe and dry

Breathe in and drink up the winter sky

 

Slowly the day breaks apart in our hands

And soft Hallelujahs flow in from the church

The one on the corner you said frightened you

It was too dark and too large to find your soul in

 

Something was bound to go right sometime today

All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us

It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained

It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing

That we could see for miles and miles

 

And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth

When you held onto me like I was your little life raft

Please know that you were mine as well

Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears

And spread out into shapes like salad bowls

And basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

 

As motionless cars rust on driveways and curbs

You take off your raincoat and stretch out your arms

We both laugh out loud and surrender to it

The sheer force of sky and the cold magnet earth

 

Something was bound to go right sometime today

All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us

It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained

It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing

That we could see for miles and miles

 

And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth

When you held onto me like I was your little life raft

Please know that you were mine as well

Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears

And spread out into shapes like salad bowls

And basins and buckets for bailing out the flood
