Struck By Lightning

As I stood upon that cliff
With my toes out in the air
I felt the wind blowing at my back
I couldnít say what brought me there

I could hear the siren call my name
From somewhere down below
It was telling me
Boy itís time to go

Then I was struck by lightning
And she didnít make a sound
I was caught up in a whirlwind
I was a long way down
I was walking on a tightrope
Before I fell to the ground
I was struck by lightning
And she didnít make a sound

Ever since I was five years old
It has always been the same
Iíve Searched the world for a fantasy
That I could not give a name

The cold obsession I devised
Somewhere in my youth
It stuck right in between
Me and the truth 

Then I was struck by lightning
And she didnít make a sound
I was caught up in a whirlwind
I was a long way down
I was walking on a tightrope
Before I fell to the ground
I was struck by lightning
And she didnít make a sound

She said nobody loves you
The way that I do
And nobody cares the way I care
And if you donít love me
Iíll walk away from you
But know that if I do
I wonít be there ... anymore Ö for you

So I took the noose from around my neck
And I slowly backed away
And I thanked the Lord for saving me
On that judgment day

I found what I was searching for
I guess I always knew her name
And it still scares me when I think
Of how close I came

Then I was struck by lightning
And she didnít make a sound
I was caught up in a whirlwind
I was a long way down
I was walking on a tightrope
Before I fell to the ground
I was struck by lightning
|And she didnít make a sound
