Cool as the water melting from the winter snows
You are the island I've been looking for
I don't know where you come from
But I can feel you comin' on
You're a storm inside my soul
That's ragin' out of control

Call the wind out
Call out the thunder
Oh lightning, only you can will the weather
I said come on
Won't ya come on?
Lightning you're mine

Tonight, tonight
You caught me while I was sleepin'
Restin' from a heavy run
I saw you in your evening gown
You were lighting up the sky
No matter what tomorrow brings
Lightning, your mine tonight
Woah, lightning your mine tonight

Crack the horizon
Only you can split the night
Then comes your mother cloud to take you away
Another wind will dry me
And the sun will make me warm
But to me my life will always be
The calm before the storm

[Chorus:Repeat x2]
