Lyrics



There was a day I saw lightning

There was a day I saw lightning (I saw lightning)

Hey hey hey, saw lightning

Ho ho ho, saw lightning

He he he, saw lightning

Ha ha ha



Saw wind manes

Some mountains fall

Some temples fall

Dismal

Some floods coming

Children run

We got no more shelter, no more sun



Then it came to me in a flash of light

By the sycamore tree in the dead of night

The bottom bell and the longest day

The hardest wind and the fallen rain

Saw lightning, saw lightning, saw lightning

I held my head up

And it struck me down

Down to the ground

It struck me down, struck me down

Struck me down to the ground



There was a day I saw lightning

There was a day I saw lightning

Hey hey hey, saw lightning

Ho ho ho, saw lightning

He he he, saw lightning

Ha ha ha



[?]

Hold the sea

Everywhere I go

Sunny and go

Down low



Then it came to me in a flash of light

By the sycamore tree in the dead of night

The bottom bell and the longest day

The hardest wind and the fallen rain

Saw lightning, saw lightning, saw lightning

I held my head up

And it struck me down

Down to the ground

It struck me down, struck me down

Struck me down on the ground



Hey hey hey, saw lightning

Ho ho ho, saw lightning

He he he, saw lightning

Ha ha ha, saw lightning

Saw lightning, saw lightning, saw lightning



Lord, won't you take me and lead me to the light?

Lord, won't you take me and lead me to the light?

The Lord's gonna take me and leave me in the light

The Lord's gonna take me and leave me in the light



Then it came to me in a flash of light

By the sycamore tree in the dead of night

The bottom bell and the longest day

The hardest wind and the fallen rain

I saw lightning, saw lightning, saw lightning

I held my head up

And it struck me down

Down to the ground

It struck me down, struck me down

Struck me down on the ground



(I saw lightning

I saw lightning

I saw lightning

I saw lightning)

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
