Lyrics



It's about that time when I gotta throw lightning

I coulda been something without you now

It's about that time when I gotta do something

Gotta be like lightning

Be somebody new now



Like lightning



I know my way back

I've seen that sky collapse

I've heard that thunder clap

I've seen that lightning crack

I know my way home

I'll mend those broken bones

I've seen that lightning crack



Don't just think about yourself

(Get some help) Go get some help

(Coming for you) They're coming for you

Don't just think about yourself

(Need to get help) You should get some help

(Coming for you) They're coming for you



It's about that time when I gotta throw lightning

I could've been something without you now

It's about that time when I gotta do something

Gotta be like lightning

Be somebody new now



Lightning



Under a setting sun

I will not be undone

My day has just begun

Come here, break me off some



Under a setting sun

I will not be undone

Our day has just begun

Oh



Don't just think about yourself

(Get some help) Get some help

(Coming for you) They're coming for you

Don't just think about yourself

(Need to get help) Just get some help

(Coming for you) They're coming for you

Out of the blue



You should think about yourself

You should get some help

They're coming for you

(Be somebody new) Be somebody new



You should think about yourself

You should get some help

Be somebody new



It's about that time when I gotta throw lightning

I could've been something without you now

It's about that time when I gotta do something

Gotta be like lightning

Be somebody new now

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.
