I was born when I met you
Now I'm dying to forget you
And that is what I know
 Though I dreamed I would fall
Like a wounded cannonball
 Sinking down with my heart in tow

 Bright lights like white lightning
Who shot me down
Who will cut me down
I'm frozen in my bed till the day comes around
How I'm lost
How I'm found 

There's a man all alone  Telling me his friends are gone
That they've died and flown away
So I told him he was wrong 
That you friends are never gone
If you look to the sky and pray

 Bright lights like white lightning
Who shot me down
Who will cut me down
I'm frozen in my bed till the day comes around
How I'm lost
How I'm found 

 Someone told me a lie
 Someone looked me in the eye
And said time will ease your pain
But behold, when you fall
It's that same old cannonball  Coming back for your heart again

 Bright lights like white lightning
Who shot me down
Who will cut me down
I'm frozen in my bed till the day comes around
And it may come around  Until the day comes around
How I'm lost
How I'm found 

I was born when I met you
Now I'm dying to forget you
And that is what I know
