I used to be the lucky one
My only task's to bask in the sun
And my golden years came so suddenly
Now I just try to pretend it doesn't torture me

Losing all I ever wanted
Learning what I really need
I made lightning in a bottle
But I forgot the recipe

If you had seen my golden hair
Falling down around my shoulders
Beg you to done for me whatever I ask of you
Now when you look at me I feel you seeing through

I want to talk, come back to me
And why didn't I grab a hold and see
Oh, the days I spent, lying in the sun
Praying for some way to make a little fun

Losing all I ever wanted
Learning what I really need
I made lightning in a bottle
But I forgot the recipe

My golden years came so suddenly
Now I just try to pretend it doesn't torture me
Losing all I ever wanted
Learning what I really need
I made lightning in a bottle
But I forgot the recipe

Oh, I made lightning in the bottle
But I forgot the recipe
