So there I stood, square on my side of the great divide
A message came across a void 
And for the first time in my life
I'm awake, I'm alive
I thought I was immune to this 
Till I felt the static charges in the air
I touch you; you're a live wire
You're the raw fire burning in my heart
And it took me by surprise; that's no lie
You know you are; you are a sharp shock to my system 
A spark, a real shock
You know you are; you are a sharp shock to my system
You start; I can't stop
You taught me how to listen; shock to my system
My soul, my skin; you plug me in 
And all of my pain is gone just like it never was
For the first time in my life, I know what I feel 
Now every time we touch I'm caught off my guard
That's no lie
You know you are; you are a sharp shock to my system 
A spark, a real shock
You know you are; you are a sharp shock to my system
You start; I can't stop
You taught me how to listen; shock to my system
Shock to my system
Shock to my system
You know you are; you are a sharp shock to my system
You start; I can't stop...
