See the lightning strike across the house And all the fallow fields Of hearts that never yield the right of way See the lightning strike across my eyes Awake to what they see A flash, a family Lost upon the sea in a storm Now we hear the crickets call And hold the silence still While the distance brings a chill to our bones, to our bones See the lightning strike and then the fire We stand and watch it burn It's the only way we learn these days See the lightning strike across the fence That we didn't mean to build But it slowly rose until it stood in the way And we feel so lonely Could we be the only Human souls with a love so afraid, so afraid Oh we long to travel back to The crooked paths we hardly knew At the time when we were walking through in love, in love See the lightning strike and take your breath And everything is clear The thunder brings you fear but you stay See the lightning strike and you're a child And you're running just to see The world alive and free See the lightning strike across the house
