  • when the night lingers in the thunder and rain
    it's making me forget my name
    and everything I ever know
    and baby, when the night turns everything I love into war
    like nothing that I know is for sure
    and everything I ever kno-o-ow is so far from home

    I wanna know what love is all about
    but first I'm going up and then I'm going down
    suddenly it's like I never seen the sun before
    and do you see
    I wanna feel the lightening in my hand
    that underneath it all there's got to be a plan
    then I can understand what the hell I'm looking for

    somehow ended up in love
    but I can't believe I wanted this phenomena
    'cause I don't ever sleep at all
    stop now, stop you're leaving up again
    I can't believe I wanted this phenomena
    and I, I hardly need to call

    when the night lingers in the thunder and rain
    it's making me forget my name
    and everything I ever know
    and baby, when the night turns everything I love into war
    like nothing that I know is for sure
    and everything I ever kno-o-ow is so far from home

    I wanna cool my fever in the rain
    I'm burning like a moth attracted to the flame
    but better that I burn than slowly fade away
    and do you see
    I wanna feel the lightening in my hand
    that underneath it all there's got to be a plan
    then I can understand what the hell I'm looking for

    somehow ended up in love
    but I can't believe I wanted this phenomena
    'cause I don't ever sleep at all
    stop now, stop you're speeding up again
    I can't believe I wanted this phenomena
    and I, I hardly need to call

    when the night lingers in the thunder and rain
    it's making me forget my name
    and everything I ever know
    and baby, when the night turns everything I love into war
    like nothing that I know is for sure
    and everything I ever kno-o-ow is so far from home
    (repeat until end)
