  • Stop me on the corner
    I swear you hit me like a vision
    I, I, I wasn't expecting
    But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go with it?
    Don't you blink you might miss it
    See we got a right to just love it or leave it
    You find it and keep it
    'Cause it ain't every day you get the chance to say

    Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
    It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
    Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
    Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

    I never seen it, but I found this love I'm undefeated
    You better believe, I'm gonna treat? better than anything I've ever had
    'Cause you're so damn beautiful read it
    It's time and deliver it let's seal it
    Boy we go together like peanuts and paydays and Marley and reggae
    And it ain't every day you get the chance to say

    Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
    It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
    Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
    Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

    Everything is like a white out, 'cause we shk shk shine down
    Even when when the light's out but I can see you glow
    Got my head up in the rafters, got me happy ever after
    Never felt this way before, ain't felt this way before

    I swear you hit me like a vision
    I, I, I wasn't expecting
    But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go?

    Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
    It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
    Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
    Shining how we want, brighter than the sun, yeah

    Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
    It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
    Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
    Shining how we want, brighter than the sun, yeah
    Brighter than the sun
    Brighter than the sun
    Brighter than the sun

    Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
    It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
    Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
    It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
    Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
    It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
    Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
    It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun Writer/s: COLBIE CAILLAT, RYAN TEDDER

  • Camille from Toronto, OhI love this song. It's so easy to listen to, so upbeat and I love the sound of Colbie's voice. The video shows her soft, sensual yet still gorgeous side and it's quite a breath of fresh air that she does not put screaming sexuality in your face. This song is a treat.
