  • Morning, it's another pure grey morning
    Don't know what the day is holding
    When I get uptight
    And I walk right into the path of a lightning bolt

    Sirens of an ambulance comes howling
    Right through the center of town and
    No one blinks an eye
    And I look up to the sky for the path of a lighting bolt

    Met her as the angels parted for her
    But she only brought me torture
    But that's what happens
    When it's you who's standing in the path of a lightning bolt

    Everyone I see just wants to walk with gritted teeth
    But I just stand by and I wait my time
    They say you gotta tow the line they want the water not the wine
    But when I see the signs I jump on that lightning bolt

    And chances, people tell you not to take chances
    When they tell you there aren't any answers
    And I was starting to agree
    But I awoke suddenly in the path of a lightning bolt

    Fortune, people talking all about fortune
    Do you make it or does it just call you
    In the blinking of an eye
    Just another passerby in the path of a lightning bolt

    Everyone I see just wants to walk with gritted teeth
    But I just stand by and I wait my time
    They say you gotta tow the line they want the water not the wine
    But when I see the signs I jump on that lightning bolt

    It was silent, I was lying back gazing skyward
    When the moment got shattered
    I remembered what she said
    And then she fled in the path of a lightning bolt Writer/s: Iain Denis Archer, Jake Kennedy
