Love Like Lightning

It's early in the morning and the radio is playing low
You're lying in my arms and a voice inside of me just says no
I'm trying to find the feeling remembering the love we used to know
Friends we hold on to but we all know that lovers come and go

There was a time when I thought all I wanted in this world was you
By the poetry I wrote you and the flowers I sent I thought you knew
People said give it one more try but you know this world is full of bad advice
Did you really think that love like lightning would ever strike us twice?
Did you really think that love like lightning would ever strike us twice?

How could you stop believing in me, darling it was just a bumpy ride
You let me down when I needed you; fair weather friend, you never tried
I thought you'd stand beside me but the heat of passion blinded my eyes
Love like lightning never strikes the same place twice
Love like lightning never strikes the same place twice

Your face in the moonlight looks like it's made out of stone
I'm feeling cold and empty and I hate feeling like I should have known
Let's not get tragic, let's just blame it on a bad roll of the dice
Love like lightning never strikes the same place twice
Love like lightning never strikes the same place twice

There's love inside me screaming, calling out my name but I don't hear
I told you that I cried, but I lied cause I never shed one tear
I'll wait for love I m sure of, I don't think lovers should pretend
Like our love, like lightning, you won't see me here again
Like our love, like lightning, you won't see me here again
