Lightning

from by Keith Paine

lyrics

Face down underneath the streetlight
Got no direction home
Second-hand clothes / My borrowed skin
Can’t remember what’s my own

I pray for lightning to come down through me
It never came / never came
I pray for something better than myself

The street it stretch out like a crack
Where the pavement meets the sky
I walk for miles / I’m not going back
Go these visions in my mind / on my mind

I pray for lightning to come down through me
It never came / never came
I pray for something better than myself

And if I’m deaf and blind / You know my heart’s still beating
My blood is filled with a burning light
And if my soul’s on fire / You know it’s never empty
I’ll burn every word I ever tried

I pray for lightning to come down through me
It never came / never came
I pray for something better than myself
