"Lightning Is My Girl" as written by and Melissa Auf Der Maur....
Goin' let the lightning
Tuck me into my bed
Gonna let that man
Let him into my head
I'll see you in my dreams
Electrified and cherry red

And I'll, meet you on the corner
Under true blue skies
Seeking cherry colo
As the bridging wine
To bring you to my lips, one more time

Kissing on the corner
I know it's a dream,
It's better than day time,
'Cause dream time lasts forever
Swarming on the corner,
Bringing rain, dream time is over
â??Til lightning strikes again

And I'll, meet you on the corner
Under true blue skies
Seeking cherry cola
As the bridging wine
To bring you to my lips, one more time

The sun has crept in,
Away with the night
Good-bye to my lover
I'm back in bed
But lightning is my girl,
And promises me
To bring me to that corner, again and again

And I'll, meet you on the corner
Under true blue skies
Seeking cherry cola
As the bridging wine
To bring you to my lips, one more time

    General CommentI forget how I first heard this song, but there was a part of me that loved it, and a part of me that hated it. I love the way she sounds, but the lyrics. They're just nagging or something.

    "Gonna let the lightning
    Tuck me into my bed
    Gonna let that man
    Let him into my head
    I’ll see you in my dreams"

    I like that part!...

    "Electrified and cherry red"

    "Cherry" just seems so out of place. For lyrics that are otherwise dark and haunting, where does cherry red, and cherry cola fit in? I love the imagry that she presents of a dark man that visits her in her dreams, but adding in cherry cola reminds me of song lyrics I wrote in Junior High.

    I really want to like it. I love her voice, but the lyrics...

    Maybe thats the point though, makes you uneasy, like crooked lines, or a pebble in your shoe...
