"Lightnin' Strikes" as written by Twyla Herbert and Lou Christie....
Listen to me, baby, you gotta understand
You're old enough to know the makings of a man
Listen to me, baby, it's hard to settle down
Am I asking too much for you to stick around

Every boy wants a girl
He can trust to the very end
Baby, that's you
Won't you wait but 'til then

When I see lips beggin' to be kissed (stop)
I can't stop (stop)
I can't stop myself
(Stop, stop)

Lightning is striking again
Lightning is striking again

Nature's takin' over my one-track mind
Believe it or not, you're in my heart all the time
All the girls are sayin' that you'll end up a fool
For the time being, baby, live by my rules

When I settle down
I want one baby on my mind
Forgive and forget
And I'll make up for all lost time

If she's put together fine
And she's readin' my mind (stop)
I can't stop (stop)
I can't stop myself
(Stop, stop)

Lightning is striking again
Lightning is striking again
And again and again and again

Lightning is striking again
Lightning is striking again

There's a chapel in the pines
Waiting for us around the bend
Picture in your mind
Love forever, but 'til then

If she gives me a sign
That she wants to make time (stop)
I can't stop (stop)
I can't stop myself
(Stop, stop)

Lightning is striking again
Lightning is striking again
And again and again and again
Lightning is striking again
And again and again and again

    General CommentI'm not quite sure ... is it about infidelity? Because the only other option is date rape. Either way ... it definitely shows how attitudes about sex and romance have changed.

    General Commenti origionally felt this song was about rape, but after years of listening to it, i believe it is about infidelity. Just am not sure if it is about him or her cheating.

    General CommentTo me this song is about a man having an urge to cheat on his girlfriend because she's not that serious and is not ready to settle down. He can't control himself when he sees some woman that he wants because- like the song says... he cant help himself and lightning strikes again... and he finds himself cheating again. He wants to have one girl on his mind but his girlfriend isn't doing much for him.
