"Electricity" as written by and Richard Melville Hall....
I can't really explain it
I haven't got the words
It's a feeling that you can't control
I suppose its like forgetting
Losing who you are
And at the same time
Something makes you whole
Its like that there's a music
Playing in your ear
And I'm listening, and I'm listening
And then I disappear

And then I feel a change
Like a fire deep inside
Something bursting me wide open
Impossible to hide

And suddenly I'm flying
Flying like a bird
Like electricity
Electricity
Sparks inside of me
And I'm free, I'm free

It's a bit like being angry
It's a bit like being scared
Confused and all mixed up
And mad as hell
It's like when you've been crying
And you're empty, and you're full
I don't know what it is
It's hard to tell

Its like that there's some music
Playing in your ear
But the music
Is impossible
Impossible to hear

But then I feel it move me
Like a burning deep inside
Something bursting me wide open
Impossible to hide

Then suddenly I'm flying
Flying like a bird
Like electricity
Electricity
Sparks inside of me
And I'm free, I'm free

Electricity
Sparks inside of me
And I'm free, I'm free
Oh oh whoa
I'm free

    General CommentI think it's about dying or near death experiences.

    General CommentActually its not about dying or near death experiences, its about the feeling you get when you are dancing. In the movie billy eliot, this is the theme tune for the stage musical of Billy Eliot, Billy descibes the feeling he gets when he is dancing as electricity.I love this song and think it has very real meanings.

    General Commentstarydancer is right, but the reason I love this song is cos I think it can be applied to whatever makes you feel like that in your own life. For me it would be dancing as well, but for others it could be any number of different things.
    And also it seems to fit with what I think falling in love is like. That confusion of emotions, feeling everything at once, and something trying to burst out of you.
