"Thunder" as written by and Martin Johnson....
Today is a winding road that's taking me to places that I didn't want to go
Whoa (whoa, whoa, whoa)
Today in the blink of an eye
I'm holding on to something and I do not know why
I tried

I tried to read between the lines
I tried to look in your eyes
I want a simple explanation
For what I'm feeling inside
I gotta find a way out
Maybe there's a way out

Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other?
You'll always be my thunder, and I said
Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
I don't wanna ever love another
You'll always be my thunder
So bring on the rain
And bring on the thunder

Today is a winding road
Tell me where to start and tell me something I don't know
Whoa (whoa, whoa, whoa)
Today I'm on my own
I can't move a muscle and I can't pick up the phone
I don't know (I don't know, I don't know, I don't know)

And now I'm itching for the tall grass
And longing for the breeze
I need to step outside
Just to see if I can breathe
I gotta find a way out
Maybe there's a way out

Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other?
You'll always be my thunder, and I said
Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
I don't wanna ever love another
You'll always be my thunder
So bring on the rain

Yeah I'm walking on a tightrope
I'm wrapped up in vines
I think we'll make it out
But you just gotta give me time
Strike me down with lightning
Let me feel you in my veins
I wanna let you know how much I feel your pain

Today is a winding road that's taking me to places that I didn't want to go
Whoa

Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other?
You'll always be my thunder, and I said
Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
I don't wanna ever love another
You'll always be my thunder


Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other?
You'll always be my thunder
So bring on the rain
Oh baby bring on the pain
And listen to the thunder

    General CommentI think this song is about leaving someone that you need behind (Today is a winding road Thats taking me to places that I didnt want to go, whoa) I think that the summer romance ended but they both can't live without eachoher (Today Im on my own I cant move a muscle and I cant pick up the phone, I dont know) all they want is to be able to have what they had during that summer and to be able to go back and have what they had that summer (And now I'm itching for the tall grass And longing for the breeze) he wants the girl to know its affecting him too because she meant just as much to him as he did to her (I wanna let you know how much I feel your pain)

    this is a beautiful song and i dont think my interpretation does it justice.. I want to hear some other ideas too but no one is commenting.

    General CommentThis song (to me) is about a guy who is leaving for whatever reason. "Winding road" is a reference from Wonderwall by Oasis, so his "Thunder" is comparable to what a "wonderwall" is, aka, someone you love. The changes he's going through ere inevitable so he told himself he wouldn't get attached, but he's still holding onto love although he knows he shouldn't (I'm holding onto something, & I do not know why I try), b/c there's not much he can do to change the fact that he's gone. "I tried to read between the lines, I tried to look in your eyes, I want a simple explaination of what I'm feeling inside. Gotta find a way out..." means that he's spending so much time thinking about this situation although he's powerless, and he wants a way out, aka he wants to go back to where she is. He and this girl had an incredible romance that lasted over the summer, and he compares her to thunder, b/c thunder is something that suddenly surprises and excites people. Thunder is also a powerful force (much like their love). "Bring on the rain, bring on the thunder," when it rains and thunders, it reminds him that he wants to be w/ his own "thunder" again. He wants to call her and hear her voice, but he doesn't know how to express how he feels about her. "Itching for the tall grass, longing for the breeze," always gives me some imagery of a meadow during the summer, and maybe he spent a lot of time there w/ the girl. The emotions overwhelm him, so he has to "step outside just to see if I can breathe," & contemplate how he'll ever see this girl again. He feels like he's trapped wherever he is, but he wants the girl to know that he's in as much pain as she is, although he maybe didn't express it enough before he left. This song is his way of coping w/ his loss, and figuring out what to do next. Either way, she'll always be his "thunder" (wonderwall). :)

    General Commenti think the song is about how he knows he's in love, but he's scared to tell her. he's scared to call and he's gotta make it out of his problem. she needs to give him time. he's letting her know that thats all he needs, and she's all he needs.

    General Commenti think i got the lyrics right... it's pretty much the same as the other one... maybe one or two changes. But yah let me know if there's anything that needs to be changed.

    General CommentSome of it kind of confuses me but I basically think it means that things have gone wrong in the past, & even things didn't exactly work out the singer will always love whoever he's singing to. & I think he's thinking of how it all started one summer--a summer he'll never forget..It's a really sweet song =]
