I still remember every word you said
I've got a catacomb of words up in my head
Now all our dreams are thrift-store ready
Like they used to be that way
When we're looking at a one-track get-away

And a moment's all it takes to find
The grey matter is suddenly defined
And if I stare too long at another face
Sometimes I see your own
Outrun the realization that I'm alone

When the lightning strikes you can try to run
But it never fails to strike at home
Now you're all shook up
And you can feel the burning deep inside your bones
And if you try hard enough
You might make it back in time

It's been greyer for this time of year
I've been sitting around waiting for a sign to appear
Something in me says stick it out, wait another day
But what I wait for, want I wanted
It always stays the same

Lightning
When the lightning strikes you can try to run
But it never fails to strike at home
Now you're all shook up
And you can feel the burning deep inside your bones
And if you try hard enough
You might make it back in time

And the maker of this puzzle
I wanted to commend
I can't see the whole picture
Guess I haven't figured it out yet
And even though these times are trying
And it's hard to keep your head above
Oh the water rolling over
You just gotta hold on

When the lightning strikes you can try to run
But it never fails to strike at home
Now you're all shook up
And you can feel the burning deep inside your bones
And if you try hard enough
You might make it back in time

    General Commentthere's some faint phrases missing here and there,
    such as after

    "you might make it back in time"

    at least i hear a light "look up" afterwards..
