"When The Night" as written by Miranda Eleanor De Fonbrune Cooper, Brian Thomas Higgins, Timothy Martin Powell, Nick Coler and Anne Lilia Berge Strand....
When the night lingers in the thunder and rain
It's making me forget my name
And everything I ever know
And baby, when the night turns everything I love into war
Like nothing that I know is for sure
And everything I ever kno-o-ow is so far from home

I wanna know what love is all about
But first I'm going up and then I'm going down
Suddenly it's like I never seen the sun before
And do you see
I wanna feel the lightening in my hand
That underneath it all there's got to be a plan
Then I can understand what the hell I'm looking for

Somehow ended up in love
But I can't believe I wanted this phenomena
Cause I don't ever sleep at all
Stop now, stop you're leaving up again
I can't believe I wanted this phenomena
And I, I hardly need to call

When the night lingers in the thunder and rain
It's making me forget my name
And everything I ever know
And baby, when the night turns everything I love into war
Like nothing that I know is for sure
And everything I ever kno-o-ow is so far from home

I wanna cool my fever in the rain
I'm burning like a moth attracted to the flame
But better that I burn than slowly fade away
And do you see
I wanna feel the lightening in my hand
That underneath it all there's got to be a plan
Then I can understand what the hell I'm looking for

Somehow ended up in love
But I can't believe I wanted this phenomena
Cause I don't ever sleep at all
Stop now, stop you're speeding up again
I can't believe I wanted this phenomena
And I, I hardly need to call

When the night lingers in the thunder and rain
It's making me forget my name
And everything I ever know
And baby, when the night turns everything I love into war
Like nothing that I know is for sure
And everything I ever kno-o-ow is so far from home

    General CommentA little correction:

    In the chorus:

    "Like nothing that I know is for sure
    And everything I ever kno-o-ow is so far from home"

    Should be better understood as:

    ""Like nothing that I've known is for sure
    And everything I've ever kno-o-own is so far from home"


    And the line: "I wanna feel the lightening in my hand" is "I wanna feel the lightning in my hand"



    Cheers.
