"Brighter Than the Sun" as written by and Ryan Tedder Colbie Caillat....
Stop me on the corner
I swear you hit me like a vision
I, I, I wasn't expecting
But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go with it?
Don't you blink you might miss it
See we got a right to just love it or leave it
You find it and keep it
'Cause it ain't every day you get the chance to say

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

I never seen it, but I found this love I'm undefeated
You better believe, I'm gonna treat? better than anything I've ever had
'Cause you're so damn beautiful read it
It's time and deliver it let's seal it
Boy we go together like peanuts and paydays and Marley and reggae
And it ain't every day you get the chance to say

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun

Everything is like a white out, 'cause we shk shk shine down
Even when when the light's out but I can see you glow
Got my head up in the rafters, got me happy ever after
Never felt this way before, ain't felt this way before

I swear you hit me like a vision
I, I, I wasn't expecting
But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go?

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun, yeah

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
Shining how we want, brighter than the sun, yeah
Brighter than the sun
Brighter than the sun
Brighter than the sun

Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
Oh, this is how it starts, lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun

    Lyric CorrectionCorrection:
    Chorus;
    "Oh, this is how it starts, lighting strikes the heart
    It goes off like a gun, brighter than the sun
    Oh, we could be the stars, falling from the sky
    Shining how we want, brighter than the sun"

    Second verse:
    "I never seen it, but I found this love I'm gonna feed.
    You better believe I'm going to treat it better than anything I've ever had
    Cause you're so damn beautiful
    Read it, it's signed and delivered, let's seal it
    Boy we go together like peanuts and paydays, Marley and reggae
    And everybody needs to get a chance to say"

    (The errors in this verse bug me more than any others. Who the hell is Molly? Maybe if it was a Beatles Ob-La-Di reference, but Marley is a much more obvious reference. And signed, sealed and delivered is another musical reference. And if it was "you better leave" instead of "you better believe I'm going to treat it..." it would contradict the entire song. Sorry. I'm just a bit nit picky at the moment. I do like the pop culture references in the song.)

    Bridge:
    "Everything is like a white out, cause we shaka-shaka-shine down
    Even when the when the light's out but I can see you glow
    Got my head up in the rafters, got me happy ever after
    Never felt this way before, ain't felt this way before

    I swear you hit me like a vision
    I, I, I wasn't expecting
    But who am I to tell fate where it's supposed to go?"

    And of course, I'm open to the fact that I might've gotten something wrong myself.

    General CommentYou can't listen to this song and frown at the same time. Colbie Calliat's voice is brighter than the sun. :)

    General CommentI haven't spoken with my best friend in quite some time but I hope he's happy and looking forward to things. I hope he knows that I'm looking forward, looking forward to the coming days and weeks. I wish I could offer him more love and support, hopefully he has plenty.
