Lightning
 
There’s Lightning in my heart…           
Thunder in my head
I’m walking through this living…
Singing to the dead
 
Am I all alone?                       
Did I see what I just saw?
Will we live to fight another day?           
How did I become the enemy?
 
Wake up Sweet… 
Wake up, won’t you?
And Talk to me…           
 
We’ve come too far to turn back now... 
Dreams don’t work that way
They take us… Oh, unlock the doors…                       
Light the bed on fire…
 
There is no place like home…           
There is no home at all…
Family a distant conjuring…                       
The hearth is filled with trash…
Broken Bottles…           
Keep us company
 
Wake up Sweet… 
Wake up, won’t you?
And Talk to me…                       
 
Reaching out with hands unopened
Screaming out no words are heard
Listening for breath….           
Clutching to the blankets
 
I shudder to keep still…
Danger’s moving in
Your face becomes a mirror…           
I lose you once again
 
Wake up Sweet… 
Wake up, won’t you?
And Talk to me…
