Thunderbolt

A song concerning missed opportunities, the regrets you hold when you push away someone you love, and you can't figure out why you did it

Can I hear you sing my lines back to me

Can I unwind the tension that exists inside

Because I want you to be wild and free

I want you to be sweet and true with me

 

She's taking my breath away

And I can't breathe out when we kiss

It bothers me and I can't resist

I've gotta walk away, but I don't have the strength to quit

 

My paper heart burns in the face of a thunderbolt

I wasted my chance once and it was only my fault

So I'm hoping we won't shatter like glass

The remains of my love, lost amongst the grass

 

Are you certain of your future without me

Do you want someone to love and to run away

Playing hide and seek can only get you so far

But I think your heart is brighter than the stars

 

She's taking my breath away

And I can't breathe out when we kiss

It bothers me and I can't resist

I've gotta walk away, but I don't have the strength to quit

 

She gazes into my heart like a crystal ball

A hot, scalding limelight upon every flaw

I'm holding my head up high in false defiance

Love is a concoction, it's only a softer science

 

She's taking my breath away

And I can't breathe out when we kiss

It bothers me and I can't resist

I've gotta walk away, but I don't have the strength to quit

The End
