Thunder and Lightning Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level
1. Thunder And Lightning (4:54)
Locked up in the classroom waiting for the fight
Down to the schoolyard knocking the gate
Into the alley meet up with the boys
Waiting for the weekend to make a little noise

Thunder is strong, lightning is death
Kicking the girls and it's starting to blast
Sweeter than the heavens and the fate means stumble
But it's Saturday night when heavy rock was born

Chorus:
Like thunder and lightning
god damn, it's so exciting
It hits you like a hammer
god damn

It was Saturday night I was ready for the dance
My girl walked in holding another guys hand
He stood six foot six he looked two miles wide
I was taking it easy till he took her outside

I was madder than hell and fit to burn
This guy would break a leg before but now he's got to run
Standing in the corner giving him a thrill
You can keep your lover honey, but he's got to pay the bill

Well the place started rocking it was Saturday night
I was dressed to kill I was feeling alright
Alright in the middle of the night
I wasn't ready for a rumble but the mood was right

When he got up to leave
I stood in his way
I said love that's the price you have to pay
In the doorway up against the wall
When they play a heavy record then I'm gonna have a ball

We started to rumble and stumble
It is we were rocking and rolling and rolling and tumbling
I fumbled and started to win
When the greater than wicked then I hit him again

I hit him again and I couldn't hit him anymore
My head was all black and blue and my jaw was sore
Sweeter than the heavens and like a frightening stumble
It was Saturday night when heavy rock was born
2. This Is The One (4:03)
I've got to find an occupation, I've got to keep myself employed
It's a bad situation, my brain's destroyed
I've got to find a new vocation, I feel it burning down inside
Such a low down abrasion, inside it hurts my pride

I hear it, I know it, I touch it, I feel it, I see it
Some day we will have won, I can feel it in my bones
This is the one
I hear it, I know it, I touch it, I feel it, I see it
Some day thy will be done, I can feel it in my bones
This is the one

Got a bad situation, I can feel it building up inside
Got a certain reputation, outside outside
I've got another situation, I can feel it building to my soul
Hell bent, hell raising, I feel it through my soul

I hear it, I know it, I touch it, I feel it, I see it
Some day thy kingdom come, I can feel it in my bones
This is the one
I hear it, I know it, I touch it, I feel it, I see it
Some day we shall overcome, I can feel it in my bones
This is the one

I hear it, I know it, I touch it, I feel it, I see it
Some day thy kingdom come, I can feel it in my bones
This is the one
I hear it, I know it, I touch it, I feel it, I see it
? (this is your son)
This is the one
I hear, I tough it, I feel it, I see it
Some day thy will be done, I can feel it in my bones
This is the one
3. The Sun Goes Down (6:18)
There is a demon among us whose soul belongs in hell
Sent here to redeem us, she knows it all too well
He comes and goes, he comes and goes, she knows it all too well
But when all is said and done
The sun goes down

She tries her best to leave him, but she is still captured by his spell
She knows now she must deceive him, he knows it all to well
She comes and goes, she comes and goes, he knows it all too well
But when all is said and done
The sun goes down

She comes and goes, she comes and goes, he knows it all too well
But when all is said and done
The sun goes down

There is a demon within us
The sun goes down
She tries her best to deceive him
The sun goes down
4. The Holy War (5:11)
If you will adore me
Bow before me and praise my name
If you place no god before me
Then all I have is yours to claim

And if God is in the heavens
Why did God let children die
If you don't ask these questions
There is no reasons why

We are chosen
We are one
We are frightened of no one
And no one will win this war
This is the way
This is the law

All the visions shown before you
All the kingdoms and the thrones
All are yours if you bow before me and adore me
All this you can own

There are those that will go to Heaven
There are those that will never win
No one knows what will happen
There are those that turn to sin

We are chosen
We are one
We are frightened of no one
And no one will win this war
This is the way
This is the law

(Solo)

We are chosen
We are one
We are frightened of no one
And no one will win this war
This is the way
This is the law

We are chosen

The devil is in hell with the demons
This is the Holy War

They lead us to our temptation
Lead us, take our souls
There is no evil in salvation
There is evil in us all

Just as Satan tempted Jesus
And Jesus slips and falls
He is a station on The Cross now
He is dying to save us all

We are chosen
We are one
We are frightened of no one
And no one will win this war
This is the way
This is the law

We are chosen
We are one
We are frightened of no one
And no one will win this war
This is the way
This is the law

We are chosen
We are one
We are frightened of no one
And no one will win this war
This is the way
This is the law

We are chosen
We are one
We are frightened of no one
And no one will win this war
This is the way
This is the law

If God is in Heaven, won't You save me now
Oh Lord forgive them for what they've done
Lost children of Babylon
Oh Allah oh no oh no (?)

This is the Holy War
5. Cold Sweat (3:06)
I put my money in the suitcase
And headed for the big race
I felt a chill on my backbone
As I hung up the telephone

Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
Running down the back of my neck
To lose means trouble, to win pays double
And I got me a heavy bet

Cold, cold sweat

They say chances on the outside
Are looking very slim
I've been so lucky on the inside
I feel I'm going to win

Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
Running down the back of my neck
Take a little money, there's nothing left to lose
And I got me a heavy bet

Cold, cold sweat

I've got me a whole month's wages
I haven't seen that much in ages
I might spend it in stages
And move out to Las Vegas

Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
Running down the back of my neck
To lose means trouble, to win means double
And I got me a heavy bet

Cold, cold sweat

I put my money in the suitcase
They say chances on the outside
I got a whole months wages

Stone cold sober and stone cold sweat
Stone cold crazy
Place another bet
6. Someday She's Going To Hit Back (4:05)
Woman don't like it - hurting her this way
Someday she is going to hit back
The woman don't like me in her own way
Someday she is going to hit back
Woman don't like it - treating her like this
Someday she is going to hit back
The woman she don't love the lonely
Someday she is going to hit back

Woman don't like it - begging on her knees
Someday she is going to hit back
Oh please, please, don't desert me
Someday she is going to hit back
Woman don't like it - treating her this way
Someday she is going to hit back
There is tenderness in the heart of the lonely
Someday she is going to hit back

(Solo)
Someday she is going to hit back (4 times)
Woman don't like it (4 times)
Someday she is going to hit back (4 times)

She feels so lonely
Woman don't like it
She feels so blue
Woman don't like it
He has lost her now
Woman don't like it
Oh... woman, you knew what she could do
Woman don't like it

Woman don't like it - says it has to stop
Someday she is going to hit back
The woman she says she doesn't love me
Someday she is going to hit back
Woman don't like it - the woman don't say a lot
Someday she is going to hit back
With one last kiss she leaves him lonely
Someday she is going to hit back
7. Baby Please Don't Go (5:08)
I tried to warn you baby
I tried to tell you I was down
Oh yeah yeah

You would not listen baby
You would not hel pme when I was down
Oh no no

He tells her "Doesn't anybody understand I love her?"
That girl she holds my heart in her hands
Oh baby, oh baby baby baby baby

Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go
Baby please don't go
Oh no no no no no
Baby please don't go

I tried to warn you baby
I tried to tell you "Don't let me down"
Oh no no

You would not listen baby
Baby you would not leave me go down
Oh no no

He tells her there is foolish there is wise
The young ones hold their heart up to the skies
And dance the night away

There is foolish, there is wise
There is anger in his tone
There is truth behind the lies
His heart has turned to stone

Wherever you may be, he loves her
Wherever you may stand
He loves her in this land

Baby please don't go
Don't hurt me so
Don't leave me now
Baby please don't go
8. Bad Habits (4:04)
I seen you walking down the street with another man
Girl you're really shocking
I seen you walking down the street with another hand
Held in your stockings

Boys will be boys and girls will be trouble
And I'm a man of bad habits
I seen you walking down the street with another man
Girl I had to have it

Bad habits
Bad habits
Bad habits

You and I we should meet
Yeah, you and I we should get together
Me and you and I should meet
In the rain and stormy weather

Bad habits
Bad habits
Bad habits

No messing around
Now's the time to start

Boys will be boys and girls will be trouble
And I'm a man of bad habits
I seen you walking down the street with another girl
Man I had to have it

I know it gets into your brain
Sometimes it dribbles and goes in your veins
I tell you this boys is the same
This boy's got bad habits

You and I should meet
You and I we should get together
You and I, you know we should meet
Hey babe, check it out the stormy weather

Bad habits
I got bad habits
I got bad habits
9. Heart Attack (3:39)
Mama I'm dying of a heart attack, heart attack, heart attack
I love that girl but she don't love me back
My girl she tells me that we're breaking up, breaking up, breaking up
My heart can't handle the strain that's shaking it

She tried to tell me no so long ago
I would not listen but now I know

Papa I'm drinking for an overload, overload, overload
The gun in my pocket is all ready to explode
Papa I'm dying of an overdose, overdose, overdose
I tried to warn you don't come too close

I tried to tell you way back when we were young
I tried to warn you there was something wrong
Mama I'm dying
Oh Papa I'm dying, dying

Heart attack
