(Verse 1:)
Saw me on the corner
Swear you hit me like a vision
I, I, I wasn't expectin'
But who am I to tell fate where it's suppose 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, you keep it
Cuz it ain't everyday you get the chance to say

(Chorus:)
Ooooh this is how it starts
Lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun
Brighter than the sun
Ooooh we could be the stars
Fallin' from the sky
Shining how we want
Brighter than the sun

(Verse 2:)
I've never seen it
I found this love I wanna feed it
You better believe I'm gonna treat it
Better than anything I've ever had cuz you're so damn beautiful

Read it, it's signed and delivered
Let's seal it, boy we go together like
Peanuts and Paydays and Marley and Reggae
And everybody needs to get a chance to say

(Chorus:)
Ooooh this is how it starts
Lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun
Brighter than the sun

Ooooh we could be the stars
Fallin' from the sky
Shining how we want
Brighter than the sun

(Bridge:)
Everything is like a whiteout
Cuz we shika-shika-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

Swear you hit me like a vision
I, I, I wasn't expectin'
But who am I to tell fate where it suppose to go?

(Chorus:)
Ooooh this is how it starts
Lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun
Brighter than the sun

Ooooh we could be the stars
Fallin' from the sky
Shining how we want
Brighter than the sun (2x)

Brighter than the sun (3x)

(Ooooh this is how it starts
Lightning strikes the heart
It goes off like a gun
Brighter than the sun) (4x)

    This is one of the best songs around it doesn't have all of that cussing in every verse like a bunch of other songs around. I especially like how it is so fast because i love fast beats to songs. In this song she just sings her mind like she is just the happiest person ever like she on top of the world. I love you collbie keep writting as wonderful and keep singing as beutiful as you do!!!

    She is giving a hidden meaning... She is talking about "a fallen star"... Which refers to angels who have fallen, and insinuates that we can be the same way and "brighter than the sun", but the reference is to the "son", not the "sun"... The son being jesus christ the lord. Furthermore she says we can "shine how we want, brighter than the sun", which is to say we can be more illuminated and come to our "own vision" without the restrictions or limitations of the "son". Additionally, she says it's like "lightning striking the heart"... Which refers to the "prince of the power of the air", his power being those things such as lightning, air waves, electricity, etc. If you don't know who the prince of the power of the air is... Google it.

    All i know is that i never heard it before and was very down, when i turned on the radio and this song made me dance for a moment... At the time i felt like it was the spirit of love that is brighter than the sun... And i needed some love which the spirit sent me via this song, not down anymore. Instead i have hope of meeting that special person waiting to meet me... Blessings all...
