It's close to midnight
There's a chill in the air
I long to touch you
But I don't dare
There's a wall between us
There's a storm in the air
Though yu're lying beside me
It's like you're not even there
When the lightning strikes
I don't want to be here
When the cold wind bites
I don't want to be here
Ooh it hurts me
Though we won't be talking
I hear every word you say
Now the rain is falling
Like a million tears
Coming through my window
To wash away the years
When the lightning strikes...
Oh can you feel it
There's astorm in the air
And it's getting nearer
When the cloud breaks
I don't want to be here
To feel the rain
Feel the pain
There's a wall between us
There's a storm in the air
Though you're lying beside me
It's like you're not even there
When the lightning strikes
Oh can you feel it
There's a storm in the air
And it's getting nearer
When the cloud breaks
I don't want to be here
To feel the rain
When the lightning strikes...
When the lightning strikes...
