I could've wrote down
Every thought I've been thinking to myself all this past year.
But would it stand out?
Whoah, I wanna make myself clear."
And baby - clearly
I need some balance in my ears right now
'Cause I've been freaking myself out
And I've been waking this whole town.

And then I turned myself inside out
La da da da da
And it's all about
The way your hips move
Side to side,
Left to right,
Guide me home tonight.
And I need a little more thunder, a little more lightning.
A little more you,
Be my lantern.
Help me shine on through.

So said I,
I, I gotta comb my brain for the words to say.
And if you don't feel right then it's a wasted night-
The price to pay is so, so high.
And the irony could be cut with a knife.
'Cause it's my first chance.
But it's my last chance.

And then I turned myself inside out
La da da da da
And it's all about
The way your hips move
Side to side,
Left to right,
Guide me home tonight.
And I need a little more thunder, a little more lightning.
A little more you,
Be my lantern.
Help me shine on through.

Baby,
Well I gotta have you loving me tonight.
And when my world has become a whirlwind
Will you be my white flag?

Speed it up like sugar,
I'm a wreck and you know that I can't do a thing about it (about it).
Break it down,
I'm on my knees,
Baby take another chance, oh please.
I'm a flood, I'm a train, I'm a wind
You're taking me out, I'm taking you in.

Speed it up like sugar,
I'm a wreck and you know that I can't do a thing about it (about it).
Break it down,
I'm on my knees,
Baby take another chance, oh please.
I'm a flood, I'm a train, I'm a wind
When you're taking me out, I'm taking you in.

I gotta mind, Grade A Catastrophe
Stood strong,
It was the best for me.
My town is irrela-relavant.
Blue eyes match green lies.
Yeah!

And I need a little more thunder, a little more lightning.
A little more you,
Be my lantern.
Help me shine on through.
And I need a little more thunder, a little more lightning.
A little more you,
(Give me more of you)
Be my lantern.
(Give me more of you)
Help me shine on through.

Baby,
Well I gotta have you loving me tonight.
And when my world has become a whirlwind
Will you be my white flag?
