[Tom] Your in control
Pressing pause on my heartbeat,
Someone stole all the air
So I can't speak now,
I know the chase is on,
I feel as though
My time has come

[Jay] How many times do I fly
Through your head space,
Now it's speeding away
From a safe place
Yeah, your skin,
Your touch, the kiss,
The rush, too much,
And here it comes

[All/Max] When your lips touch mine,
It's the kiss of life,
I know, I know
That it's a little bit frightening,
We might as well be playing with lightning
We touch like,
Like it's our first time,
Oh oh,
I know that it's a little bit frightening,
We might as well be playing with lightning now

[All] Oh oh,
Oh oh

[Siva] Just you and me and the
Coats in the back room,
Learning things they don't
Teach in the classroom
Now, your here,
I feel the fear,
But everything is oh so clear

[Nathan] I've been addicted to you
Since the first hit,
Out of control like a surge of electric
Yeah, your skin
Your touch, the kiss,
The rush, too much,
And here it comes

[All/Max] When your lips touch mine,
It's the kiss of life,
I know, I know
That it's a little bit frightening,
We might as well be playing with lightning
We touch like,
Like it's our first time,
Oh oh,
I know it's a little bit frightening,
We might as well be playing with lightning now

[All] Oh oh,
Oh oh,
Oh oh,
Oh oh

[Nathan] Your skin, your touch,
The kiss, too much,
[Tom] Your skin, your touch,
To kiss, the rush,
[Jay] Your skin, your touch,
The kiss, too much,
[Max] The rush, the rush,
The rush, the rush

[All/Max] When your lips touch mine,
It's the kiss of life,
I know, I know
That it's a little bit frightening,
We might as well be playing with lightning
We touch like,
Like it's our first time,
Oh oh,
I know it's a little bit frightening,
We might as well be playing with lightning now

[All] Oh oh,
Oh oh

    Lightning? In the song.. For me its the spark you feel for the one you love and when you touch and kiss, the sparks turns up to a million voltage of electricity - thus, lightning -the intense emotion!

    I love this song so much! I love the wanted, i think they are pretty amazing! This song always makes me dance no matter where i am, i may not dance dance but it always gets me tapping my foot or doing something to keep along with the beat. I know every word and sing it every time. Their music never gets old. :3
