[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

    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

    This song is about the boy's first kiss, how scary it was for them, and how risky it was, but how exciting it was at the same time, hence "we might as well be playing with lightning" they're describing the adreniline rush as they kiss this person "your skin, your touch, the kiss, the rush, too much, and here, it comes" it's quite clever really.

    I honestly think that lightning is another way of saying that your extremely in love with someone. At least, that's what i think the guys mean by it xd. I love these guys, i want them to come and give their own concert in the netherlands.. Love nathan and jay btw..

    I love the song and it is very personal 2 me. I have had a lot of things happened over the 13 years i have been alive and i just love that this song captures all aspects of peoples lives. I have always loved the wanted and found their songs easy to relate to. I love every word they sing. I am a massive fan and will always love the wanted!!!
