Alphaville – Thunder & Lightning lyrics

I was walking in the rain
When the angel of my intuition whispered hello
And then I turned around there was you
Well, I was quite surprised to face that kind of incarnation
Love is always unexpected, love strikes blind and undirected
An it's amazing how my life became the wildest game of all
I never knew without your love
And since I fell for you I fail to brave the heavy weather
Raging round the axis of my heart
And I don't, I don't need to..

Whenever I see you I want thunder and lightning
Whenever I touch you I feel thunder and lightning
Whenever I hold you I feel better than the time before
That's what I want, thunder and lightning for evermore

There were times when I was down
There were times when all my hopes had faded
My whole life just seemed to be a senseless quest for energy
But love is the answer, love is all we need my friend
Now you came & changed the weather
Now I wanna live forever

Yes I admit I'm playin' with powers that I can't control
But I tell you, I will do the best I can
We're on a crash course plane that's heading down to paradise
And that is the intention of the plan and I don't need no heaven

What do you want? you know it! what do you want then?
I tell you what I want! I tell you what I need!!
I don't need no heaven!!!
I need thunder and lightning, don't need no heaven!!!!!!!!!
