Cheryl Cole – Waiting For Lightning lyrics
[Verse:]
In over my head, in a sea of black
Tryna pick up the pieces
Feeling lost and all alone
Looking for signs through the window
Just gotta break silence
And dig my way out of this hole

[Pre-Chorus:]
Cause I could waste all my life
Waiting for lightning in the dark
Oh, I can decide that I can make fire
All I need is a spark
Don't wanna waste all my life
Drowning in all these question marks
Oh, I can decide that I can make fire

[Chorus:]
I'm done waiting for lightning in the dark
I found the light inside my heart
Ignite the flame and set it off
No stopping me
I know I'm done waiting for lightning in the dark
I found the light inside my heart
I burn the sky, I'll rip it off
No touching me
I know I'm done waiting for lightning

[Verse 2:]
I'm not laying down, I'm not shutting up
I'm out, blazing like a rocket
I never knew I could burn a flame
Through the ice and the cold rain
I won't be scared about it
I'll just take a match to the tear stains

[Pre-Chorus:]
Cause I could waste all my life
Waiting for lightning in the dark
Oh, I can decide that I can make fire
All I need is a spark
Don't wanna waste all my life
Drowning in all these question marks
Oh, I can decide that I can make fire

[Chorus:]
I'm done waiting for lightning in the dark
I found the light inside my heart
Ignite the flame and set it off
No stopping me
I know I'm done waiting for lightning in the dark
I found the light inside my heart
I burn the sky, I'll rip it off
No touching me
I know I'm done waiting for lightning

[Bridge:]
I was lonely as the last survivor
Lost along the edge
Not anymore
Now I'm alive, not just surviving
Waiting for the lightning anymore

[Chorus:]
I'm done waiting for lightning in the dark
I found the light inside my heart
Ignite the flame and set it off
No stopping me
I know I'm done waiting for lightning in the dark
I found the light inside my heart
I burn the sky, I'll rip it off
No touching me
I know I'm done waiting for lightning

[Post-Chorus:]
Now I'm alive
Not just surviving
Waiting for the lightning anymore
