Music was always a passion of my late friend. If I begged enough, he’d often sing a little song for me now and again. While I wouldn’t say music is a passion of mine, I would say I enjoy jamming out in my bedroom in front of my full-length mirror.
Recently two of my best girlfriends and I attended the John Mayer concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City. While I love John Mayer, my stomach did a big flip as he opened with no other than ‘Heartbreak Warfare.’
Hearing the lyrics –
Inside my chest to keep me up at night
Dream of ways
To make you understand my pain”
fill the arena, my mind wandered to Lee; however, I pushed the thought away in order to have a fun girls’ night.
Later that night I got to thinking about other songs that feature lightning and lightning strikes. Below are some of my favorites.
- ‘Chemical Party’ by Gavin DeGraw
“Here at the party/everyone’s happy/everyone’s high/get struck by lightning/who here would feel it?/who here could heal it?/who here would try?”
- ‘Lightning Strikes’ by Snow Patrol
“What if this storm ends?/And I don’t see you again/as you are now/ever again/the perfect halo/of gold hair and lightning/sets you off against/the planet’s dance”
- ‘Lightning’ by Dispatch
“There’s lightning on the ceiling/coming from the corner of her eye”
- ‘Lightning Crashes’ by Live
“Lightning crashes, a new mother cries/her placenta falls to the floor/the angel opens her eyes/the confusion sets in/before the doctor can close the door”
… Add your own!
