I Heard the Cry of Lightning - June 21, 2011



I Heard the Cry of Lightning

Yes, from grief and pain I wanted to run
And turn into liquid numb
But I heard the cry of lightning
Ride in on a black horse
With much more fight to come

I stand here, appearing to you as frail
In all your sudden thoughts
When each day low, low worries
Do not lie underneath
Any of the dreams I bought

Do you believe that your tongue
Can taste all my fears
And when the time comes
You will see me spinning down
My own stair of tears

Now you go ahead and listen
For a sad, sad sigh
But you should never forget
I have heard the cry of lightning
Her fight is in my eyes
