Iron Maiden - Lightning Strikes Twice Lyrics




I feel the breeze on my face in expectance
Not very long before the storm reaches here
Off in the distance the lightning is flashing again
Feel something strong as the power draws near

Is it the rolling thunder that scares you
Is it the crashing of clouds that hold fear
But all I know as I sit in a corner alone
It takes me back to my childhood again

And as I wait and look for an answer
To all the things going round in my head
I ask myself could it be a disaster and when
It's maybe threatening to happen again

As the ominous light draws near
There's a lone dog howls in the park
All the people hurry inside
As the lightning flash lights dark
The storm is nearly here
Only god will know

You're sitting alone you watch
As the wind is blowing treetops
And the swaying rusting of leaves
Plenty all time to perceive
As you wait for rain to fall
Only god knows
The whole sky glows

Maybe lightning strikes twice
Maybe lightning strikes Twice

    Any thoughts on what the song means

    steve polternest

    baby Jesus you know that feel when there's a terrible storm outside and you're just stuck in your home fearing that the storm could get worse and causing this night to be your last that's what I'm guessing

  20. SvendleBerries

    Baby lightning rice spice!

  21. Calico Jack

    Maybe lightning porco dio

  22. Ronnie Metal

    Buenas rolas hace unos ayeres en la época de prepa buscando nuevos discos de maiden donde el internet era limitado y conseguir música era más emocionante

  23. Corona de Hierro

    I feel the breeze on my face in expectance
    Not very long before the storm reaches here
    Off in the distance the lightning is flashing again
    Feel something strong as the power draws near
    Is it the rolling of thunder that scares you
    Is it the crashing of clouds that hold fear
    But all I know as I sit in a corner alone
    It takes me back to my childhood again
    And as I wait and I look for an answer
    To all the things going round in my head
    I ask myself could it be a disaster and when
    It's maybe threatening to happen again
    As the ominous light draws near
    There's a lone dog howls in the park
    All the people hurry inside
    As a lightning flash lights dark
    The storm is nearly here
    Only God will know
    You're sitting alone you watch
    As the wind is blowing treetops
    And the swaying rustling leaves
    Plenty of time to perceive
    As you wait for rain to fall
    Only God knows
    The whole sky glows
    Maybe lightning strikes twice
    Maybe lightning strikes twice

    It's very similar...

  42. PestreiterT

    Soooo underrated! I love it!

  43. somesh kadam

    I was singing "Lightning lightning" instead of "Maybe lightning" for a year..

    That Loser Mika

    I did the same. I could've sworn it was "lightning lightning" as well

    somesh kadam

    That Loser Mika hahahahaha, same here. But "lightning lightning" suits more than" maybe lightning"...

    Thiago Morickochi

    Valtteri, why don't you create a Facebook account? It would be nice to chat with you too.

    Valtteri Mäntylä

    Well I can think that.

  52. Jordan Dillon

    Personally, this is the only decent song from either of Blaze's two Maiden albums.

    Machiavelli-ThatGuyIsMe

    Jordan Dillon i thought ot was old Dickinson

    That Loser Mika

    Sign of the cross
    Judgement Day
    Justice of the peace
    Man on the edge
    Lord of the flies
    Fortunes of war
    Judgement of heaven
    2 AM
    Virus
    Futureal
    The clansman
    The educated fool
    Como estais amigos

    I like this track, but in my opinion the ones I listed are far better. The Blaze era has a ton of great tracks.

    onpoc

    Man on the Edge is one of the bests maiden songs ever

    Music Music

    this, edge of darkness, judgement of heaven, como estais amigo, cmon!!

    Bathory Bear

    Gay mexican

    kmsharley75

    The only thing terrible is your avatar

  59. kmsharley75

    Blaze Bayley's voice was sort of a cross between Dickinson and D'Anno's voice.

    Michael Colby

    +kmsharley75 eh, I don't really here that. I do like his voice though.

    kmsharley75

    Michael Colby
    Maybe I worded that wrong. His "style" is sort of a cross between Dickinson and Di'Anno. And I agree, love Bayley's voice!

    ChronoWind

    i confer in your statement

    Brother in Christ

    yeah that's better worded and I agree.

    Andy V

    I know exactly what you mean. They had finally managed to fusion the two haha.

  60. Jamie Warrior Warlord McCallum

    awesome maiden song, and i would say the hidden gem on the virutal xi album. and lighting does strike twice.

  61. Jose Villegas

    Maybe lighting SWACHTWOICE

    lord geoffrey

    muh dik

    Jose Villegas

    Ney K

    +Angus Squealer crazy

    Saswata Sarkar

    +Angus Squealer may the lightning strikes you twice😇

    lord geoffrey

    acdc sucks , every acdc song has the same sound

    Angus Squealer

    AC/DC IS THE BEST! No matter what you dogs say! C´mon! Keep on barking!

    lord geoffrey

    @Angus Squealer is that why 2 of the band members got arrested for kiddie porn? Horrible aussie/ Scots cunts , they should drink themselves to death

  66. Carlos de la ossa

    fun note: this album was made to promote the nintendo virtual boy

    Carlos de la ossa

    lol jk
    awesome album
    the best song

    Ein Walroß

    Carlos de la ossa haha, 3 years late though

    Mich DC

    But it actually was meant to promote Ed Hunter and their soccer team.

  67. Craig Caine

  68. js007kcor

    Really good song with awesome solos I don`t understand why the people make problems with the chorus isn`t so bad at all

  69. SickMetalAddict

    I like Blaze much more than I like Bruce...

    Fuck me, right? Srry lol just my opinion :O

    WarthDader74

    @lord geoffrey X factor is very good, not rubbish
     

    Ein Walroß

    SickMetalAddict I like brice more than blaze. but I like blaze more than paul

    JJRJ 85

    I pity you

    LunarMetal DEATH

    im sorry, but i have to say it. FUCK YOU!!!! i am sorry. i understand its your opinion but bruce is so much better

    Soen Sonata

    Sick do you listen Blaze singing for example The Evil that men do? this sucks man

  70. Juan Josè Elgueta

    They're both great albums but bruce dickson is way better than blaze

    J.T.88

    bullfuckingshit

  71. TWKamil

    You're wrong Danath. Both albums with Blaze are great albums! And Blaze is great singer. Don't know why people don't like him so much.

  72. Lucas Teixeira

    My First Music From Iron Maiden xD

  73. UpTheIrons7

    Blaze's voice is much better in Virtual XI than in the X Factor! The rest of the band is awesome as usually. WHAT AN ALBUM!!! o.O

  74. Pedrinha da verdade

    cry bieber

    Ein Walroß

    Morte ?

    Shaggy Rogers

    Ein Walroß morty?

  75. KnightOfNostalgia

    this album is the fucking nuts!!!!!!! always loved virtual XI, all the songs are amazing

  76. Thiago Mori

    The beginning of this song is just awesome!

  77. ancientsign

    Last two Maiden albums couldn't reach this level O.o

    channel5980

    Are you high?

    Bill

    Yeah right...stuuuupid

    Shaggy Rogers

    ancientsign book of souls is my favourite album with albums like number of the beast, piece of mind and somewhere in time (also iron maiden self named title)

  78. AMasondude

    one of the best Albums of Iron Maiden, but Dickinson is still greeat

  79. BlackenedThunder

    that honor goes to fear of the dark.

  80. Kofosz Ahbez

    what? Brave New World was amazing

  81. Kofosz Ahbez

    no it would still be shitty, because Bieber is so extremely bad that even Bruce Dickinson can't save his music

  82. Psysence

    It would sound better with Bruce...But still awesome song!!!

  83. Guillem A

    Oh, please, I'd love to know wich were the songs "that break those albums". The Sign of the Cross? The Lord of the Flies? The Edge of Darkness? Futureal? The Clansman? Sincerely, those two albums weren't weak at all. The problem is people like you that try to compare totally different things. And I am not a fanboy, precisely.

  84. superfightingrobot

    i will say this: iron maiden's best songs were with bruce dickinson, and blaze gets trashed a lot since the 2 albums were kinda weak in total. but then there are songs like this that makes me think that really it was the songs themselves, not blaze, that made or break those albums

    TL;DR, blaze is cool and i like this song,

  85. Jordan Maron

    best song ever!!!!! :))

  86. Thomas Duchein

    The Last good album of maiden since the first . The rest sound like a Mc donalds version.

  87. erikthorell

    Maybe lightning strikes twice
    Maybe lightning strikes twice
    Maybe lightning strikes twice
    Maybe lightning strikes twice
    Maybe lightning strikes twice
    Maybe lightning strikes twice
    Maybe lightning strikes twice
    Maybe lightning strikes twice

    what were they thinking?

    Don't you think I'm a savior
    Don't you think I could save you
    Don't you think I could save your life
    Don't you think I'm a savior
    Don't you think I could save you
    Don't you think I could save your life
    Don't you think I'm a savior
    Don't you think I could save you
    Don't you think I could save your life
    Don't you think I'm a savior
    Don't you think I could save you
    Don't you think I could save your life
    Don't you think I'm a savior
    Don't you think I could save you
    Don't you think I could save your life
    Don't you think I'm a savior
    Don't you think I could save you
    Don't you think I could save your life
    Don't you think I'm a savior
    Don't you think I could save you
    Don't you think I could save your life
    Don't you think I'm a savior
    Don't you think I could save you
    Don't you think I could save your life
    Don't you think I'm a savior
    Don't you think I could save you
    Don't you think I could save your life


    Over and over and over.

    Veikka Järvinen

    it sounds good

    Garrett Camper

    They were thinking "maybe lightning strikes twice". Is that a good enough answer? 😂

    Michael Vargas

    What about Out of the Silent Planet?
    Out of the Silent Planet
    Out of the Silent Planet we are
    Repeat 30X+ times but nobody says anything because is not Blaney right?

    Nike870

    the same when they did SSOASS

  88. Vladimir Mat

    %50 de las personas creen que este álbum es una mierda,el otro %50 que es bueno

  89. Jenny Thalia

    This great track performed by Bruce? that would be just wrong, a fucking mistake.

  90. D3vil

    UP THE IRONS! FROM FINLAND!

  91. Bradley Tomashek

    This is one song that I KNOW for a fact that Bruce just can't sing as well as Blaze. Great vocals!

  92. Luke Elliot

    In your opinion. Number of the Beast is my boat ;). My other favs are killers, seventh son, powerslave, iron Maiden and this one

  93. Jerry Robinson

    i have to say that in my opinion this is nowhere near the best album, not to say that there are any bad ones but i am a big fan of somewhere in time and dance of death

  94. Jerry Robinson

    first time hearing this song and i have to say i'm impressed. dance of death still my favorite album followed by somewhere in time

  95. mateusvtguitar

    wanna see this song with bruce on vocals...
