Yes - Lightning Strikes Lyrics




What you gonna do when the lightning strikes and hits you
Who ya gonna call for the secret of stealing the world
Swimming in this ocean of words on your new cellphone
Diving for the wisdom of pearls in your eyes
Come on

What ya gonna do when the lightning strikes and hits you
How ya gonna laugh when the joker forgets his lines
Stepping off a cloud into space whatever greets you
Show me how you got this award for being alive

Waking up is waking to the power
Dancing up is dancing till the dawn
Talk talk talk will always get you someplace
Shake it up 'n' shake me till I'm done
Shake it up now!

She ay... Do wa bap
She ay... Do wa bap
She ay... Do wa bap
She ay... Do wa bap

Who ya gonna call when the power
Begins to chase you
Spinning out of shape now you're learning to live again
Fastening your seatbelt tonight it could get jumpy

Showing me the good 'n' that
Life is not in vain

Take take take 'n' take me thru the lightning
Walk don't talk me always on the run
Ride it out until you get the picture
Shake it up and let me get me some
Let me get me some

Eya he say touch it together
Touching my spirit touching my feeling
Eya he say touch it together
Touching my spirit touching my feeling
Eya he say coming together
Touching my spirit touching my feeling
Eya he say coming together
Touching my spirit touching my feeling

Talk, talk, talk, keep moving 'round in circles
Moving till the moon is on the run
Take me take me take me to the new day
Take me out and let me get me some

Take take take and dance me thru the lightning
Moving to the left 'n' to the sun... ya ya ya

Help me get me some... ya
Help me get me some... come on

Ooh ya... ooh ya... ooh ya... ooh ya
Ooh ya... ooh ya... ooh ya

    56 days to go and this is my morning song to inspire me to get ready for my next adventure . . . Biking Birder 2018 - Peru! A Yes song for every day leading up to the start on April first. Two months cycling from Lima to The Manu and then four months kayaking along the Madre de Dios river. 62 years old and loving/living life and every day a million, billion, trillion thanks to Yes for a life time of loving their music.
    My latest Biking Birder adventure is from April to October 2018.

    This year I am cycling and kayaking for the six months in Peru.

    This is my fourth Biking Birder adventure, which is all about raising money for Birdlife International . . .

    https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/bikingbirderperu2018

    and for Chaskwasi-Manu, a project that helps indigenous children from The Manu National Park access a school.

    The childrens' desire for education is so that they can help protect their rainforest home and be ambassadors for their communities.

    from the album The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society

    Lyrics:
    Not a lot is missing
    Every ounce of treasure found
    And I believe that everyone should get what
    They're allowed
    Suspected of belief that comes suspended
    In a sound
    And everybody wants some

    It's the sound they make in heaven
    It's a sound for here on earth
    I've heard it in the whispering
    Of the wonders that we search
    We've waited far too long
    To hear the healing of the stars
    'N' everybody wants some

    Everybody wants some
    Everybody wants some
    Everybody wants some
    Everybody wants some
    To feel alive

    Oh - does it get much better than this
    Oh - does it get much better, much better
    Oh - does it get much better than this, than this

    There's the sound that keeps you trying
    There's the sound that makes you smile
    There's a sound in every corner
    Of the world that we survive

    Your temple is the harmony
    You feel the sacred ground
    Just wishing for the secret
    To appear within the sound
    Watching for the morning star
    The rhythm of the sun
    I hear it in my waking dreams
    The singing has begun

    The passion that we walk upon
    The passion that we bring
    Is written for the mountains
    They love to hear us sing

    Everybody wants some
    Everybody wants some
    Everybody wants some
    Everybody wants some
    To feel alive

    Oh - doesn't get much better than this
    Oh - doesn't get much better than this, than this

    Who made me make believe
    I'm alive I'm living
    Never underestimate
    The signals coming to you
    Oh
    The sounding of the earth
    It shakes you, yes it shakes you
    Oh
    The sounding of the earth
    It shakes you, let it shake you

    Hep yadda

  10. Sam Baroglio

    Thanks for doing all this for me.

  11. Olias Lives

    Came to revisit this song in the wake of Chris's passing because it's the single most JOYOUS song they've ever done, IMHO. You did a great job with the many beautiful lightning photos, and I love the way it morphed into the cat shots during the song's final passage. Very nicely done...and I think the guys in Yes would like this, too. Peace...

    And God rest your soul, Chris. You will never be forgotten.

  12. robert pojedinec robert

  15. Nigel Thornberry

    One of the most unknown and underrated songs of all time

    Sancho Retáblez

    Agree. I'm a fan of Yes in the seventies, lost their track in the eighties and I've discover this fantastic song. Shame on me.

  16. Sean

  19. Mark Casali

    I've been wondering how that happened for years! Thanks for the insight..

  20. Mark C

    Woooahhhh that same flute bit is in the beginning of Phenomenal Cat by The Kinks.

    ...Apparently it was one of several preset samples that came with certain mellotrons back in the 60s :O
