Lightning Crashes Lyrics

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 even close the door

Lightning crashes, an old mother dies
Her intentions fall to the floor
The angel closes her eyes, the confusion that was hers
Belongs now, to the baby down the hall

Oh now feel it comin' back again
Like a rollin' thunder chasing the wind
Forces pullin' from the center of the earth again
I can feel it

Lightning crashes, a new mother cries
This moment she's been waiting for
The angels open her eyes, pale blue colored iris
Presents the sun and puts th glory out to hide, hide

Oh, now feel it comin' back again
Like a rollin' thunder chasing the wind
Forces pullin' from the center of the earth again
I can feel it

It doesn't matter what it means to everyone else. Whatever it means to you the listener is what matters. They way the song makes you feel inside is what its all about.

I've always found this song a little sad but incredibly moving. The universal consciousness that connects us all can be felt if you are just still enough.

The brilliance of this song is bringing together lifes 2 strongest emotions, LIFE(BIRTH) and DEATH(ABS-END) having a sister in-law who is a mid-wife was truly a grace from God! A FATHER

You guys are all wrong. This song is not about reincarnation. This song qwas written after the bands friend Barb was killed in a car crash by a drunk driver.Barb donated lots of her organs...

I always thought it was, 'pale blue colored eyes, presents the suck, puts the glory up to high, high'

Lead singer Ed Kowalczyk said, I wrote 'Lightning Crashes' on an acoustic guitar in my brother's bedroom shortly before I had moved out of my parents' house and gotten my first place of my own. Kowa

Everyone is focused on one line of this song. The angel takes life and it gives life. Yes, the cycle of life and the power of nature (or God).

This song is clearly about the circle of life. An older mother down the hall is dying and a new baby is being born from a new mother down the hall. The overall confusion of life is indicative of cycle

The song is in dedication to a good friend of the bands...Barbara Lewis..she died in a car accident at the age of 19..her organs were donated to a baby that would have died otherwise
