Lightning struck a while ago
And it's blazing much too fast
But give it rain of waiting time
And it will surely pass
Blow over


And it's happening so quickly
As I feel the flaming time
And I grope about the embers
To relieve my stormy mind
Blow over


Shaken this has left me
And laughing and undone
With a blinding bolt of sleeplessness
That's just begun
And a windy crazy running
Through the nights and through the days
And a crackling
Of the time burned away
Burned away


Now I feel it in my blood
All hot and sharp and white
With a whipcrack and a thunder
And a flash of flooding light


But there'll be a thick and smoky
Silence in the air
When the fire finally dies
And I'm wondering who'll be left there


In the ashes of the time
Burned away
Burned away


(1978)
