rock 90s alternative rock alternative live


"Lightning Crashes" is a song by alternative rock group Live from their 1994 album, Throwing Copper. While it wasn't officially released as a commercially purchasable single in the United States, the song received enough radio airplay to peak at the #12 position on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay music chart in 1995. The song also topped the Billboard Album Rock Tracks (10 weeks) and Hot Modern Rock Tracks (9 weeks) charts also in 1995. Because it was not released as a commercial single in the United States, it was ineligible for the Billboard Hot 100. Despite this, the song is considered to be the biggest hit of Live's career. The song was also a top 40 hit in the United Kingdom. The U.K. single was released in several formats and versions. The band dedicated the song to Barbara Lewis, a 19 year-old friend of the band who was killed in 1993 by a drunk driver who was fleeing from the police after a robbery in York, Pennsylvania. Barbara had many of her organs donated including a liver to a 10 month old baby, and the song lyrics reflect how her death enabled others to continue living.

Lightning Crashes - Live

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, I feel it comin' back again
Like a rollin' thunder chasing the wind
Forces pullin' from the centre of the Earth again
I can feel it

Lightning crashes, a new mother cries
This moment she's been waiting for
The angel opens her eyes (Her eyes, her eyes)
Pale blue coloured eyes,
Presents the circle
Puts the glory out to hide, hide

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

All right, all right, all right
I can feel it comin' back again
Like a rollin' thunder chasing the wind
Forces pullin' from the centre of the Earth again
I can feel it
I can feel it comin' back again
Like a rollin' thunder chasing the wind
Forces pullin' from the centre of the Earth again
I can feel it
I can feel it comin' back again (Back again)
Like a rollin' thunder chasing the wind
Forces pullin' from the centre of the Earth again (Centre of the Earth)
I can feel it, I can feel it, I can feel it
