Charli XCX - Lightning

[Intro]
Oh-oh-oh
Oh

[Verse 1]
Don't know what to say
One look and then you blew me away
I'm spiraling all over the place
So lifted, got me reaching for grace
Body off the ground
Caught me by surprise
Like seeing shootin' stars in the sky
There's danger in the dark of your eyes
But something 'bout you brings me to life
Got me here and now
[Pre-Chorus]
Heartbreak already hit me once
They say that it won't happen twice

[Chorus]
You struck me down like lightning, lightning
You struck me down like lightning, lightning
My stupid heart can't fight it, fight it, uhh
So tell mе what you want and I'ma give it to ya
Like lightning
Blinded, blindеd
You took me down, I don't mind it, mind it
My stupid heart can't fight it, fight it, uhh
So tell me what you want and I'ma give it to ya
Like lightning

[Verse 2]
Electrified with love on the line
So different, every touch, every time
Connected by invisible wires
Don't you cut me out, whoa

[Pre-Chorus]
Heartbreak already hit me once
So swear that it won't happen twice

You struck me down like lightning, lightning
You struck me down like lightning, lightning
My stupid heart can't fight it, fight it, uh-uh
So tell me what you want and I'ma give it to ya
Like lightning
Blinded, blinded
You took me down, I don't mind it, mind it
My stupid heart can't fight it, fight it (uhh)
So tell me what you want and I'ma give it to ya
Like lightning

[Bridge]
Ah-ah, ah, ah, ah
Tell me what you want, tell me what you want
Lightning, lightning
Give it to ya, I'll give it to ya
Walk away, I'll follow my soul
Blinded, blinded
Yeah, tell me what you want, tell me what you want
Li-li-li-li-li-li-lightning, li-li-li-li-li-li-lightning
Li-lightning
Yeah, li-lightning

[Chorus]
You struck me down like lightning, lightning
You struck me down like lightning, lightning
My stupid heart can't fight it, fight it, uh-uh
So tell me what you want and I'ma give it to ya
Like li-lightning
Blinded, blinded
You took me down, I don't mind it, mind it
My stupid heart can't fight it, fight it, uh-uh
So tell me what you want and I'ma give it to ya
Like lightning

There's more than one song by Charli XCX with this name: 1). "Lightning" is the eighth track from Charli's fifth studio album, 'Crash'. It is an 80's-influenced pop song which features heavy bass, vocoder and some stabbing synths. She stated: "It's another super important song to me because I made this song with Ariel Rechtshaid, who is somebody I've collaborated with since I was seventeen. He was a vital part of my album 'True Romance', and it was really special to go back to the studio with him and make this song "Lightning", which I feel like could've been a part of True Romance. It really embodies that 80's emotional spirit and drama, which was really inspiring me for this record". 2). "Lightning" is an unreleased song which was co-written and produced by SOPHIE in December 2017 and possibly intended for Charli's third studio album, 'Charli' (2019). The full version leaked online on November 17, 2021.
