Beck Saw Lightning Lyrics

Ooh, ooh

Ooh, ooh

There was a day I saw lightning

There was a day I saw lightning (I saw lightning)

Hey, hey, hey, saw lightning

Ho-ho-ho, I saw lightning

He-he-he, I saw lightning

Ha-ha-ha

Saw wind and rain

Some mountains fall

Saw temples burn

And prison walls

Saw floods coming

Saw children run

Got no more shelter, no more sun

Then it came to me in a flash of light

By the sycamore tree in the dead of night

The bottom bell and the longest day

And the hardest wind and in the falling rain

Saw lightning, saw lightning, saw lightning

Held my head up and it struck me down

Down to the ground

It struck me down, struck me down

Struck me down to the ground

There was a day, saw lightning

There was a day, saw lightning

Hey, hey, hey, saw lightning

Ho-ho-ho, saw lightning

He-he-he, saw lightning

Ha-ha-ha

When it ain’t up, wonder where it go

Hold the sea as somewhere to row

Over did then dead heroes

Make it easy and sunny and go

We hold the sea and know the unknown

Old Man Dan, ‘cuz some of them are low

Wondering ’bout where do we go

Until, then, we boat

Then it came to me in a flash of light

By the sycamore tree in the dead of night

The bottom bell and the longest day

The hardest wind and the fallen rain

Saw lightning, saw lightning, saw lightning

I held my head up

And it struck me down (Ooh!)

Down to the ground (Ooh!)

It struck me down, struck me down

Struck me down on the ground (Ooh!)

Hey, hey, hey, saw lightning

Ho-ho-ho, saw lightning

He-he-he, saw lightning

Ha-ha-ha, saw lightning

Saw lightning, saw lightning, saw lightning

Lord, won’t you take me and lead me to the light? (Ooh!)

Lord, won’t you take me and lead me to the light? (Ooh!)

The Lord’s gonna take me and leave me in the light (Ooh!)

The Lord’s gonna take me and leave me in the light (Ooh!)

Then it came to me in a flash of light (Ooh!)

By the sycamore tree in the dead of night (Ooh!)

The bottom bell and the longest day (Ooh!)

The hardest wind and the fallen rain (Ooh!)

I saw lightning, saw lightning, saw lightning (Ooh!) (Ooh!) (Ooh!)

I held my head up (Ooh!)

And it struck me down (Ooh!)

Down to the ground (Ooh!)

It struck me down, struck me down

Struck me down on the ground (Ooh!)

I saw lightning

I saw lightning

I saw lightning

I saw lightning
