lyrics

I got to loving those dark storm clouds
'cause I knew they'd reveal a silver lining
I'd reveal myself to you entirely
whether the weather was dark or inviting

they say lightning never strikes twice
upon the same old piece of ground
but I've been struck down
by you more than twice

those dark clouds are letting go tonight
they're breaking up and breaking down and crying
I didn't wanna let you see me cry, but darling
now you've seen more than I can hide by smiling

they say lightning never strikes twice
upon the same old piece of ground
but I've been struck down
by you more than twice

don't you let yourself down
don't you sell yourself short now
there is no strength I possess that you don't
I will never let you down
I have seen it in you baby
I have seen it in you my dear friend
I have seen it coming through the clouds
through the clouds
more than twice
