Lightning
One... Two... Three... Four....
A rumble..... Then a silence...
The rain didn't count as a sound in this storm too
It's falling drops were gentle, against this sky made without blue

Oh how life's greatest secrets, elude our greatest-

Why I was just beginning to worry, good thing I stayed and am not done!
Oh the fools that say to run, oh the fools that won't come nigh
Just because there's danger doesn't guarantee I'll-
