Lyrics:
There was a day saw lightning
There was a day saw lightning
I saw lightning
Hey hey hey saw lightning
Ho ho ho saw lightning
He he he saw lightning
Ha ha ha

Saw wind and rains
Saw mountains fall
Saw temples burn
And prison walls
Saw floods comin'
Saw children run
Got no more shelter
Got 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 in the longest day
And the hardest winter in the falling rain
Saw lightning
Saw lightning
Saw lightning
Hold 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

[Pharrell's mumble rap]

Then it came to me in a flash of light
By the sycamore tree in the dead of night
The bottom bell in the longest day
And the hardest winter in the falling rain
Saw lightning
Saw lightning
Saw lightning
Hold my head up
And it struck me down
Down to the ground
Struck me down
Struck me down
Struck me down to the ground

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 lay me here in the light?
Lord won't you take me and lead me to the light?
Lord's gonna take me and lay me in the light
Lord's gonna take me and meet me in the night

Then it came to me in a flash of light
By the sycamore tree in the dead of night
The bottom bell in the longest day
And the hardest winter in the falling rain
Saw lightning
Saw lightning
Saw lightning
Hold my head up
And it struck me down
Down to the ground
Struck me down
Struck me down
Struck me down to the ground

Hey hey hey saw lightning
I saw lightning
I saw lightning
I saw lightning
