I was born when I met you, now, I'm dying to forget you
And that is what I know
Though I dreamed I would fall like a wounded cannonball
Sinking down with my heart in tow

Bright lights like white lightning
Who shot me down, who'll cut me down
I'm frozen in my bed till the day comes around
How I'm lost, how I'm found

There's a man all alone telling me his friends are gone
That they've died and flown away
So I told him he was wrong that your friends are never gone
If you look to the sky and pray

Bright lights like white lightning
Who shot me down, who'll cut me down
I'm frozen in my bed till the day comes around
How I'm lost, how I'm found

Someone told me a lie, someone looked me in the eye
And said time will ease your pain
But behold, when you fall it's the same old cannonball
Coming back for your heart again

Bright lights like white lightning
Who shot me down, who'll cut me down
I'm frozen in my bed till the day comes around
And it may come around, until the day comes around
How I'm lost, how I'm found

I was born when I met you, now, I'm dying to forget you
And that is what I know
