Beck “Saw Lightning” Lyrics

Beck “Saw Lightning” co-written by Pharrell Williams

 

 
Ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo
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, saw lightning
He he he, saw lightning
Ha ha ha

Saw windy manes
Saw mountains fall
Saw temples burn
Prison walls
Saw floods coming
Saw children run
We 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
The hardest wind and the fallen rain
Saw lightning, saw lightning, saw lightning
I 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 I saw lightning
There was a day I saw lightning
Hey hey hey, saw lightning
Ho ho ho, saw lightning
He he he, saw lightning
Ha ha ha

When they’re named, I wonder where it go
Hold the sea, where it’s sunny where I grow
One more day then daily I know
High, need trees, when it’s sunny and go
More than fee, by money, I know
Pull me in, gotta start down low
Don’t gotta sing, with weather I go
Partner we go

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
Down to the ground
It struck me down, struck me down
Struck me down on 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 lead me to the light?
Lord, won’t you take me and lead me to the light?
The Lord’s gonna take me and leave me in the light
The Lord’s gonna take me and leave me in the light

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 or in the fallen rain
I saw lightning, saw lightning, saw lightning
I held my head up
And it struck me down
Down to the ground
It struck me down, struck me down
Struck me down on the ground

I saw lightning
I saw lightning
I saw lightning
I saw lightning
