lyrics

Blackout, lightning strike
The windows are dark in the city tonight
The TV is off and that's so nice
We'll carry on by candlelight

Clap of thunder, blinding light
The walls around us drop out of sight
The rain and the wind are pouring in
The cats are under the couch again

The roads are flooded, there are no streetlights
I guess we won't be going anywhere tonight
So strike up a match and let's burn some wax
We've got a jug of red wine and all night to relax singing

Blackout, lightning strike
The windows are dark in the city tonight
The TV is off and that's so nice
We'll carry on by candlelight

Its just angels bowling up in heaven, so I was told
On lanes of silver with pins of gold
And when they start rolling and knocking them down
The thunder and the lightning crash to the ground

As a child I'd run out with bare feet
To dance on the banks of the river in the streets
Now when the storms roll in they still make me grin
And when the lights go out I feel so, young again, singing

Blackout, lightning strike
The windows are dark in the city tonight
The TV is off and that's so nice
We'll carry on by candlelight

The clocks are now blinking, the power has returned
But let's leave the lights off and watch the candle burn
We can can tell stories of storms that have come and gone
And we can make music and we can sing songs like

Blackout, lightning strike
The windows are dark in the city tonight
The TV is off and that's so nice
We'll carry on by candlelight
