You're Like Lightning Striking Twice

from by Mount Peru



Don’t need no charmful of finches, don’t want no clamor of rooks
Cuz I’m not falling for that again, the oldest one in the book
Don’t want no diamond star halo, I got a hat full of wine
I need a cloak full of eagles, just to get through the night

So clench your hands and close your eyes
Your heart beats circles around mine
Just like the ocean when you slide so nice
You’re like the lightning striking twice

You got your black magic working, they dig what you’re throwing down
But me I can’t get arrested, anywhere in this town
I got the teeth of the Hydra, stuck in the side of my head
I knew that you was a sorceress, your clean white sheets turning red

Entombed in emerald, sealed in jade
Yeah Tutankhamen got it made
Do Paint It Black like in the good old days
With rubied concubines he laid

Do you know what I mean
I think you know what I mean
Yeah do you know what I mean
I know you know what I mean

Now do you know what I mean
I think you know what I mean
She got a wicked machine
If you know what I mean
Look out!
