white lightning lyrics – john waite

when i was young they took me to the dentist
i had a toothache, but that’s okay
they gave me some time and that night in my bedroom
i worked it loose, like i used to do

one little boy in a dentist’s chair
heard a hundred angels flying past him
what a gas, sitting there

the same little boy with a few more years
took a sniff of this, a taste of that
what a drag, nothing there

and then one day he saw you walk
and heard you didn’t talk
saw the writing on the wall
it didn’t thunder anymore

white lightening, it’s got nothing on you
lucy in the sky with diamonds
oh, it didn’t shine like you lord

white lightening, way out in the blue
with a million angels singin’
oh, it didn’t sound like you lord

come on to tell when i tell you to breathe in
i will take out everything while you’re sleeping
always refusing the heavenly music
when you awake, it will have a new meaning

white lightening, it’s got nothing on you
lucy in the sky with diamonds
oh, it didn’t shine like you lord

white lightening, way out in the blue
with a million angels singin’
oh, it didn’t sound like you lord

come on to tell when i tell you to breathe in
i will take out everything while you’re sleeping
always refusing the heavenly music
when you awake, it will have a new meaning

white lightening, it’s got nothing on you
lucy in the sky with diamonds
oh, it didn’t shine like you lord

white lightening, way out in the blue
with a million angels singin’
oh, it didn’t sound like you lord
