The Wanted


When I first heard that song that plays on the radio all the time, "Glad You Came" I thought it was catchy so I downloaded their album on my phone because I pay for a monthly music subscription and what better way to use it that attempting to broaden my musical horizons?

Unfortunately due to my tendencies to download everything and anything that catches my ear I have way too much on there to ever really get a chance to catch what I am listening to.   Mind you sometimes that is a good thing because some "music" is just crap and I am way too lazy it song by song and clean out the stuff I don't like. 

Anyhow, the other day I just happened to have my phone in my hand when the following song came on (I was texting a friend) so when I started singing along to it because I like it I took the time to look at what and who it was.  And then I played it again. 



While I am usually not a huge fan of boy bands I kind of like The Wanted.  Or at least I like this song.  I can relate to it.  It reminds me of a person in my life, how I feel about them.  I love music like that, after all that is what music is supposed to do.  Make you feel, bring to life emotions or memories.

Here are the lyrics in case you are interested:

"Lightning"

You're in control
Pressin' pause on my heartbeat
Someone stole all the air
So I can't speak now
I know the chase is on
I feel as though
My time has come

How many times do I fly
Through your head space
Now it's speeding away
From the safe place

Yeah, your skin
The touch, the kiss
The rush too much
And here it comes

When your lips touch mine
It's the kiss of life
I know
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning

We touch like,
Like it's our first time
Oh oh
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning now

Oh oh
Oh oh

Just you and me and the
Coats in the back room
Learning things they don't
Teach in the classroom

Now, you're here
I feel the fear
But everything
Is oh so clear

I've been addicted to you
Since the first hit
Out of control like a surge of electric

Yeah, your skin
The touch, the kiss
The rush, too much
And here it comes

When your lips touch mine
It's the kiss of life
I know
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning

We touch like,
Like it's our first time
Oh oh
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning now

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh

Your skin, the touch
The kiss, too much
Your skin, the touch
The kiss, the rush
Your skin, the touch
The kiss, too much
The rush, the rush
The rush, the rush

When your lips touch mine
It's the kiss of life
I know
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning

We touch like,
Like it's our first time
Oh oh
I know that it's a little bit frightening
We might as well be playing
With lightning now

Oh oh
Oh oh
