SAINT ETIENNE | Lightning Strikes Twice

LYRICS:

Crazy superstitions on my mind
Could they help me get you back for good?
Such a striking combination gone away
Could I save it if I knock on wood?

Did I have a chance and fail to keep it?
Lose my dream and let it slip away?
Will my destiny remain a secret?
Well that's okay yeah

Everyone should have a reason to believe
So I still believe
That lightning could strike twice for me
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Every time I find a feeling's gonna be
Suddenly I see
That lightning could strike twice for me
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Sitting down to read the stars again
Maybe they can tell me what's in store
Now I'm mixing up a magic potion
That's gonna get you banging on my door

Did I have a chance and fail to keep it?
Lose my dream and let it slip away?
Will my destiny remain a secret?
Well that's okay yeah

Everyone should have a reason to believe
So I still believe
That lightning could strike twice for me
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Every time I find a feeling's gonna be
Suddenly I see
That lightning could strike twice for me
Yeah, yeah, yeah

And I'm working on a silent song
Oh baby, oh baby
Got a feeling that it won't be long
Oh baby oh baby
Well don't you know that

Everyone should have a reason to believe
So I still believe
That lightning could strike twice for me
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Every time I find a feeling's gonna be
Suddenly I see
That lightning could strike twice for me
Yeah, yeah, yeah

REVIEWS:
x (...) listen to the way Sarah Cracknell sings on "Lightning Strikes Twice"—infusing the key lines with a combination of defeat and determination: "Everyone should have a reason to believe / So I still believe that lightning could strike twice for me." She sounds like Kylie's more aloof older sister, but using a tone that only a woman who knows her band has released their best album in a decade could get away with. Edward Oculicz

x Xenomania yields that rare beast, an emotional dance number (!), in the guise of Lightning Strikes Twice which recounts the laments of a failing new-ager. Alan Pedder
