I was wishing my whole life
For a lightning wife
She had rain drop wings
Her fingers felt like velvet green branches

I was human she was god
But I was dressed up in lightning clothes
So she couldn't see that I was beneath her
And she said she'd stay for a while

So she took me to the sky
She never noticed that I had no wings
I felt her skin against mine
And the stars melted into dandelion wine

And her eyes are like sunflowers and thunderclouds
And her tongue is like raspberries in June
And I keep thinking that if I could only keep her
She won't notice I'm not worthy of a lightning girl

And I remember the Christmas's without her
I was alone and drunk and staring at the tree
And she was whispering through the cracks in the window
But I couldn't hear her 'cause I didn't love me
