lyrics

Tonight, lightning will strike ground
Get yourself ready, the General blows through town
You feel like a fool cause the fuel she's got you need to burn
Then she laughs as she pulls you to dance, lesson learned

If you can't quite keep up she will pull you in
Any line you try you know you could never win
And from the moment you start there's no going back
She will get into you like a heart attack
Not unkind she will guard your soul
With every fibre of her being spinning outta control
The wave just right crashes tonight

Good times will be found
Get yourself ready, the bombshell rocks this town
You think that you're shy, still you try your luck taking a chance
Then you laugh as she grabs you to dance, lesson learned

She's your angel above, your devil below
Christ, she's got the spirit that you've never known
And if you don't give love then you can't risk sin
If you don't put out you can never win
'Cause heaven lights up the party in hell
When the phoenix rises from the ashes of the spell
The wave just right crashes tonight
Lightning will strike ground, get yourself ready

If you can't quite keep up she will pull you in
Any line you try you ain't ever gonna win
She's got the spirit you been dying to know
Forever your angel and your devil below
The phoenix survives the fallout of the spell
Now heaven lights up the party in hell
If you don't give love you can't risk sin
If you don't put out you will never ever win
The hearts of the few, you praise
The hearts of a son and daughter raised
The hearts of friends, lovers come and gone
This island still holding on

The wave just right
The wave just right
The wave crashes just right
So lookout! Tsunami tonight
