The Lightning I II Chord Arcade Fire

Capo 2 with [D] [G] [C] [Em]

The Lightning I


VERSE
Fourth place anthem playing tonight
On a broken radio
Thought we reached the mountain top
But now we just feel so low
The sky is breaking open, we keep hoping
In the distance, we’ll see a glow
Lightning light our way
Til the black sky, turns back to indigo

CHOURS
We can make it if you don’t quit on me
I won’t quit on you, don’t quit on me
We can make it, baby, please, don’t quit on me
I won’t quit on you, don’t quit on me
I’ll never quit on you

VERSE
We were born in paradise
Beneath a poisoned sky
Under a bad sign
The micro-age of Gemini
And we are still unlearning
Tirеs are burning in the middle of Rodеo Drive
Know that we’ve been beaten down and broken
But now we could testify

CHORUS
We can make it if you don’t quit on me
I won’t quit on you, don’t quit on me
We can make it, baby, please, don’t quit on me
I won’t quit on you, don’t quit on me
I’ll never quit on you

OUTRO
It’s not up to you
Some you win, some you lose
(When the lightning comes)
You don’t get to choose
So you win, so you lose
(When the lightning comes)

The Lightning II

VERSE
I heard the thunder on the blue sky
Perfect day, I wonder why
Am I the only one?
I hear the thunder and I feel
I’m going under, Jesus Christ
Was an only son

PRE-CHORUS
A day, a week, a month, a year
A day, a week, a month, a year
Every second brings me here
A day, a week, a month, a year
A day, a week, a month, a year
Every second brings me here

CHORUS
Waiting on the lightning
Waiting on the lightning
Waiting on the light
What will the light bring?

VERSE
I heard the thunder and
I thought it was the answer
But I find, I got the question wrong
I was trying to run away
But a voice told me to stay
And put a feeling in a song

PRE-CHORUS
A day, a week, a month, a year
A day, a week, a month, a year
Every second brings me here
A day, a week, a month, a year
A day, a week, a month, a year
Every second brings me here

CHORUS
Waiting on the lightning
Waiting on the lightning
Waiting on the light
What will the light bring?
Waiting on the lightning
Waiting on the lightning
Waiting on the light
What will the light bring?
