Thunder and Lightning

Do you know what lightning is? It is electricity in the air. But electricity in the air has no wires, so it jumps from one place to another.

It jumps from cloud to cloud or from a cloud to the ground. Lightning warms the air through which it goes. This makes the big noise that is thunder.

Spending my time, Watching the days go by. Feeling so small, I stare at the wall, Hoping that you Think of me too. I'm spending my time. I try to call But I don't know what to tell you. I leave a kiss On your answering machine. Oh, help me please, Is there someone who can make me Wake up from this dream? Spending my time, Watching the days go by. Feeling so small, I stare at the wall, Hoping that you Are missing me too. I'm spending my time. Watching the sun go down. I fall asleep To the sound of "tears of a clown", A prayer gone blind. I'm spending my time.
