The lights on the ceiling all shattered like ice
As the room fell to dark
The only light shone from the eyes of the cats.
The storm winds were howling outside in the night
And the sound of the hail
Struck fear in my heart for I knew I was done.
(The) Darkness outside found a way in my soul
(And) In there the lightning was tearing a hole.
There was a huge storm that was sweeping across the nation to the east. Many people lost power. There was a lot of wind. There was darkness and lightning, at the same time.
