Lyrics
:

All I want is someone to believe in
But in who to believe is hard to define
When some say the future is unwritten
Some say the simple things in life are the best

When all is dark and dusty down the tracks
And all paths from exile have roadblocks on all points
Saying "No, No way out of here, go 
Back to from where you came from"

And some say when you're down you fight the hardest
Some tighten the belt while others let go
Someone once said, if you don't ask you don't receive
Someone showed me that written down in the back of a book

And as I reach out and see my life unfold
I tell you this because I truly believe in it
Ask and you'll receive my friend
Seek and you shall find
Oh won't you help me now.

Only the thunder knows
What drives a man in the darkest throes
Fortune and poverty
They're oh so close, oh so close
ONLY THE THUNDER

And some say everything must have a reason
Some say everything will one day soon come to pass
Some say that's life, that's the way the cards fall
Someone once said the answer's blowin' in the wind
And the word I seek to answer my questions

Is written down on everything I see
It's in the words written on the subway walls
Filling the concert halls.

(Strike up the band now)

Only the thunder knows
What drives a man in the darkest throes
Fortune and poverty
They're oh so close, oh so close
ONLY THE THUNDER

And what you give is what you get my friend
No one told you, has no one told you
Don't forget the drum rolls and earn that split
No one told you, and now I'm telling you

Only the thunder knows
What drives a man in the darkest throes
Fortune and drum drum drum
Oh so close, oh so close
ONLY THE THUNDER
ONLY THE THUNDER
