Lyrics of The Shock of the Lightning

I'm all over my heart's desire
I feel cold but I'm back in the fire
Out of control but I'm tied up tight
Come in, come out tonight

I'm comin' up in the early morning
I feel love in the shock of the lightning
I fall into the blinding light
Come in, come out, come in, come out tonight

Love is a time machine
Up on the silver screen
It's all in my mind
Love is a litany
A magical mystery
And all in good time, and all in good time
And all in good time

I got my feet on the street but I can't stop flyin'
My head's in the clouds but at least I'm tryinÂ'
I'm out of control but I'm tied up tight
Come in, come out tonight

There's a hole in the ground into which I'm fallin'
So God's speed to the sound of the poundin'
I'm all into the blinding light
Come in, come out, come in, come out tonight

Love is a time machine
Up on the silver screen
It's all in my mind
Love is a litany
A magical mystery
And all in good time, and all in good time
And all in good time

It's all in my mind
Love is a time machine
Up on the silver screen
And all in good time, and all in good time
And all in good time

'The Shock of the Lightning' is a song by English rock band Oasis and is the fourth track from the band's seventh studio album 'Dig Out Your Soul'. The song was released as the first single from the album on 29 September 2008. It received its first airplay on 15 August 2008 on multiple UK and Irish radio stations including the Ian Dempsey Breakfast show on Today FM in Ireland, BBC 6 Music by Shaun Keaveny, and by Chris Moyles on BBC Radio 1. Chris was joined by Noel Gallagher on the 15 August 2008. Noel said of the song: 'If 'The Shock of the Lightning' sounds instant and compelling to you, it's because it was written dead fast. And recorded dead fast. 'The Shock of the Lightning' basically is the demo. And it has retained its energy. And there's a lot to be said for that, I think. The first time you record something is always the best'. It was described by 'NME' as 'a massively improved version of 'It's Gettin' Better (Man!!)' and featuring 'love is a litany/a magical mystery' as the song's chorus.

The single is the first Oasis song to feature a remix on a studio release. The B-side is a remixed version of the album track 'Falling Down' by The Chemical Brothers, who Noel has worked with in the past. However, a promo release of Oasis' cover of 'Cum On Feel the Noize' contained the 'Lynchmob Beats Mix' of 'Champagne Supernova' by Brandon Lynch that was also re-released as a stand alone promo for 'Stop the Clocks'. Consequently, this is their first official CD single release that does not contain a new track as a B-side.

On 30 July 2008, the official Oasis website posted a 'Dig Out Your Soul' trailer which contained a 23 second clip of the intro to 'The Shock of the Lightning' as well as a 20 second clip of the drum solo. On 15 August 2008, the song received its first airplay on the The Chris Moyles Show on BBC Radio 1 with Noel Gallagher present. Noel said of the song on Shaun Keaveny's Radio 6 show, 'It's a driving, pumping, pop, rock 'n' roll masterpiece'. In 'NME', the song was named as 'song of the week' and received a score of 9/10, despite being referred to as 'only the fifth best song on 'Dig Out Your Soul'.

'The Shock of the Lightning' entered the UK Singles Chart at #3. It peaked behind P!nk's #1 single 'So What' and 'Sex on Fire' by Kings of Leon at #2 during the week of its physical release. The song also reached #12 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart in the USA, making it their most successful single there since 'Don't Go Away', which peaked on the chart at #5 in 1998. It also reached #93 on the Billboard Hot 100, their first song to chart on the Hot 100 since 'Don't Look Back in Anger' in 1996.

There is also an excerpt of the song 'Champagne Supernova' at the very end of the track which is audible if the track is played in reverse.
