lyrics

If you were a hand I’d clap with you
If you were a mess I’d clean you up
If you were a short dress I’d probably wish you were shorter

If you were a holiday you’d be Halloween
We’d dress up as ghosts I’d help you spook out a family,
haunt them until they leave so you are alone with me always

And I promise you I promise you
there’ll always be a place for you in my old heart
I promise you I promise you
there’ll always be a place for you in my old heart

CHORUS
For nothing compares to this thunder inside
When it rumbles like the deepest bass in the choir
When the temperatures rising – you feel you’re on fire
When you love me tonight

If you were a mandolin I’d tremolo
In the orchestra you’d be the piccolo solo
And sing over the harmony as I conduct you

If you were a hitchhiker I’d drive you home
You’d take me in for coffee and I’d never go
I’d tie you to the bed so I can be alone with you always

And I promise you I promise you
there’ll always be a place for you in my old heart
Yes I promise you I promise you
there’ll always be a place for you in my old heart

CHORUS

I hope that you can just begin to understand
The magic that I feel even when you just hold my hand
But do you think you'll feel this Thunder?
Do you want to feel this thunder thunder?
Do you want to feel this thunder thunder?
For nothing compares to this thunder inside?

CHORUS

Do you want to feel this thunder?
