Catching Lightning is a breezy island vibe about love. The chorus “It’s all about the timing, now we’re catching lightning” lays the groundwork for the track. Kolohe Kai comments, “The entire song hangs on the foundation of these words. Great things like true love will happen at the “right” time. Life doesn’t revolve around our schedule. We have to be patient and eventually we will see that the love of a lifetime came at the perfect time. Overall it takes being at the right place and time to “catch lightning” and find genuine lasting love.” Kolohe Kai, a masterful craftsman at creating love songs, takes a different approach on Catching Lightning. He reflects, “This song differs from the rest of my catalog in that it’s the only love song in which I express the reality of how hard it was to find true love. Most of my other titles embrace the fluffy “everything is all good” type of love song. This song is a genuine love story of patience, endurance and joy.”
