“Lightning & Thunder” by Jhené Aiko (ft. John Legend)

In “Lightning & Thunder”, Jhené Aiko and John Legend play the role of two lovers who have obviously broken up some time ago. And for the most part, what they are doing throughout is expressing amazement and honestly discomfort that despite such, they respectively retain strong feelings for each other. Indeed they liken the experience to being put under a “spell” by the other individual.

So basically, what we have here is a case of two exes who simply miss each other to a great degree. And overall, they are saying that this reality is “just like lightning and thunder”. And whereas the exact meaning of this metaphor is never specified, it likely points to the idea of these still-existent feelings being a considerable disturbance in their lives. 

So conclusively, what this all boils down to is that these two former lovers totally lack the wherewithal to get over each other.
