Good is Good confusion?

A couple of months I was listening to Sheryl Crow’s Good is good. It’s a good song (pun not intended), however I noticed something that is scientifically wrong in the lyrics. Maybe it is suppose to be a metaphor, but if not, then it’s completely wrong. Anyways the lyrics go

“And everytime you hear the rolling thunder
You turn around before the lightening strikes
And does it ever make you stop and wonder
If all your good times pass you by”

However Lightning strikes first, and then you hear the Thunder. Light travels faster than sound. I thought it was funny, and stopped right there and thought did I really just hear that?

Edit: Maybe she is talking about just hearing thunder and then seeing the next lighting bolt that followed. Hmm, why do songs always have to be so elusive.
