I'd set your heart on fire
(When you saw me on that first day)
But arson is no way to make a love burn brighter
(Said I'd blossom under your care)

Always thought that the devil was the only one
Who knew the ins and the outs of the ways of love
(Wrap me up tight inside your wing)
So I sold off my heart to see how this would end
Now I can't move an inch for fear it will begin
(Is it safe now, is it safe to breathe?)

You come in between me and the darkness
(I force my eyes open and now who has changed?)
Please don't you ever leave
(You look different, so different today)

Holding your eyes in the hardest stare
Running around like you wanted me there
(Backwards, forwards, backwards going out of my mind)
Lookin' at me like I'm the hottest in town

Then turnin' your back when you're movin' around
(Backwards, forwards, backwards, spinning way off time)
I ain't gonna listen to you no more
Breakin' outta this place throwin' open the door

(Fire to water, fire, baby, baby's putting me out)
Use me up just to fan the flame
But you'll be sorry as I'm walkin' away
(Fire to water, fire, baby, baby's putting me out)

You're the truest light I've known
(I'm the one who decides who I am)
But someday I'll learn I don't need your fuel to burn
(I'm the one who will shed this old skin)

Always thought that hell was the only place
Hot enough to melt our hearts into a locked embrace
(I force my eyes open and now who has changed?)
There's something so safe about a lack of air
The only way to make sure that you'll always be there
(I feel different, so different today)

Holding your eyes in the hardest stare
Running around like you wanted me there
(Backwards, forwards, backwards going out of my mind)
Lookin' at me like I'm the hottest in town

Then turnin' your back when you're movin' around
(Backwards, forwards, backwards, spinning way off time)
I ain't gonna listen to you no more
Breakin' outta this place throwin' open the door

(Fire to water, fire, baby, baby's putting me out)
Use me up just to fan the flame
But you'll be sorry as I'm walkin' away
(Fire to water, fire, baby, baby's putting me out)

(I'm gone)
We're buried underground
(I'm gone)
That's where these hearts are found
Devil spins this world around

(I'm gone)
Only love can save us now
Do you wanna go underground
(I'm gone)
Lay buried underground

(Don't you wanna?)
Did you really change your mind?
(Aint you gonna?)
Was this fire way too bright?

(Don't you wanna?)
Could this be your only crime?
(Aint you gonna?)
Did you really change your mind?

Holding your eyes in the hardest stare
Running around like you wanted me there
(Backwards, forwards, backwards going out of my mind)
Lookin' at me like I'm the hottest in town

Then turnin' your back when you're movin' around
(Backwards, forwards, backwards, spinning way off time)
I ain't gonna listen to you no more
Breakin' outta this place throwin' open the door

(Fire to water, fire, baby, baby's putting me out)
Use me up just to fan the flame
But you'll be sorry as I'm walkin' away
(Fire to water, fire, baby, baby's putting me out)
