I've got a lot to say I just don't know how to say it
I know all the rules I just can't seem to play it
You can tick the boxes, follow the equation
But the knife wont budge until you learn patience
I've got notes to sing I just can't reach the words
They're out on the ledge in the dark with the birds
But I'm trying to find them inside of you
Take my brain and break it in two

Melody, you're the only one who saves me
Out of the cold you take me
(Set me on fire)
You save me
(Set me on fire)

Melody, all I want is to remember what came before this winter
(Set me on fire)
Save me
Set me on fire

I've got a rock between my heart and mouth
I know how it got there but I can't pull it out
And the bones that once moved my fingers over keys
Are protesting in fist on my knees
Gotta find a way to unzip my skin 'cause this is a stranger's im living in

Melody, you're the only one who saves me
Out of the cold you take me
(Set me on fire)
You save me
(Set me on fire)

Melody, all I want is to remember what came before this winter
(Set me on fire)
You save me
Set me on fire

(What came before the winter)
Set me on fire

Melody, you're the only one who saves me
Out of the cold you take me
And set me on fire
You set me on fire

Melody, all I want is to remember what came before this winter
(Set me on fire)
Save me
Set me on fire

Melody, you're the only one who saves me
You set me on fire
