When you set a match to your heart
Fueling it with bitterness and doubt
That's a blaze that once it starts
No amount of tears can put out
I know you're scared
But no one's spared
When you play with matches
You've got me walking through fire
You've got me walking through fire

Maybe you've been burned by lovers
Maybe you've been scarred by the pain
But baby I'm not like the others
Drawing moths to a flame
Spite is like a spark
Crackling in the dark
Consuming all it catches
And you've got me walking through fire
You've got me walking through fire to get to you
You've got me walking through fire
(walking through fire)
You've got me walking through fire
(walking through fire)

You can see the toll it's taking
You can feel the faith it's shaking
You can hear the heart it's breaking now

Baby I've burned by the fever
I've been scorched by desire
But baby I'm not your deceiver
Or your eloquent liar
Your jealous heart is tearing us apart
And turning love to ashes
When you've got me walking through fire
You've got me walking through fire to get to you
You've got me walking through fire
You've got me walking through fire
You've got me walking through fire
(walking through fire)
You've got me walking through fire
(walking through fire)
As the flames shoot higher
You've got me walking through fire
(walking through fire)
Walking
