lyrics

There were fires, there were fires in the buildings
And they spread until they were within me
In my chest and burning in my lungs
I could not speak for fear I'd come undone.

She said, she said "We've had our fill of heartbreak in this town."

Well Mother always said I was dangerous
My dreams are the only place things are how they're meant to be
But you say there's no such thing as destined
It's all circumstantial evidence, fate is irrelevant
But when you're close to me, I don't believe it for a second.

I can feel my youth, feel my youth escape my bones
Like the rush of air out of my lungs following a sucker punch.
Can the morning sun warm my soul enough to overcome my fears and let them go?

Well Mother always said I was dangerous
My dreams are the only place things are how they're meant to be
But you say there's no such thing as destined
It's all circumstantial evidence, fate is irrelevant
But when you're close to me, I don't believe it for a second.
