You're so close you're so close but so far away
you've pushed me so far, am I just blind
like lipstick and shadows upon your face
the traces of what I've yet to find

You take back your promises with your lies
my heart still denies what my head finds
you're etching your ways deep into my mind
erasing the past for the last time

You're so close you're so close but so far away
you've pushed me so far, am I just blind
like lipstick and shadows upon your face
the traces of what I've yet to find

And I'll burn it down (you light my way)
but I won't feel the fire
and I'll burn it down
for you

Well I know my chin's been down
but it's on its way, back up

I want to be back in time
want to step back in my life (we've fallen)

You're so close you're so close but so far away
you've pushed me so far, am I just blind
like lipstick and shadows upon your face
the traces of what I've yet to find
It's about time I look to see if you're here
but I'm not sure I want to see you
My life's being consumed by what I fear
There's nothing I won't say or wouldn't do

And I'm burning down (you light my way)
but I won't fuel the fire
and I'll burn it down
for you
And I'll burn it down (you light my way)
but I won't feel the fire
and I'll burn it down
for you
