light the fuse and pray
count your fingers as the blessings that they are
because someone's burning down tonight and it's not me
so close to the edge
here's to second chances that no one ever asked for
here's to second chances no one ever wanted
here's to the marks the hiding of scars
the maps that remind us to take it too far
the apologies spoken through spit and the blood
the cracking of teeth
the ugliest truth just beneath the skin
it's words or save your breath, air or error, holding on too tight
sorry you had to see that, the way my hands would shake
thought I was the stronger one, we all make our mistakes
if there's one thing I can't stand, it's written all over your face
you could have been most anything, but honest wasn't one
you can't stand the sound of your own voice and I don't blame you
all those thoughts inside your head and none of them can save you
on and on and on again
such a pretty wish, such a sweet mistake
hold your hand into the fire and we'll hope that it won't. . . light
