"Charming the Flames" as written by and Nicholas Jon Peill....
There's no need
To bring me down
There's no need to follow me
Around this town

'Cause making arrangements
For all our alibis
Spent implications
And used up all our lies

There's no need
To bring me down
There's no need to follow me
Around this town

Fate, fragile in our hands
Protected in our homes
Hide it while it's still alive
I'm on my way

'Cause passion makes you
Vain distracted, bored and pale
Lying while the flames arrive
And well, I wish I had a life

There's no need
To put me down
I've been lying in the place
Where I was found

You're making excuses
We're just a compromise
A used up distraction
From what you had in mind

You've already
Brought me down
Spent a lifetime
Waiting quietly to drown

We wasted arrangements
And watched our lives go dry
A broken attachment
To what we thought was right

Fate, fragile in our hands
Protect it in our homes
Hide it while it's still alive
I'm on my way

'Cause passion makes you
Vain, distracted, bored and pale
Lying while the flames arrive
And well, I wish I had a life
