You were the sun,
You were the fire
In my night sky.

We resolved each other's loose ends
To only untie ourselves
And split ways again
Just because you can
And you would have no qualm
With running back into his arms

For all your charms
And all your sadness
You drown me in your sweet madness

For all the words you'd say about me
Hold your tongue and go back to sleep
A little bit of release is not what you need

Go ahead and loose your reins
And suffer in shame 'cause you can't dispose
Of what you don't want to choose

Now could it be you, yeah
Now could it be you

Watch your step I'm digging in
You're slip sliding and sinking in
There's no reason, no regrets,
We're captains on a scuttled ship,
So dive right in
And save yourself

And tomorrow I'll find you've
Torn down these walls,
Nothing but the cause of my demise

And for the things you need
Save hypocrisy, save him or me
Lay me down, take me out
You can show me the door
Or you can just show me around
If you're looking for the answers

Don't shut me down
Don't lead me around,
Don't close me down 'cause

I've got something, something missing
Something killing, yeah you're such a mess
And work it out to bind me down

Yeah you're carnal rage,
Primal and caged.

I love the way you've struck my soul
Confused me whole, take a breath
And keep on running now

There's no use digging when you've got no ground
No ground to offer sleep,
No words to up and bury me

And I'm up in arms over your lack of heart
You've changed your mind so many times
And I'm sick of standing under no exit sign
This peril's all mine, yeah the flame's divine,
And I'd burn for you if it's what you wanted me to do
But I won't lose sleep if it's not me that you keep

And I wouldn't take anything that you gave me
Thoughts already riddle me, yes you divide me clean
And there's nothing I could steal,
Nothing that I could beg for that's real
'Cause it's all gone now and
I couldn't steal from a thief

If that's the way this has to end
Then cut my leash and let me mend
Repeat it, take away, string me back, prevent escape

The walls are gone, the sentiment's buried
My love for you is dead, how dare you still pretend
So take your shallow heart, and take your wounded love
And hang all of it out to dry
'Cause emptiness in love is the bitterest of lies
Empty out your head and leave the void you bought inside

My dear, you can't really find me at fault for this
Nothing's fair in love outside the lines
No, I can't lead a life that I cannot escape,
I said I can't put my faith in brighter days,
No, I can't burn a hole in your crashing plane,
And all I know is that where there's a will there's a way
