Your eyes can lift me up
Your smile can be so tough
Just desire was not enough
Now only fire can break this off

Chorus:
Show me a reason to forget these feelings
Show me a reason, a thing to believe in
Show me a reason to keep on dreaming
Show me a reason, or I'm just leavin

One more time we raise the dead
It's a crime, a shot to the head
In your eyes I see flames and then
It's crash and burn with you again

(Chorus)

Oooh, oooh (uh huh)
Oooh (that's right), oooh

Oooh (uh huh), oooh (that's right)
Oooh, oooh


Show me a reason (uh huh)
to forget these feelings (that's right)
Show me a reason (uh huh)
a thing to believe in (yeah)
Show me a reason (uh huh)
to keep on dreaming (that's right)
Show me a reason, (uh huh)
or I'm just leavin

    General CommentI love this song.

    I believe that it's about being in love with someone who doesn't share the same feelings for you, or being in love with someone who you just can't have because they are with someone else already which is why "Your smile can be so tough" because the person's smile isn't what you wish they meant by it, it's just a friendly smile.
    Wait, there's more, and without this person you feel so hopeless so useless having been shown a reason to forget your feelings for them you lose your will to go on "leaving" meaning suicide. Also about how the person your in love with can only end your affections if they are rude and straight forward "Now only fire can break this off".
