Running away, I knew I was wrong
I tried to fit in where I didn't belong
Wearing their clothes, playing their games
Being a part of that urban decay

Don't burn the fires, I'm never coming home
Don't burn the fires, I'm never coming home

When the morning sky was cold and grey
I could hear the whispers of my own mistakes
Those warning eyes, that final touch
No one seems to care that much

So don't burn the fires, I'm never coming home
Don't burn the fires, I'm never coming home

And when I'd reached my destination
I thought someday I might return
Cause deep inside was the need
to feel the home fires burn
But a faltering voice merely whispered my name as if it never expected to hear it again
And my heart grew cold to that indifferent sound
And I slowly laid the receiver down

Don't burn the fires, Don't burn the fires, Don't burn the fires, I'm never comming home
