We caught a spark
And lingered like a feather
If every night's a violent fight
How can we hold this thing together?

We're throwing all the money away
I don't need to pay for our mistake

Sunrise to fireflies
These white lies have only left me wasted
And now I'm running out of time
But I don't want to wait
Just blow me away
Out like a birthday candle
Oh, honey, do what you want
'Cause I won't remember

Caught off guard
It left my heart in ruin
All my thoughts just ran apart
Like a pack of restless children

I've landed in the worst of worlds
With a dry canteen and plastic sword

Goodbye to blue skies
These white lies have set this heart on fire
And now you want to watch it burn
But I don't want to wait
Just blow me away
Out like a birthday candle
Oh, honey, do what you want

    General CommentI think it's about deciding to end a relationship because you know it is going to end eventually [via not being that great of a match to begin with]

    "We caught a spark" - small romantic interest

    "And lingered like a feather" - dragged it out even though they might have not been that great of a couple

    "But I don't want to wait
    Just blow me away
    Out like a birthday candle" - he doesn't want to drag it out anymore, just wants to end it know, etc.
