Step one, find something to burn.
Step two, find a reason, you can keep your secrets deep inside.
Step three, find a light.

Don't hold it in,
'Cause the night comes quick.
Tearing at your heart with a taste of her kiss.
You've got to fight the feeling inside.
You've got to pull yourself away.

She keeps the matches under her mattress.
She keeps the smoking gun by her side.
She keeps the cold and the fever it catches.
You should know better by now.
She'll burn you down.

She is the spark on the carpet that starts to ignite.
When a strong wind blows in the middle of the night,
Like a sound, so loud, it's all you think about.
It's all you think about, she's all you think about.

Don't hold it in, no, just let go.
You can't win when you lose control.
You've got to make the daring escape.
You've got to pull yourself away.

She keeps the matches under her mattress.
She keeps the smoking gun by her side.
She keeps the cold and the fever it catches.
You should know better by now.
She'll burn you down.

Don't you know you're never going to make it out?
You know you're never going to stand your ground.
You know you feel it deep inside.
You know you need this to survive.
You know the only way to make it out.
You know you see it in her eyes.
It's how to start a fire.
(It's how to start a fire.)

You should know better by now.
She's gonna burn to the ground.
You should know better by now.
She'll burn you down.

She keeps the matches under her mattress.
She keeps the smoking gun by her side.
She keeps the cold and the fever it catches.
You should know better by now.
She'll burn you down.
She'll burn you down.

You should know better by now.
She'll burn you down.
