"Hide Your Matches" as written by and Scooter Carusoe Hillary Lindsey....
I could catch just like a candle
Melt myself down to an end
And I have no way of ever coming back 'round here again
Or I could glow just like an amber
Rising out of an autumn fire
Drifting toward the heavens floating higher and higher
You better hide your matches boy

Cause I could spark like thin white paper
Wrapped tight 'round some cigarette
And leave nothing but the smell of smoke and the bitter taste of regret
Or I could get hot like them coals that turn the water into steam
And fall down around you like some misty morning
You better hide your matches boy
You better hide your matches boy

[Chorus:]
Oh, cause I'm bound to lose all I am right here in your arms
And it ain't gonna take much
And it ain't gonna take long
So you best turn your eyes if you're not ready tonight
To watch me burn like this
You better hide your matches

Cause I can't afford to let you go
I'm afraid to draw you near
Cause I could get so lost in you that I might disappear
And the words are on the tip of my tongue
But you won't hear a sound
Cause once that fire gets going there's no way to slow it down
You better hide your matches boy
You better hide your matches boy

[Chorus]

You better hide your matches boy
Oh, yeah
You better hide your matches boy
