Yeah...
Yeah...

You made up your mind
Right before the sound can move
Softly from your lips
You leave behind
A choice which once before you thought you could not resist

You give what you have when you
Decide that you
Keep burning like fire,
It's burning you down

Sometimes they say this should feel something like fire
'Til it burns you and you can't,
No, you can't remain the same
Stay the same, stay the same, stay the same
I can't change

You're losing your light,
Everything that was yours just does not exist
So don't even try to say
Sorry for the things in life you might have missed

You give what you have when you
Decide that you
Keep burning like fire,
It's burning you down

Sometimes they say this should feel something like fire
'Til it burns you and you can't,
No, you can't remain the same
Stay the same,
Although you know
They say this should feel something like fire,
No, I can't change

Do what you wanna do
Keep building it higher,
Keep burning it down
You lose who you are when you
Keep burning like fire
Like it's all around

What do you have to prove
I'll die for you
Keep burning like fire
It's burning you down

Sometimes they say this should feel something like fire
'Til it burns you and you can't,
No, you can't remain the same
Stay the same,
Although you know
They say this should feel something like fire

'Til it burns you and you can't
No, you can't remain the same
Stay the same
Stay the same
Stay the same

    My Interpretation'Fire' is about cutting, or self harm. It 'feels something like fire' so that it feels right until it 'burns' (could also include literal burning intended for self harm). The act of self harm changes you so you can't 'remain the same'.

    My Interpretation"You give what you have when you
    Decide that you
    Keep burning like fire,
    It's burning you down

    Sometimes they say this should feel something like fire
    'Til it burns you and you can't,
    No, you can't remain the same
    Stay the same, stay the same, stay the same
    I can't change"
    I think this part is about love. How it should feel like fire burning in your insides. But sometimes the pressure of finding that on person to make you burn can make you "burn down". In other words it's can lead to self-harm.

    I believe this song is about a relationship where you WANT it to be perfect but, deep down you know it's not and then the sadness, the pressure, brings you down to the point of harming yourself.

    My InterpretationAs I forgot one thing. It's also about how love changes you no matter how much you try to stay the same. Every relationship leaves a mark, a scar. In this case it's self harm.
