Two by two they came into that sunlit room
The only church in this town
The only town that I ever knew
I sat in the back row next to the open door
So I could feel the breeze on my skin
And know that there’s something more
There just is

I saw her walking down Belmont Avenue
From the back window of my father’s car
You waved at me and I waved at you
We kissed after years of waiting
Years of holding hands
And I felt something shift inside my soul
That no man could understand

I burned like a church on fire
In the light of the afternoon
I hope you can feel my desire
These flames rise for you

One by one I went through all the things I’d done
To get to this place I stand
Where I look down and don’t recognize my hands
I wrote you a letter every day that I was away
But how many words does one man need to say what he needs to say

I burned like a church on fire
In the light of the afternoon
I hope you can feel my desire
These flames rise for you

Yeah that was me
I poured the gasoline
I lit the match for everyone to see
The fireworks in my heart
Yeah that was me
I burned it to the ground
Yeah that was me
I burned it all down
Burned this to the ground
Everything that had let us down
Everything that had let us down

One by one I went through all the things I’d done
