Make a wish on our sorry little hearts
Have a smoke, pour a drink, steal a kiss in the dark
Fingernails on my skin like the teeth of a shark
I'm intoxicated by the lie

In the chill of your stare I am painfully lost
Like a deer in the lights of an oncoming bus
For the thrill of your touch I will shamefully lust
As you tell me we're nothing but trouble

Hearts on fire tonight
Feel my bones ignite
Feels like war, war
Feels like war, war
Hearts on fire tonight
Feel my bones ignite
Feels like war, war
Feels like war, war

We go together or we don't go down at all
We go together or we don't go down at all
We go together or we don't go down at all, whoa

Fail-safe trigger, lock-down call
Wipe the drive, clean-slate
Quick, sound the alarm
No escape from the truth
And the weight of it all
I am caught in the web of a lie

And the bitch of it all is that I'm running from
The desire of the people to whom I belong
At the end of the day you can tell me I'm wrong
'Cause you went to all the trouble

Hearts on fire tonight
Feel my bones ignite
Feels like war, war
Feels like war, war
Hearts on fire tonight
Feel my bones ignite
Feels like war, war
Feels like war, war

We go together or we don't go down at all
We go together or we don't go down at all
We go together or we don't go down at all, whoa
(Let's go!)

Hearts on fire tonight
Feel my bones ignite
It feels like war
(It feels like war)
Love feels like war
(Love feels like war)

Hearts on fire tonight
Feel my bones ignite
Love feels like war
Feels like war, war
Hearts on fire tonight
Feel my bones ignite
Love feels like war
Feels like war, war

We go together or we don't go down at all
We go together or we don't go down at all
We go together or we don't go down at all

Is this the end of us
Or just the means to start again?

    My InterpretationI think that this song is about two people who are having an affair with each other. They both know that what they're doing is wrong but they keep seeing each other anyways. Eventually they're so deep in the lies that they're bound to get caught. In the end they have to face the decision: Do I stay with the person I'm with or do I stay with you and just start all over again?

    General CommentThese aren't the lyrics. Really? Sounds more like Tech N9ne or ICP than a song ATL would ever sing

    General CommentOur lyric database service has the wrong lyrics for this song. I have bypassed them and the correct lyrics should be showing up now.
