I've seen it all, I know your plan
I've heard your name, I know your reflection
So when you're crawling on the floor
Make me feel like I'm the exception
And I won't fall for it, I won't fall for you
I want better

Whispers won't get you very far
I know a story when I hear one
And if it's up to me my dear
I'll take the hard truth when it's given
So hold your breath, cos I won't listen
I want better

Yeah you're foolish, you're foolish, you're a fool

Take your promises, light them on fire
Empty words, they will burn from the pyre
Your love is cool, but I'm getting tired
Keep sending your letters, I'll light them on fire

I know you're jealous of the night
For when it's dark no one can see you
But there are secrets you can't hide
Those kind of shadows never suit you
And I won't fall for it, I won't fall for you
I want better

Take your promises, light them on fire
Empty words, they will burn from the pyre
Your love is cool, but I'm getting tired
Keep sending your letters, I'll light them on fire

Yeah you're foolish, you're foolish, you're a fool
Yeah you're foolish, you're foolish, you're a fool

And I can't stand to see you crumble
I can't stand to see a man unravel

Take your promises, light them on fire
Empty words, they will burn from the pyre
Your love is cool, but I'm getting tired
Keep sending your letters, I'll light them on fire
I'll light them on fire (x8)
