Why do I bother, that's what you say
And I know you're tired but don't fade away
It's been a long year, it's been a long day
You can't remember when it was not that way
When everything was okay

But I'm not gonna let you burn your own house down
I know you don't like living in it now
The halls are empty and the walls are bare
But I believe you, you're gonna find your love there

You door was open
And your love was left
Now all that you want is to burn the rest
But if your heart is open
Some love will come back
I know you don't believe me I can see you light a match
I can see you light a match

But I'm not gonna let you burn your own house down
I know you don't like living in it now
The halls are empty and the walls are bare
But I believe you, you're gonna find your love in there

I'm not trying to say you got no right to complain at all
What I'm saying is I believe in you and I will not believe
That everything is lost

Get up on the roof and look around
Get up on the roof and look around
Get up on the roof and look around

I'm not gonna let you burn your own house down
I know you don't like living in it now
The halls are empty and the walls are bare
But I believe you, you're gonna find your love in there
You're gonna find your love in there
