They always told me you shouldn't play with gasoline
all it takes is just one spark and you'll start a fire
but I said fuck it and I doused myself and lit a match and
now I’m burning up, now I’m going down and....

I feel it, it’s coming, it’s draping over me
Blocking out all of the light, touching everything that I see
I used to dream about you, now I can’t dream without you
But I find that day by day, it goes away

On the second day, God divided the light
One to rule the day, and one to rule the night
And when I look at her, I see her shining down, I think out loud
Now I’m going down, now I’m going down and....

It’s not the path that I choose, it’s just my destiny
If you’d bring it back to me, if you’d listen to what I say, girl
Wreak everything he gave you, shun from the light that saves you
Still I find that day by day, it goes away

Every time, every time I’m walking home
Every single time, I walk alone
See her standing, see her sitting, see her laying, see her go
Now I’m moving on, now I’m going down and....

I draw the shadows around me, I push the sun light away
And it affects the way I feel, and that’s the way I feel today
I used to dream about you, girl I can’t dream with out you now
Yeah everyday, it never goes away
