took you two years to win my heart
then two words to break it
the love you ignited,
you firefighted and roared
bellowing into the rainy night

they say heartbreak is good for the skin
but all that it's helped is my drinking
picking fights with myself and my friends
and my friends threatening to do me in

took you two years to win my heart
then two words to break it
more surprising than two years of lying is how people let you get away with it

saturday sleep-ins with no distractions
summer sun and songbirds
once kept afloat on a venetian boat
blotted out by your two words

mighty leon, wind the tape
and be sure of one thing
every song from a heart this mangled
will be draped in strings, strings, strings

    General Commentthe line:
    "The love you ignited
    If I had fighted and roared"
    i thought it said:
    "the love you ignited
    you fire fighted and roared"
    maybe im crazy but it does make sense.
    i love this song amazing string parts like in all final fantasy song.

    General Commentany ideas on what the two words were that broke his heart? I would say 'not now' or something along those lines

    General CommentThis has to be my favourite song, it's so beautiful. Lakremadude I was thinking that the two words might be "It's over." or something to that effect.

    General CommentI honestly think it is
    "The love you ignited
    If I had fighted and roared...
    Bellowing into the rainy night"

    Why would I believe this? Because it's as if the narrator is blaming himself for the horrid end. If he had put up a fight and convinced the lover to stay... well... who knows? His heart might not have been broken. The couple would've stayed together. It's just my humble take on this song.

    Anways, I'm new, and I'm not quite sure how to edit lyrics. Hehee. Sorry.

    But this song is lovely.

    General Comment"They say heartbreak is good for the skin"

    Who the fuck says that? The next three lines are wonderful, but that one just totally jolts me out of the song.
