lyrics

The fuse is lit
In yet another one of our twisted games
The sky turns red
As two young hearts go up in flames
You say I did
I swear I didn't but I've got no proof
I sense your doubt
Refusing to believe I speak the truth

Right down to the wire
We've lost all our fire
We're spiralling out of control

We'll do what we've always done and let the problem smoulder
Put it on the backburner 'til it gets out of hand
I've lost all the fight I had and you've grown even colder
Burned away and stretched so thin I don't know where I stand

The embers glow
A hand comes out of nowhere, strikes my face
I know that I
Can't stay another minute in this place
I say that's it
My fingers touch the handle of the door
You scream goodbye
I don't know how to feel any more

Right down to the wire
We've lost all our fire
We're spiralling out of control

We'll do what we've always done and let the problem smoulder
Put it on the backburner 'til it gets out of hand
I've lost all the fight I had and you've grown even colder
Burned away and stretched so thin I don't know where I stand any more
