lyrics

I struck a match to watch it burn,
Till the flame found my finger.
I heard the message from the pain,
“Don’t you ever do that again.”

The next time I lit a match,
Before I even thought, I’d blown it out.
I made a habit of my doubt,
Cursing my every move now.

Our lives are singed around the edges no doubt,
But baby please don’t let the love burn out.

Stand with my back against the wind,
And wrap my hands around the flame,
Ignore that message from my brain
Forget that memory of the pain.

Our lives are singed around the edges no doubt,
But baby please don’t let the love burn out.
Our lives are singed around the edges no doubt,
But baby please don’t let the love burn down.
