  • Make a wish on our sorry little hearts
    Have a smoke, pour a drink, steal a kiss in the dark
    Fingernails on my skin like the teeth of a shark
    I'm intoxicated by the lie

    In the chill of your stare I am painfully lost
    Like a deer in the lights of an oncoming bus
    For the thrill of your touch I will shamefully lust
    As you tell me we're nothing but trouble

    Heart's on fire tonight
    Feel my bones ignite
    Feels like war, war
    Feels like war, war
    Heart's on fire tonight
    Feel my bones ignite
    Feels like war, war
    Feels like war, war

    We go together or we don't go down at all
    We go together or we don't go down at all
    We go together or we don't go down at all, whoa

    Fail-safe trigger, lock down call
    Wipe the dry clean slate, quick, sound the alarm
    No escape from the truth and the weight of it all
    I am caught in the web of a lie

    And the bitch of it all is that I'm running from
    The desire of the people to whom I belong
    At the end of the day you can tell me I'm wrong
    'Cause you went to all of this trouble

    Heart's on fire tonight
    Feel my bones ignite
    Feels like war, war
    Feels like war, war
    Heart's on fire tonight
    Feel my bones ignite
    Feels like war, war
    Feels like war, war

    We go together or we don't go down at all
    We go together or we don't go down at all
    We go together or we don't go down at all, whoa
    (Let's go)

    Heart's on fire tonight
    Feel my bones ignite
    It feels like war (it feels like war)
    Love feels like war (love feels like war)

    Heart's on fire tonight
    Feel my bones ignite
    Feels like war, war
    Feels like war, war
    Heart's on fire tonight
    Feel my bones ignite
    Love feels like war, war
    Feels like war, war
    (One more time!)

    We go together or we don't go down at all
    We go together or we don't go down at all
    We go together or we don't go down at all (don't go down at all)

    Is this the end of us or just the means to start again Writer/s: ALEXANDER WILLIAM GASKARTH, MICHAEL JOSEPH GREEN
