  • Things we lost to the flames
    Things we'll never see again
    All that we've amassed
    Sits before us, shattered into ash

    These are the things, the things we lost
    The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire
    These are the things, the things we lost
    The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire

    We sat and made a list
    Of all the things that we have
    Down the backs of table tops
    Ticket stubs and your diaries, I read them all one day

    When loneliness came and you were away
    Oh they told me nothing new
    But I love to read the words you used
    These are the things, the things we lost

    The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire
    These are the things, the things we lost
    The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire

    I was the match and you were the rock
    Maybe, we started this fire
    We sat apart and watched
    All we had burned on the pyre

    You said, "We were born with nothing
    And we sure as hell have nothing now"
    You said, "We were born with nothing
    And we sure as hell have nothing now"

    These are the things, the things we lost
    The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire
    These are the things, the things we lost
    The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire

    Do you understand that we will never be the same again
    Do you understand that we will never be the same again
    The future's in our hands and we will never be the same again
    The future's in our hands and we will never be the same again

    These are the things, the things we lost
    The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire
    These are the things, the things we lost
    The things we lost in the fire, fire, fire

    These are the things, the things we lost
    These are the things we lost in the fire fire fire

    Flames they licked the walls
    Tenderly they turned to dust all that I adore Writer/s: DANIEL SMITH
