  • I had a dream about a burning house
    You were stuck inside
    I couldn't get you out
    I lay beside you and pulled you close
    And the two of us went up in smoke

    Love isn't all that it seems
    I did you wrong
    I'll stay here with you
    Until this dream is gone

    I've been sleepwalking
    Been wondering all night
    Trying to take what's lost and broke
    And make it right
    I've been sleepwalking
    Too close to the fire
    But it's the only place that I can hold you tight
    In this burning house

    I see you at a party and you look the same
    I could take you back
    But people don't really change
    Wish that we could go back in time
    I'd be the one you thought you'd find

    Love isn't all that it seems
    I did you wrong
    I'll stay here with you
    Till this dream is gone

    I've been sleepwalking
    Been wondering all night
    Trying to take what's lost and broke
    And make it right
    I've been sleepwalking
    Too close to the fire
    But it's the only place that I can hold you tight
    In this burning house

    Flames are getting bigger now
    In this burning house
    I can hold on to you somehow
    In this burning house
    Oh and I don't wanna wake up
    In this burning house

    And I been sleepwalking
    Been wandering all night
    Trying to take what's lost and broke
    And make it right
    I've been sleep walking
    Too close to the fire
    But it's the only place that I can hold you tight
    In this burning house Writer/s: Samuel Tyler Johnson, Jeffrey Bhasker, Cam Ochs
