  • Ooh oh oh oh, ooh oh oh oh
    Be careful making wishes in the dark
    Can't be sure when they've hit their mark
    And besides in the meantime I'm just dreaming of tearing you apart
    I'm in the details with the devil
    So now the world can never get me on my level
    I just got to get you out of the cage
    I'm a young lovers rage
    Gonna need a spark to ignite
    My songs know what you did in the dark

    So light em up up up, light em up up up,
    light em up up up, I'm on fire
    So light em up up up, light em up up up,
    light em up up up, I'm on fire

    Ooh oh oh oh (In the dark, in the dark)
    Ooh oh oh oh (In the dark, in the dark)

    All the writers keep writing what they write
    Somewhere another pretty vein just dies
    I've got the scars from tomorrow and I wish you could see
    That you're the antidote to everything except for me
    A constellation of tears on your lashes
    Burn everything you love
    Then burn the ashes
    In the end everything collides
    My childhood spat back the monster that you see
    My songs know what you did in the dark

    So light em up up up, light em up up up,
    light em up up up, I'm on fire
    So light em up up up, light em up up up,
    light em up up up, I'm on fire

    Ooh oh oh oh (In the dark, in the dark)
    Ooh oh oh oh (In the dark, in the dark)

    My songs know what you did in the dark
    My songs know what you did in the dark

    So light em up up up, light em up up up,
    light em up up up, I'm on fire
    So light em up up up, light em up up up,
    light em up up up, I'm on fire

    Ooh oh oh oh (In the dark, in the dark)
    Ooh oh oh oh (In the dark, in the dark)
