  • I could've sworn I saw fireworks
    From your house last night
    As the lights flickered and they failed
    I had it all figured out

    Why do I do this to myself every time?
    I know the way it ends before it's even begun
    I am the only one at the finish line

    I took a trip out to the frozen lake
    And you felt so far away
    But I could feel it washing over me
    There's no escaping the harsh light of day

    Why do I do this to myself every time?
    I know the way it ends before it's even begun
    I am the only one at the finish line

    Ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

    Stood out on that beach in Chicago
    Woke up next to you on Silver Lake Avenue
    Wherever I went I always knew, always knew
    'Til I didn't know

    Why do I do this to myself every time?
    I know the way it ends before it's even begun
    I am the only one at the finish line

    Ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh
    Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

    I could've sworn I saw fireworks
    From your house last night Writer/s: Johanna Söderberg, Klara Söderberg
