  • I can see you staring at the windows at night
    But don't you fret my dear, I know just where I've been hiding out

    Let's sit behind this fortress
    I built it just to keep the whole world out
    It wasn't meant for you
    Look who's left a prisoner (prisoner, prisoner, prisoner)

    I know what you do when our love is on fire
    I've been watching you trying to b-b-b-b-b-burn it down
    I know what you do when our world is on fire, fire
    B-b-b-b-b-burn it down
    I know what you do when our love is on fire
    I've been watching you trying to b-b-b-b-b-burn it down
    I know what you do when our world is on fire, fire
    B-b-b-b-b-burn it down

    I can see you
    Battling your demons at night
    You're so restless
    Wish I was a reader of mind

    Let's sit behind this fortress
    I built it just to keep the whole world out
    It wasn't meant for you
    Look who's left a prisoner (prisoner, prisoner, prisoner)

    I know what you do when our love is on fire
    I've been watching you trying to b-b-b-b-b-burn it down
    I know what you do when our world is on fire, fire
    B-b-b-b-b-burn it down

    Took my heart away left me hollow
    And we said goodbye for tomorrow
    Took my heart away left me sorrow
    Then we say goodbye for tomorrow

    I know what you do when our love is on fire
    I've been watching you trying to b-b-b-b-b-burn it down
    I know what you do when our world is on fire, fire
