Set Me On Fire

Album: Between The Stars (2014)
  • Oh, what a cold, dark world it is to walk through
    Alone with a fear-filled head
    Thinking of losing you is a haunted song
    And a dread much worse than the fear of death

    Now I feel the fear rising up
    Climbing up, taking over my body
    And I feel my pulse starting up
    Waking me again

    Open my eyes, I'm reaching for you
    Set me on fire, set me on fire
    I'm burning inside, I'm waiting for you
    Set me on fire, set me on fire

    Your hand in mine, oh, I feel the fire
    Two hearts that beat, oh, to feed the fire

    You are a spark that shines a light
    Where we could belong together, factionless
    Let's keep it burning bright 'til we're floating away,
    'Til we're ashes dancing inside the flames

    Now I feel the fear rising up
    Climbing up, taking over my body
    And I feel my pulse starting up
    Waking me again

    Open my eyes, I'm reaching for you
    Set me on fire, set me on fire
    I'm burning inside, I'm waiting for you
    Set me on fire, set me on fire

    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh
    Oh, oh, oh

    Your hand in mine, oh, I feel the fire
    Two hearts that beat, oh, to feed the fire

    Open my eyes, I'm reaching for you
    Set me on fire, set me on fire
    I'm burning inside, I'm waiting for you
    Set me on fire, set me on fire

    Oh, oh, oh
    Set me on fire, set me on fire
    Oh, oh, oh
    Set me on fire, set me on fire

    Oh, oh, oh Writer/s: JAMES CULPEPPER, JARED HARTMANN, JOHNNY ANDREWS, KRISTEN MAY, PAT SEALS, SAMEER BHATTACHARYA
