  • I woke up to another mess in the living room
    Broken bottles all around my feet
    They came again in the night under crescent moon
    Didn't wake me in my sleep

    'Cause they talk and drink and laugh 'bout things
    And fall in love in my backyard
    I hide and cower in the corner
    Conversation's getting hard
    'Cause nobody seems to ask about me anymore
    And nobody seems to care 'bout anything I think
    And nobody seems to recognize me in the crowd
    In the background screaming, "everybody, look at me"

    And I'm faded away, you know, I used to be on fire
    And I'm faded away, you know, I used to be on fire
    I'm standing in the ashes of who I used to be
    And I'm faded away, you know, I used to be on fire
    You know, I used to be on fire
    You know, I used to be on fire, fire

    I used to be a darling starlet like a centerpiece
    Had the whole world wrapped around my ring
    I flew too closely to the sun that's setting in the east
    And now I'm melting from my wings

    'Cause I'd laugh and drink and talk 'bout things
    And fall in love in my backyard
    Now it's my own anxiety
    That makes the conversation hard
    'Cause nobody seems to ask about me anymore
    And nobody ever cares 'bout anything I think
    And nobody seems to recognize me in the crowd
    In the background screaming, "everybody, look at me"

    And I'm faded away, you know, I used to be on fire
    And I'm faded away, you know, I used to be on fire
    I'm standing in the ashes of who I used to be
    But I'm faded away, you know, I used to be on fire
    You know, I used to be on fire
    You know, I used to be on fire
    Well, I used to be on fire
    You know, I used to be on fire

    You know, I used to be on fire
    You know, I used to be on fire, fire Writer/s: ASHLEY FRANGIPANE, GREGORY KURSTIN
