Burnin' Down the Spark

  • Standing in the crowds
    Lost out in the street
    Loving the chaos
    With my heart down at my feet

    Taking every step like it's my very last
    Looking round the corners
    Searching through the glass
    For a glimpse of you
    Eyes of shining blue
    All these memories of you come to haunt me
    They come to haunt me

    Taste the stinging rain
    Falling on my tongue
    Hanging on your words
    Cherish every one
    Can't bring you back no matter what I say
    Driving in my car just to drive away
    Hear the tires spin
    Round and round again
    All these memories still come to haunt me
    They come to haunt me

    The city sleepin' cross the river
    I'm up alone burning down the spark
    Well I wonder where you are tonight
    And how far you drifted out there, out there in the dark

    Wind at my window
    Rattling the door
    Pounding on my heart
    Like it's never done before
    Still I wonder if it could be these memories
    No matter how I try they never let me be
    Always find a way
    Calling out your name
    All these memories of you stay and haunt me
    Mmh come to haunt me
    Mmh they still haunt me
    Oh they come and haunt me
