You Light My Fire

Album: Grand Romantic (2015)
  • I wanna throw the fight and kiss away your pain tonight
    But that would only make this harder
    She can't stand to sleep alone
    Oh no and I hate losing so
    I wait till we get tired

    Well the could outside knows we can't be alone
    So I throw my arms right beside hers
    Then I close my eyes lean in for something more
    And you light my fire

    As your heartbeat keeps me warm
    We take Fourth Street cross corners to the bar
    Where I slurred convinced we could make it brighter

    I know we're not as young as we'd like to be
    But I like to think you're bound to get the best of me
    C'mon babe your love gets me high

    I know one day I'll fall for an oath
    I just spend all my life trying to find her
    But I burned down every door I'd ever shut
    When you light my fire

    I wanna throw the fight and kiss away your pain tonight
    But that would only make this better

    I know one day I'll fall for an oath
    I just spend all of my life on the run looking over my shoulder
    Now I burn down every door I ever shut
    When you light my fire Writer/s: JEFF BHASKER, NATE RUESS, EMILE HAYNIE
