Song On Fire

Album: Feed The Machine (2017)
  • The first words that come out
    And I can see this song will be about you
    I can't believe that I can breathe without you
    But all I need to do is carry on
    The next line I write down
    And there's a tear that falls between the pages
    I know that pain's supposed to heal in stages
    But it depends which one I'm standing on

    I write lines down, then rip them up
    Describing love can't be this tough

    I could set this song on fire, send it up in smoke
    I could throw it in the river and watch it sink in slowly
    Tie the pages to a plane and send it to the moon
    Play it for the world, but it won't mean much
    Unless I sing this song to you

    I'm dying to show you
    This could end happily ever after
    There doesn't ever have to be disaster
    And all you have to do is sing along

    I write lines down, then rip them up
    Impossible describing love

    I could set this song on fire, send it up in smoke
    I could throw it in the river and watch it sink in slowly
    Tie the pages to a plane and send it to the moon
    Play it for the world, but it won't mean much
    Unless I sing this song to you

    I could set this song on fire
    Sing this song to you
    I could set this song on fire

    Light this old guitar on fire, I'd still hear the notes
    Drown the melody in water, I'd still hear its ghost
    Sing it with somebody else, but we'd be out of tune
    Play it for the world, but it won't mean much

    I could set this song on fire, send it up in smoke
    I could throw it in the river and watch it sink in slowly
    Tie the pages to a plane and send it to the moon
    Play it for the world, but it won't mean much
    Unless I sing this song to you

    I could set this song on fire
    Unless I sing this song to you
    I could set this, I could set this
    I want to sing this song to you
    I could set this song on fire
    Sing this song to you
    I could set this, I could set this Writer/s: CHAD KROEGER, HAYLEY WARNER, RYAN A SPRAKER, RYAN ANTHONY PEAKE, STEPH JONES
