Fire With Fire

Album: Night Work (2010)
Charted: 11
  • You can see that you're being surrounded
    From every direction
    And love was just something you found
    To add to your collection

    It used to seem we were number one
    But now it sounds so far away
    I had a dream we were running from
    Some blazing arrows yesterday

    You said, fight fire with fire
    Fire with fire
    Fire with fire
    Through desire, desire -sire, desire
    Through your desire

    Now the city blacks out the sun
    That you know is rising
    You can show me the work that you've done
    Your fears have been disguising
    Is it just me or is everyone
    Hiding out between the lines
    What will we be when we come undone
    Just a simple meeting of the minds?

    And we'll fight fire with fire
    Fire with fire
    Fire with fire
    Through desire, desire -sire, desire
    Through your desire
    We'll fight fire with fire
    Fire with fire
    Fire with fire
    Through desire, desire -sire, desire
    Through your desire

    Underneath your skies
    There's a million lights
    Burning brightly just like fireflies

    It's cold and heaven surrounds you from every direction
    Cause there's someone behind every hand
    That you've made a connection
    And now we're free to be number one
    The morning isn't far away
    I had a dream we were holding on
    And tomorrow has become today, become today

    And we'll fight fire with fire
    Fire with fire
    Fire with fire
    Through desire, desire -sire, desire
    Through your desire
    We'll fight fire with fire
    Fire with fire
    Fire with fire
    Through desire, desire -sire, desire
    Through your desire Writer/s: SCOTT HOFFMAN, STUART PRICE, JASON SELLARDS
