  • This was never what I thought it was
    This is not who we are
    This is where someone was meant to say
    Enough is enough
    This is nothing like they said it would be
    This is all gone too far
    When everything is running out
    This is love

    She's the fire and the fallout
    She reminds you of the things we never talk about
    She's the lover with the best-laid plan
    To break the man
    She's a sinner in a side show
    She feels at home when there's nowhere left to go
    She's the devil you understand
    Break the man

    No more tearing the bandages off
    No more living a lie
    No more chewing the scenery
    No more rain, no more rain
    No more wondering what happens now
    No more holding your feet to the fire
    When everything is running down
    No more pain

    She's the fire and the fallout
    She reminds you of the things we never talk about
    She's the lover with the best-laid plan
    To break the man
    She's the trouble in the headline
    She's the mother who turns back father time
    She's the devil you understand
    Break the man

    No more wondering what happens now
    No more holding your feet to the fire
    When everything is running down
    This is love

    She's the fire and the fallout
    She reminds you of the things we never talk about
    She's the lover with the best-laid plan
    To break the man
    She's the trouble in the headline
    She's the mother who turns back father time
    She's the devil you understand
