  • I can hear you cry
    From behind the door of your troubled mind
    You locked yourself inside
    A lonely prison of your own design

    Do you feel the burn?
    Does it ease the pain when you close your eyes?
    Do you give in to your desire
    Or live inside your tower of endless nights

    I would burn it down for love
    Watch the smoke roll out of my broken heart
    Burn it down for love
    There's no force on earth can keep us apart

    Take my hand I'll lead the way
    Through the darkest parts of these castle halls
    No more masquerade
    We'll fight ghosts and demons
    And we'll breach these walls

    I know you're still afraid
    I'll guide you through these crumbling spires
    Trust in me to light our way
    With these glowing flames that only you inspire

    I would burn it down for love
    Watch the smoke roll out of my broken heart
    Burn it down for love
    There's no force on earth can keep us apart

    Pure of heart and innocent
    I can hear your voice from afar
    I've had my share of loneliness
    Can you hear me now, where you are

    I would burn it down for love
    Watch the smoke roll out of my broken heart
    Burn it down for love
    There's no force on earth can keep us apart
    I would burn it down for love Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
