  • You're making a choice to live like this
    And all of the noise - I am silence
    We already know how it ends tonight
    You run in the dark through a firefight
    And I would explode just to save your life
    Yeah, I would explode

    Let me light up the sky
    Light it up for you
    Let me tell you why
    I would die for you
    Let me light up the sky

    I can't find a wall to pin this to
    They're all coming down since I've found you
    I just wanna be where you are tonight
    I run in the dark looking for some light
    And how will we know if we just don't try
    We won't ever know

    Let me light up the sky
    Light it up for you
    Let me tell you why
    I would die for you
    Let me light up the sky
    Light it up for you
    Let me make this mine
    I'll ignite for you

    Let me light up the sky
    Just for you tonight
    Let me help you fly
    'Cause you won't have time
    To cover your eyes
    Or get your disguise
    They won't ask you why
    They'll just watch you die

    And it's still so hard to be who you are
    So you play this part
    And the show goes on
    But you've come this far with a broken heart
    Yeah, you've come this far
    And you're broken

    Let me light up the sky
    Light it up for you
    Let me tell you why
    I would die for you
    Let me light up the sky
    Light it up for you
    Let me make this mine
    I'll ignite for you
    I'll ignite for you

    Let me light up the sky
    Light it up for you
    Let me tell you why
    I would die for you

    And it's still so hard to be who you are
    But you've come this far with a broken heart
    And it's still so hard to be who you are
    But you've come this far and you're broken

    Let me light up the sky
