From the thoughts that I've been thinkin'
I should think of an alibi
Though I'm innocent, I've still got a guilty mind
There's no place that I can turn to
When she turns out the lights
To keep her from seein' you burnin' in my eyes

It's like tryin' to hide a fire in the dark
Carryin' around this torch in my heart
I cannot conceal it, I cannot put it out
It's like tryin' to hide a fire in the dark
Tryin' to fight a flame I never meant to start
It's out of control and nothin' can help me now

At first it was no problem
