I watched the flames slow and strange
Make the walls fill my eyes
I heard your voice through the noise
I was cold and it was warm inside

And I should have kept my head
Should have kept my arms inside
I believe it now
I should have kept my head
I should have kept my heart, my heart

Shooting stars, falling leaves
The more things change, the more I sleep
I took her heart, I licked her wounds
And when morning came, it felt like truth

And I should have kept my hands
I should have kept my arms inside
I believe you now
I should have kept my head
I should have kept my heart, my heart

I'm on my knees
And I shoulda kept my hands
I should have kept my arms inside
Yeah I believe you now
I should have kept my head
I should have kept my heart, my heart
