I can hear half-remembered lies
Allusions to our history
You can’t hide anymore
Are you dissatisfied
With my second person songs
Wishing for a girl to strike a match
And start a fire

Start a fire
Start a fire
Start a fire in my heart
Have mercy baby
Start a fire
Start a fire
Start a fire
You’re the one
And I used to be the place for you to run.

A sideways glance a fantasy I cling to.
I whisper to you while you sleep.
The mirrored lens the sun against your skin
And all the stupid stories that I spin.
May lightening strike and...

Start a fire
Start a fire
Start a fire in my heart
Will you wait for me to
Start a fire
Start a fire
Start a fire
You’re the one
I will always be the place for you to run.

We crash on heaven’s floor
A chain of generations in decay
As I hold this pose I try to concentrate
One thing at a time
Broken by the outburst of a kiss

Oh, perfection calls so
Start a fire
Yeah and let it go
A hidden world we never know where everything is new
I will wait for you to
Start a fire
And make it grow in ways you will never know
Well baby you’re the one
I will always be the place for you to run
Start a fire
Start a fire
I will always be the place for you to run
