I never seen you clear before
I never heard you cry
My blinded heart is washed ashore
My innocence gone dry
And I wish I had more patience
There are things I can't reverse
I don't know why you were so threatened by the entire universe

You were on fire
Tainted in this sun
You ran against the raging wind
Decadent and drunken with desire
Fooling the love of everyone
Your reverence in flames
Your eyes were golden and awake
You were on fire

And no one's ever saved you
You only saw him bleed
And his sorrow misbehaved you
To avenge and not to plead
But out here there is no other
Whose seen you broken down
Barren, blameless for your lover
Bold and fearless for the crowd

You were on fire
Tainted in this sun
You ran against the raging wind
Decadent and drunken with desire
Fooling the love of everyone
Your reverence in flames
Your eyes were golden and awake
You were on fire

You were on fire
Fooling the love of everyone
Your reverence in flames
Your eyes were golden and awake
You were on fire

I never seen you clear before
I never heard you cry
My blinded heart is washed ashore
My innocence gone dry
And I wish I had more patience
There are things I can't reverse
I don't know why you were so threatened by the entire universe
