cuts like a knife now my mind can't stop ringing with the words that you threw at me. cuts like a knife that will leave the deepest wound, will it ever be the same, playing silly games, to open up a vein, cover up the stain. promises are dreams that never came to stay, i've had my fill of them. this tidy room tells me all my life is vain, like the shadow that remains a cradle to the blame, powder to the flame, the needle knows your name. life is fire and cold desire, i'm on fire, i'm on fire. I pretend that i understood you well because i needed to. but you became a stranger to you name as you drifted out of reach, the world beneath your feet, stumbled in defeat, crumbled in defeat, time is fire and cold desire, i'm on fire, i'm on fire. sunny days will they ever come again like a long lost friend, gentle rain told me all i had to know, joy and sorrow ebb and flow this is all we know, laughing as we go, crying as we go. love is fire and cold desire, i'm on fire, i'm on fire.
