I saw the words in your eyes
and transcribed them into my heart
I never lost control of the situation
except when I passed the torch to you
and you closed your eyes
refused to speak,
left the world burning beneath you
and never reached for my hand.

I never lost control, not me
you never saw me weaken, never saw me shake
You're face to face with this broken girl
can see into her unwavering eyes
and still you can't see that I'm shattered
without you, I can't become
the perfection that you want.

You've burnt my hands completely
but i can still speak into your eyes
I lit the match to spark the fire
burning in the crystal blue
and you try to hide it
but you cannot stop it.

I lit your fire
I burnt your bridges
I left the gas running
so you'd never escape
the memory of me.

And when the fire burns you, scars you,
you'll remember me and know

You could never stop loving me.
