The house is burning

The house is burning with in
The perfect life is crumbling
You set on fire but I add some fuel
Didn’t know, what an explosion it would turn out to be
The trees are burning, the bushes alight
The tears I create won’t dampen this fire of the night

Huddled in a corner
Don’t know where to hide
Could escape, run into the sunset
But you holding me
Behind
I can’t go, No
I can’t move away
It’s like you’ve tagged me to you
Psychologically, because you’re my family


The house is burning with in
The perfect life is crumbling
You set on fire but I add some fuel
Didn’t no, what a explosion it would be
The trees are burning, the bushes alight
The tears I create won’t dampen this fire of the night

Physically I am as free as a bird
But something deep down Stops me,
From spreading my wings
Flying into my life beyond
The fire slows down
The flames above you start to lower down from the sky
The redness around, a smoky fire
I avoided it
Don’t want to choke from that ghastly smoke
And a grey fog hangs over you and me
Hope soon, it will clear and ill be free

The house is burning with in
The perfect life is crumbling
You set on fire but I add some fuel
Didn’t no, what a explosion it would be
The trees are burning, the bushes alight
The tears I create won’t dampen this fire of the night
