You said, "I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down"
Yeah, I'm gonna put it six feet underground
You said, "I'm gonna buy this place and see it fall"
Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls

You said, "I'm gonna buy this place and start a fire"
Stand here until I fill all your heart's desires
'Cause I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn
And do back the things it did to you in return

You said, "I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war"
And if you can tell me something worth fighting for
"And I'm gonna buy this place", is what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head, up to the head

Honey, all the movements you're starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face
And I know the mistakes that I've made

See it all disappear without a trace
And they call as they beckon you on
They said start as you mean to go on

You said, "I'm gonna buy this place and see it go"
Stand here beside me baby, watch the orange glow
'Cause some will laugh and some just sit and cry
But you just sit down there and you wonder why?

So I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
And if you can tell me something worth fighting for
"And I'm gonna buy this place", is what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head, to the head

Honey, all the movements you're starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face
And I know the mistakes that I've made

See it all disappear without a trace
And they call as they beckon you on
They say start as you mean to go on

Start as you mean to go on
Start as you mean to go on

So meet me by the bridge
Yeah, meet me on the lane
When am I going to see
That pretty face again

Oh, meet me on the road
Yeah, meet me where I said
Blame it all upon
A rush of blood to the head
