Tonight the sunset means so much
The one thing that you know you never touch
Like the feeling, the real thing
I reach out for the sweet dream
But somehow the darkness wakes me up
Well I felt this emptiness before
But all the times that I've been broken
I still run right back for more

You'd think that I'd learn my lesson by now
You'd think that I'd somehow figure out
That if you strike that match
You've found a field of flames
You'd think that I'd learn the cost of love
And paid that price long enough
But still I drive myself right through the pain
Well it turns out
I haven't learned a thing

Oh yeah

Sometimes I think I'm better off
To turn out the lights and close up shop
Didn't give up the longing, believing
And belonging
Just hold down my head and take the lost

You'd think that I'd learn my lesson by now
You'd think that I'd somehow figure out
That if you strike that match
You've found a field of flames
You'd think that I'd learn the cost of love
And paid that price long enough
But still I drive myself right through the pain
Well it turns out
I haven't learned a thing

You'd think that I'd learn my lesson by now
You'd think that I'd somehow figure out
That if you strike that match
You've found a field of flames
You'd think that I'd learn the cost of love
And paid that price long enough
But still I drive myself right through the pain
Yeah, well it turns out
I haven't learned a thing

I haven't learned a thing
I haven't learned, haven't learned
I haven't learned a thing

    I think its "You're bound to feel the flame" not "You've found a field of flames". I think it makes more sense, doesn't it?
