[Verse 1]
Be careful making wishes in the dark
Can’t be sure when they’ve hit their mark
And besides, in the mean, meantime
I’m just dreaming of tearing you apart
I’m in the details with the devil
No, the world can never get me on my level
I just got to get you out the cage
I’m a young lover’s rage
Gonna need a spark to ignite

[Bridge]
My songs know what you did in the dark

[Hook]
So light ‘em up, up, up
Light ‘em up, up, up
Light ‘em up, up, up
I’m on fire
So light ‘em up, up, up
Light ‘em up, up, up
Light ‘em up, up, up
I’m on fire

[Verse 2]
All the writers keep writing what they write
Somewhere another pretty vein just dies
I’ve got the scars from tomorrow and I wish you could see
That you’re the antidote to everything except for me
A constellation of tears on your lashes
Burn everything you love, then burn the ashes
In the end everything collides
My childhood spat back out the monster that you see

[Bridge]

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
Light it up…
I’m so hot I’m gettin’ head in a fire truck
She like when I buy her stuff
No strings attached, she want me to tie her up
She asked how much money I got, I told her not enough
“Do Not Disturb” sign on my hotel
So many girls on my coattails
I told ‘em it’s a new day, a new wave, get it
Told her “turn over, I got a new way to hit it”
So I gotta get it – I ain’t lyin’ to you, stand close to me
I put fire to you, self medication
I take one to the head, and I ain’t chasin’ nothin’

[Hook]
