Step one, Find something to burn,
Step two, Find a reason you,
Can't keep your secrets deep inside,
Step 3, Find the light, and don't hold it in,
'Cause the night comes quick,

Tearing at your heart with the taste of her kiss,
You've got to fight the feeling inside,
You've got to pull yourself away.

She keeps the matches under the mattress,
She keeps a smoking gun by her side,
She keeps the cold and the fever it catches
You should know better by now,
She'll burn you down.

She's the spark, on the carpet that starts to ignite,
When a strong wind blows, in the middle of the night,
Like a sound, so loud, it's all you think about,
It's all you think about,
She's all you think about.

Don't hold it in just let go,
You can't win,
You lose control,
And you've got to make the daring escape,
You've got to pull yourself away.

She keeps the matches under the mattress,
She keeps a smoking gun by her side,
She keeps the cold and the fever it catches
You should know better by now,
She'll burn you down.

Don't you know your never going to make it out,
You know your never gonna' stand your ground,
You know you feel it deep inside,
You know you need this to survive
You know the only way to make it out,
You know you see it in her eyes,
How to start a fire.

(How to start a fire)

You should know better by now,
She's going to burn you to the ground,
You should know better by now,
She'll burn you down.

She keeps the matches under the mattress,
She keeps a smoking gun by her side,
She keeps the cold and the fever it catches
You should know better by now,
She'll burn you down.

She'll burn you down,
You should know better by now,
She'll burn you down.
