Journey – Castles Burning lyrics

Jimmy wanted her the moment that she stumbled his way
With a cocktail in her hand, she knew how she'd win the game
There were beautiful in all the right places
She keeps her rendezvous with soup opera faces
She started rumors that were driving him crazy
He couldn't stop the things they'd say

And they live for, passion, love and pain
In a rage of jealousy and fame
And they watch their dreams go up on flames

Castles burning... In the dead of night
Castles burning... In the dead of night
Wo... Burnin'...

In the kingdom of pretenders love is not what it seems
Jimmy cried and then he punished her
No one heard her scream
On the outside, it's all crimson and clover
On the inside, they know it's over

And the band of lawyers that steal the show
As they watch their world go up in smoke

Castles burning... In the dead of night
Castles burning... In the dead of night
Wo... Burnin'... Burnin'... Burnin'... Burnin'...

(spoken words)
When we return a story of a 5 alarm fire
Late last night in the prestigious hollywood hills
Where one of the most controversial marriages in the
Entertainment industry went up in smoke, arson is suspected
It is still under investigation...

You know I love you, you know you're my girl,
I'd never hurt you... No

Castles burning... In the dead of night
Castles burning... In the dead of night
Burnin'... Burnin'

All is fair in love and war, but war is hell...
In the heart of the night, in the middle of the big bad city
