I got a lot to say I just don't know how to say it
I know all the rules I just can't seem to play it
You can tick the boxes
Follow the equation
But the knife won't budge until you learn patience

I got notes to sing I just can't reach the words
They're out on a ledge in the dark with the birds
But I'm trying to find them inside of you
Take my brain and break it in two

[Chorus:]
Melody, you're the only one who saves me
Out of the cold you take me
(Set me on fire)
Save me
(Set me on fire)
Melody, all I want is to remember
What came before this winter?
(Set me on fire)
Save me
Set me on fire

I got a rock between my heart and my mouth
I know how it got there but I can't pull it out
And the bones that once moved my fingers over keys
Are protesting in a fist on my knees
Gotta find a way to unzip my skin
Cause this is a stranger's I'm living in

[Chorus]

Oh... (what came before the winter?)
Set me on fire
Oh...

Melody, you're the only one who saves me
Out of the cold you take me
And set me on fire
You set me on fire
Melody, all I want is to remember
What came before this winter?
(Set me on fire)
Oh save me
Set me on fire
Melody you're the only one who saves me oooh...
Set me on fire
