Ooh baby don't you know I suffer?
Ooh baby can't you hear me moan?
You caught me under false pretenses
How long before you let me go?

Ooh you set my soul alight
Ooh you set my soul alight

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And superstars sucked into the super-massive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And superstars sucked into the super-massive

I thought I was a fool for no one
Ooh baby I'm a fool for you
You're the queen of the superficial
But how long before you tell the truth

Ooh you set my soul alight
Ooh you set my soul alight

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super-massive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super-massive

Like a super-massive black hole
Super-massive black hole
Super-massive black hole
Super-massive black hole

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super-massive

Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super-massive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super-massive

(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the super-massive

Like a super-massive black hole
A super-massive black hole
A super-massive black hole
Super-massive black hole

    I thought this place was for writing about song meaning, Not ranting about twilight.
    I think it's about being hooked on someone and they 'set your soul alight'. 'Glaciers melting in the dead of night' is a cold heart melting and the 'superstars sucked into the supermassive' is someone (I'm guessing Matt) falling for somebody who isn't good for them, but you can't help it cause like a black hole they pull everything towards them even if they end up destroying it.
