Here we are
Shallow but inspired
Jumping into fires we set
Here we are
We're dumb enough to learn
Risking all we know to forget

So don't make me lead the way
Or make me say
It's real
The way
I feel

Chorus
'cause words burn like kerosene
Flickering
Then gone
Words burn like kerosene
Seldom seen again

Well damn the lies
I'm choking on the truth
Time is passing by
It's no excuse
Stale goodbyes
Oh really what's the use
To try and save what we long to lose

So don't make me lead the way
Or make me say
It's real
The way
I feel

Chorus
'cause words burn like kerosene
Flickering
Then gone
Words burn like kerosene
Seldom seen again

Words burn like kerosene
Flickering
Then gone
Words burn like kerosene
Seldom seen again

Sometimes you need to go astray
So throw caution to the wind
Sometimes it carries you away
Ohh please don't hate me when I say

Words burn like kerosene
Flickering
Then gone
Words burn like kerosene
Seldom seen again

Kerosene
Oh seldom seen
Ohh oh oh
Then gone
