I stole the keys to the skies,
We'll leave this place for the final time,
No crying words, no goodbyes,
Yes tonight we're burning all the tough times.

Drown all the fears that we had,
These are the things that we'll never understand.
This time fight fire with fire,
Cause baby tonight, the world belongs to you and I.

This Boys in love,
This boys in love
Under city, under city lights.

Don't tell the world what we've known,
We've come so far, but there's still a way to go.
It's dark, there's no need for lights,
When the fire in his eyes is so bright.

This boys in love, love.
This boys in love, under city lights.

Tonight, turn out the lights.
Don't wait, too late to die.
Look out, hold on, hold tight.
Tonight all night I'm getting ready so...

Love (x4)
This boys in love, [this town, this street, your friends, you'll never see this place again, ]
Love [you'll think about it now and then. you'll never see our face again.]
This boys in love, [this town, this street, your friends, you'll never see this place again, ]
Love [you'll think about it now and then. you'll never see our faces again.]

    "skies" has connotations of freedom, which leads me to interpret "I stole the keys to the skies" as 'unlocking' the secrets of freedom, I. E. Purging yourself of negative feelings, removing youself from a bad relationship, etc. This seems to set the mood for the rest of the song. The lyrics "we'll leave this place for the final time, no crying words or goodbyes.." connect with the idea of a newfound freedom and leaving a negative stage of your life and searching for a new beginning.
    "this time fight fire with fire" suggests that this negativity in life (perhaps a relationship, depression, something else) has existed for a long time, and that the best way to rid yourself of these feelings is to resist or put up a fight.
    "cause baby tonight the world belongs to you and I" suggests two people in love running off together, perhaps people don't accept their relationship (a previous guy hypothesised that it could be 2 boys in love with each other, and how they're running away because they don't have the acceptance that they're looking for - I definately see that as a possibilty). "its dark" connotes evil and may signify the hardships that are involved with separating yourself from negitivity.
    And that's what I think it's mostly about(:
