Tyketto – Burnin' Down Inside lyrics

Play the game of indecision, come what may, she knows it isn't just
His voice on the line, one final time she hears thunder
Precious lies when she played her part
Still she tries, because hope dies hard
With broken wings, she can feel the sting like a backhand over the telephone
In her eyes, shimmers twilight, drivin' hard, it gives up the fight
And she fights it back, knowing that the dam could break wide open
Burning down inside, nobody wants to be lonely
Burning down inside, the harder they come, the harder she falls
To her face, I show my arm, I walk away, before I do more harm
And with the damage done, she won't know where to run or who to run to
Turnin' like a spinning wheel, dancin' on her head
Tries so hard to walk away, she falls in love instead
My head says, we should always go our own ways, never get too close
When she can hear my heart, if she comes apart, I'll be waiting
Chorus repeats 2x
Burning down inside - the harder she falls - burning down inside
Burning down inside, the harder they come, the harder she falls
Burning down inside, burning down inside
Burning down inside, the harder they come, the harder she falls
(repeats out)
