Better get the matches, better get some gasoline
I'm tearin up the pictures in our book of memories
And gather em up into a pile on the floor
We don't need them anymore

The floor in this house has been soaked through with tears
But that won't matter when the fire starts spreadin hell
It won't be long until it all goes up in smoke
Till the sparks grab a hold

Let it all burn, bring it on down, watch it all go up in flames
Let it give out, let it cave in, let it bring down everything
Let it rise up to this love, there's nothing more than ashes on the ground

Ohhhhhhh burn it down

I'm tossin in the laughter and the smiles we knew before
I'm tossin in the secrets that you carry through our door
And all those nights that you looked me in the eye
And you told me that you love me in our bed of lies

Let it all burn, bring it on down, watch it all go up in flames
Let it give out, let it cave in, let it bring down everything
Let it rise up to this love, there's nothing more than ashes on the ground

Ohhhhhhh burn it down

You think you know what love can be, til you find you don't know anything
You just pour out your heart til there's nothing left to say
Then you strike that match and you walk away

Let it rise up to this love it's nothing more than ashes on the ground

Let it all burn, bring it on down, watch it all go up in flames
Let it give out, let it cave in, let it bring down everything
Let it rise up into this love, there's nothing more than ashes on the ground

Ohhhhhhh burn it down, ohhhhhh burn it down
Mmmmm burn it down, mmmmm burn it down
