I try to hold you closer through the night,
I know I can’t think straight when you’re out of sight.
But I think I better let go of you,
So I don’t know what I’m going to do,
But this reckless behavior, it’s bringing me tears.
I can’t control these fears,
Keeps me up through the night,
I’m burning all the lights.
I’m burning at both ends, sending chills through my spine.
You’re playing with my mind, just wishing you were mine.
Thinking back to those days,
Just sway as our song plays.
And as the fire dies,
I feel the warmth in your eyes.
