There’s a burning in my heart
Feel the fire in my vein
Obsession’s my desire
Compulsion my game

Doesn’t mean I never loved you
Doesn’t nobody care
Well love is my addiction
And it’s got me running scared

I see you’re crying tears of pain
I bleed when you come near me
Calling out your name
Swallowed up by my fear
Of what’s ending here, baby

If I, never tried
Leave the world and never say good-bye
I wouldn’t hurt you anymore

If I, never lied
You’d be the one that’s right here by my side
And take all my pain away

I see reflections of a candle
And the light of a flame
I point in all directions
But there’s no one left to blame

Promises are slowly fading
Through the walls and they’re closing in
All my explanations
And-a here I go again

See I’m lost and I’m searching
To find my way back to you
A prisoner of pain
And I thought you’d be there
But there’s no one left to be there, yeah

If I, never tried
Leave the world and never say good-bye
I wouldn’t hurt you anymore

If I, never lied
You’d be the one that’s right here by my side
And take all my pain away

SOLO

I see you’re crying tears of pain
I bleed when you come near me
Calling out your name
Swallowed up by my fear
Of what’s ending here, baby

If I, never tried
Leave the world and never say good-bye
I wouldn’t hurt you anymore

Now I know for sure
If I, never lied
You’d be the one that’s right here by my side
And take all my pain away

If I, never tried
Leave the world and never say good-bye
I wouldn’t hurt you anymore

Aw no no no

If I, never died
You’d be the one that’s right here by my side
And take all my pain away

do-do DO DO, do-do DO DO
do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do DO DO DO
