Lyrics

House On Fire

You say we get on like a house on fire
Burning memories of ex-lovers away
Girl you could become my one desire
But don’t go too fast or the wind blows out the flame
Play it cool, trust in me
What the spark becomes we’ll have to see
Love can’t live in a house on fire
What burns all night collapses in the light of day

You say we need to run like a house on fire
Into a new life where we will be safe
From second thoughts or late night denial
In a citadel hiding behind its gates
Let’s take our time and not burn too fast
A lifetime should be built to last
Love can’t live in a house on fire
What burns all night collapses in the light of day

I used to run and get nowhere
Before that I could see
Love’s always an open book
That needs some mystery
And I don’t want you to ever think
I don’t want you around
But I’ve seen some places that looked hot
Come crumbling to the ground

Some loves end like a house on fire
The chance we take giving Cupid’s wheel a play
So let’s enjoy our time out on the wire
Because what I feel for you is stronger every day
Grip too hard and it starts to crack
Set it free and it might come back
Love can’t live in a house on fire
What burns all night collapses in the light of day
