Flames
You sit alone, the room is spinning
You're waiting for it all to make some sense
It wasn't her, it wasn't you this time
It was all you both had done come to recompense 

You watch the smoke, as it hurls forward
Expending all the evil from your lungs
And now you Know, it's just that easy
To turn a stream into a river and a river to a flood
(Chorus)
You can't hold out any longer
Waiting for the truth to take the blame
Were you the lighter or the fuel this time
Or does the reason for the fire lie strictly in the flames

Just one thought, you let it grow there
Infecting the only love you ever knew
You packed a bag, and left the letter
Convinced yourself a memory is enough to get you through

It worked before, it was that easy
Going felt as good as coming back
But this time something just feels broken
You've counted all the pieces but the colors fade to black


(Chorus)
You can't hold out any longer
Waiting for the truth to take the blame
Were you the lighter or the fuel this time
Or does the reason for the fire lie strictly in the flames





So now you walk, along that same road
Amazed at how it all seems out of place
Nothing's changed, but you feel different
Like the evening sun's the reason for the shadows on your face

There is the slightest hesitation in your footfalls
You can hear it in the corner of your mind
You wrote the ending long before you read the story
You're only satisfied when you search and you can't find

(Chorus)
You can't hold out any longer
Waiting for the truth to take the blame
Were you the lighter or the fuel this time
Or does the reason for the fire lie strictly in the flames
