Somebody Light a Fire

Since you’ve gone it’s gotten dark, my minds a swirling haze.
There ain’t no moon or rising sun to tell my night from days.
I walk around like I’m dead whispering your name.
Pretty soon I’m gonna freeze numb from all the pain.

Somebody build a fire 
Somebody fan a flame
Heat up this cold desire 
Quick-frozen in my brain
Melt me down and love me 
I’m about to go insane
Somebody light a fire 
Somebody fan a flame

The part of me that wants you back keeps chipping at the bone.
You’re like a demon in my head that’s turning me to stone.
And everyday I get colder. There’s granite in my eyes.
I’m afraid it won’t be much longer before you kill me with your lies. 

Somebody build a fire 
Somebody fan a flame
Heat up this cold desire 
Quick-frozen in my brain
Melt me down and love me 
I’m about to go insane
Somebody light a fire 
Somebody fan the flame

It’s crazy, but you’re in my blood, deep frozen in my veins.
Every time I inhale a breath it’s like breathing icy rain.
I’ve got to stop wanting you. You’re poison as cocaine.
I should run like hell the other way. This kind of love’s deranged.

God knows I should abstain…

Somebody build a fire 
Somebody fan a flame
Heat up this cold desire 
Quick-frozen in my brain
Melt me down and love me 
I’m about to go insane
Somebody light a fire 
Somebody fan a flame
