“LIKE A FLAME” – lyrics from “Owlbum” by The Goodnight

The Goodnight – “Like a Flame”

[Verse 1]
A story told by a lonely girl
there is danger in the way that she stares
She begins to pull me in
I can’t ever let her know that I care
Her family, she left back East
but her mother’s eyes remain in the mirror
She says she needs a man like me
I can’t ever let her know I’ll be there.

[Chorus]
She said the heart is like a flame
You could burn me to the ground if you walk away
She said the heart is like a flame, yeah
Don’t burn me down and walk away

[Verse 2]
She sits tight in open sight
Drawing men in with the scent of perfume
She’s well aware she’s catching stares
from every pair of hungry eyes in the room

[Chorus]
She said the heart is like a flame
You could burn me to the ground if you walk away
She said the heart is like a flame, yeah
Don’t burn me down and walk away
