One Caught Fire

quiet lights and oak trees
quiet streets that I don’t need
but you wish them on me
and tea lights burn bright
in paper bags that line through the night
you wish them on me
one caught on fire
and the others looked like liars
and all I could see
was what I didn’t want to be
oh won’t you please
turn the lights out as you leave

stay up watching movies
I never knew you knew me
take it out on me
like shadows against covers
single beds for single lovers
take it out on me
and I saw it on the screen
you could never know me
and all I could see
was what I didn’t want to be
oh won’t you please
turn the lights out as you leave

and the stars shine so bright
but they won’t provide the light
yeah the stars shine so bright
but they won’t provide the light you and I need
turn the lights out as you leave
