Well I like fire as much as the next soul, my love.
But to set a whole city ablaze seems a step above.
We never intended harm to them did we, my dear?
Love was on our mind yet we inspired so much fear.
All my best mistakes came with big brown eyes.
You saw through all my self righteous prudish lies.
When you said I would be yours I knew I wouldn’t fight
For being the weaker sex I can never win try as I might
Weren’t you supposed to be loving another?
Is he not enough for your passion to smother?
I remember the night we lit the fire
It was the same moment I became a liar
Doing what I said I never would with a women who was not mine
Being a devil in the city of angels all the while feeling just fine
We stepped back hand in hand admiring the growing glowing flames
They stretched higher and higher as if to heaven exposing our shame
All my best mistakes came with big brown eyes
After the city burnt down we severed the ties
But I can still feel you in the dark of midnight
I still smell your skin when I am alone in moonlight
You will haunt me until I am dead
Playful words better left unsaid
