​Roses 102 - Burning House

This song is by Christon Gray and appears on the album School of Roses (2014).

I shoulda known better than to come back here
But come to think of it, nobody's even home
See, the writing on the wall is your name
No, I really shoulda known better than to walk back up these steps
Set foot in this door again
Floors still creeks beneath me
These dark memories, they greet me
And I don't wanna wake the demons
Not today

And the heat is rising
Everything inside is screaming turn around now
Just run and hide
But, I've been doing that for my whole life, yes
Now or never
I said it's now or never

But, this is the place where my hope got buried alive
And I hear it calling
But I don't know if I have the aware of thought
To come back down those really cold corridors from the basement floor
I feel flames

I can see it now
In this room, in my heart, where I swore I'd never go
It's beating now
In the hands of my greatest mistake of my darkest secret
Saying goodbye to you is like tearing my heart in two

But, I gotta close the door
Goodbye, goodbye
I gotta close the door
Goodbye, I'm moving on
I gotta close the door
Goodbye, goodbye
I gotta close the door
I gotta close the door
Sorry that I have to leave you here
I gotta close the door
I'm no good when I'm around
Oh, I gotta close the door
Oh, I gotta close the door
I gotta close the door
Close the door

Close the door
Close the door
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, gotta close the door
When the fantasy is gone
When the fantasy is gone
Saying goodbye
Gotta close the door
Oh, gotta close the door
Close the door
Never coming back again
Close the door
Never coming back again
Close the door
Oh, I'm looking in my darling's eyes
I gotta close the door
Oh, even second in
Even second guess is having issues
Goodbye, close the door
Lord, help me close the door
Close the door
