Church On Fire

This song is by Civil Twilight and appears on the album Holy Weather (2012).

Two by two, they came into that sunlit room
The only church in this town
The only town that I ever knew
I sat in the back row, next to the open door
So I could feel the breeze on my skin
And know that there's something more than just this

I saw her walking down Bellmont Avenue
And from the back window of my father's car
You waved at me and I waved at you
We kissed after years of waiting
Years of holding hands
And I felt something shift inside my soul
That no man could understand

I burn like a church on fire
In the light of the afternoon
I hope you can feel my desire
'Cause these flames rise for you

One by one, I went through all the things I've done
To get to this place I stand
Where I look down and I don't recognize my own hands
I wrote you a letter for every day that I was away
But how many words does one man need to say what he needs to say

I burn like a church on fire
In the light of the afternoon
I hope you can feel my desire
'Cause these flames rise for you

Yeah, that was me
I poured the gasoline
I lit the match for everyone to see
The fireworks in my heart
Yeah, that was me
I burned it to the ground
Yeah, that was me
I burned it all down
I burned this to the ground
Everything that has let us down
Everything that has let us down

One by one, I went through all the things I've done
