This song is by Illy and features Vera Blue.

Original video
En garde, my god, how she get at me
Either we'll never get it right or it's meant to be
My ego, her pride, some recipe
We're our biggest fans and our own worst enemies
Ain't shy, let the whole world know
Have 'em tuned into the blow by blow
She move, I move, let her go, I go
Stir it up, stand back, watch the firework show
Ayo, too proud to quit when it's broken
Too in denial to admit when it's over
Drowning at separate ends of an ocean
Both in too deep to know where the coast is
Surrounded by waves in a hurricanes
Gaze, when we together ain't none of y'all safe
So buckle or get out of our way
Up in smoke, down in flames cause man

When we fight fire with fire
When we cross the line, ayo
Maybe happy ever after's ain't for us
Ain't no surprise when
When we play with knives, ayo
Ain't no broken pride and these aren't paper cuts
(Bassline: Vera Blue)
Ain't no broken pride and these aren't paper cuts

One by one on the hunt
Nowhere to hide, nowhere left to run
But I'd rather war with you all of summer
Than a low key peace with another, ay
One by one every cut
Yeah, it gets deep, but who they to judge
'Cause when it's on we roll like the thunder
Then it's RIP to the others ay
Cycle repeat till the lesson get learned, man
You play with fire, bridges get burnt, man
The standoff only making this worse
But don't nobody move and nobody gets hurt, man
We just caught in our ways
Sucker-punches traded, all fun and games
Until the cards, fall where they may
Then it's all 'can't even, whatever, anyway'

When we fight fire with fire
When we cross the line, ayo
Maybe happy ever after's ain't for us
Ain't no surprise when
When we play with knives, ayo
Ain't no broken pride and these aren't paper cuts

I know when you're weakest
You know where my demons hide
Put us on a knife edge
We tear down everything inside, and
I know when you're weakest
You know where my demons hide
Put us on a knife edge
We'll tear down everything inside

When will we learn
We've come too far in this to see
How much it hurts
When will we learn
You and I
We've come too far in this to know
When to let go
Are we our better halves
If we only make it worse?
Are we better off apart
But can't say the words?
When will we learn
You and I
We've come too far in this to see
All we ever do is bleed

When we fight fire with fire
When we cross the line, ayo
Maybe happy ever after's ain't for us
Ain't no surprise when
When we play with knives, ayo
Ain't no broken pride and these aren't paper cuts

I know when you're weakest
You know where my demons hide
Put us on a knife edge
We'll tear down everything inside, yeah
I know when you're weakest
You know where my demons hide
Put us on a knife edge
We'll tear down everything inside

Ain't no broken pride and these aren't paper cuts
