​Burnt Down House

This song is by Kid Harpoon and appears on the album Once (2009).

I always knew you would end up in trouble
I was warned that she leads a double life
And on my knees, I watched it crumble
Our house burnt down tonight

There's ghosts in the ashes, where we used to live
A shimmering glory that's lost in the world
For me to carry until I can forgive her
Our house burnt down tonight
Our house burnt down tonight

And memories fall from the sky
We watched the world ignite
Right under our feet
You brought a fire into these walls

That kind of heat I've never felt before
I started running but I should have crawled
Our house burnt down tonight

Why so cold, my black hearted mistress?
When all that you own has never lived with us
It's locked in your personal prison
Our house burnt down tonight
Our house burnt down tonight

And memories fall from the sky
We watched the world ignite
Right under our feet
Our house burnt down tonight
And the fireworks wave goodbye

The notes of the melody
Play out our song black and white
Our house burnt down tonight
And I see you stuck inside

Wasting no tears and that's why my dear
You never let go of your pride
Our house burnt down tonight
And as the fire slowly dies

It's a weight off my shoulders
In a moment I'll be alright
It's a weight off my shoulders
In a moment I'll be alright
