Original video
You can't recall me on my own
And you are amused
But this knot is not a noose
I love her
I'd do it all again
Don't pity me

I know what I'm doing
I don't even feel the pain
Love ignites
And I have been so long
At the mercy of the flame

She's a fever in my bones
I'll never get well
You can laugh and you can tell I'm hopeless
I'll take that chance
Don't pity me

I know what I'm doing
I don't even feel the pain
Love ignites
And I have been so long
At the mercy of the flame

At the mercy of a fever
I'm wax in the sun
Oh-she's more than a flame
And I'll gladly be burned
I'll gladly be burned

Have my senses taken leave
I doubt if you know
You just see me growing old
But I feel it
I feel the same as always
Don't pity me

I know what I'm doing
I don't even feel the pain
Love ignites
And I have been so long
At the mercy of the flame
