Can you hear that sound
It's all around you and me
There's a voice
It searched and found you
What can it be?
It's like thunder and lightning
Speaking your name
And this man of fire
Could be burnt in the flame
You know what you do
What you do-

You're breaking down paradise
And I'm the one who pays the price
Any way I play or lose
Any way that I throw the dice
You're breaking down paradise
You're breaking down paradise

You walk away
And turned the day
Into night
The cold and lonely night
Out of the silence
There's a hurricane
And all around me
It's burning again
It's burning again and again

It's like thunder and lightning
Speaking your name
And this man of fire
Could be burnt in the flame
You know what you do
What you do-
