​Roman Candle

This song is by The Crookes and appears on the album Lucky Ones (2016).

Please don't live the same year eighty times
Lord knows that if you do you can't ever call that a life
It's true my darling, I love watching TV in your tiny room
But I swear there must be so much more
Stepping out your door

The days'll run away
So let's go up in flames

It's obscene, when I was seventeen I had no wisdom teeth
They say "just be yourself" like that's an easy thing to be.
No you don't need a boyfriend now, oh honey pie, oh girl
I'll show you the world.
Here's another photo staring back at me

The days'll run away
Maybe this time tomorrow
I'll have something to say
These days'll run away
Burning like a Roman Candle
And we'll go up in flames

Fireworks and new skies
Explode anti-clockwise from the past
There's no use in looking back.

But I could tell you a story
I'm dying for glory, don't want fame
Just wanna burn, go up in flames

The days'll run away
Maybe this time tomorrow
I'll have something to say
Yeah the days'll run away
Burning like a Roman Candle
Let's go up in flames
The days'll run away
Burning like a Roman Candle
Let's go up, up, up in flames
These days'll run away
Take my hand, oh come on darling, come on let's be brave
