burn this city

staying up all night and sleep all day
we were smart kids with too much to say
and so, so sure
that they were missing out
(they’re the ones who were missing out)

we were elemental
talked down to bare essentials
who knew we’d get so far?

’cause our days were numbered
by nights on too many rooftops
they said we’d burn so bright
we’d burn this city and go

play it again
(our games of love and lust)
and, there’s no such thing
(no, there’s never too much)
and we were so, so sure
no, we never had a doubt
we’re counting down the days to getting out, and

we were elemental
talked down to bare essentials
who knew we’d get so far?
(who knew we’d get so far?)

’cause our days were numbered
by nights on too many rooftops
they said we’re wasting our lives
but, oh, at least we know that if we die
we lived with passion
they said we’d burn so bright
we’d burn this city and go

pack our bags and get away
they’re catching on to us (4x)

’cause our days were numbered
by nights on too many rooftops
they said we’re wasting our lives
but, oh, at least we know that if we die
we lived with passion
they said we’d burn so bright
we’d burn this city and go

our days were numbered
by nights on too many rooftops
they said we’re wasting our lives
but, oh, at least we know that if we die
we lived with passion
they said we’d burn so bright

our days were numbered
by nights on too many rooftops,
they said we’re wasting our lives
but, oh, at least we know that if we die
we lived with passion
they said we’d burn so bright
