On a drive, I'm taking backroads
High against where the rivers are flowing
I didn't think that our love had grown
You had me dead to rights
Hey, I'm trying to get some rest
To keep on moving

How you been, you looking back?
You tried to change your burning boat
Until you realized what you were up against
I spent all those nights just trying to take you home
'Til you released me

Cross the bridge to redefine your pain
When the answer's in your heart
Wide awake, I rearrange the way I listen in the dark
Dreaming of starting up again

So if you look, you'll find yourself
You're not the demon in the dark
That you and I, yeah we'd been through that
Oh, can you rectify it all the times I took you away from choosing?
So as you find yourself flying high up there
When you release me from your heart again (woo!)
I'm just a burning man trying to keep this ship
From turning over again

Cross the rich derivative of pain
Crush the burning in your heart
Wide awake to redefine the way you listen in the dark
Dreaming, starting
Like a stranded kid in a doorway just burning

Yeah, I turn the light, babe
