Gunpowder

 

Verse One
We were like sunflowers
On a cold, winter’s day
Beautiful but impossible
To sustain

Chorus Part One
I’ve forever found the meaning of bittersweet pain
Every time I watched us blossom
I knew we’d fade away

Verse Two
You live like gunpowder
Barrels in the night
Harmless but so dangerous
Set alight

Chorus Part One
I’ve forever found the meaning of bittersweet pain
Every time I watched us blossom
I knew we’d fade away

Chorus Part Two
I’ve forever found the meaning of bittersweet pain
We’ve finally reached the bottom
Beaten by the flames

Climax
Last time was the last time
I’ll ever beg to stay
We were something beautiful 
We’ll never be again
We fell through life, so fragile
We’ll never breathe again

Chorus Part One
I’ve forever found the meaning of bittersweet pain
Every time I watched us blossom
I knew we’d fade away

Chorus Part Two
I’ve forever found the meaning of bittersweet pain
We’ve finally reached the bottom
Beaten by the flames

Ending
You live like gunpowder
Barrels in the night
Harmless but so dangerous
When you find a light

We’ve finally reached the bottom
Beaten by the flames
