Lyrics

Gotta run gotta run gotta run gotta hide
Can’t go back can’t go back can’t go back feeling this way inside
Every word every word every word is cutting like a knife
So I’m packing up my bags for a new life

We tried our best we tried to keep the love alive
We held our breath till there was nothing we could hide
We built a life we built a home
We started out right
But the higher that our walls became we died
Our hopes and dreams and fantasies are ashes now
Our house is burning down

Don’t look back don’t look back don’t look back it’s so sad
Through the smoke through the smoke through the smoke are the mem’ries we had
Look ahead look ahead look ahead t’ward the future for me please
Let the house behind us finally rest in peace

We tried our best we tried to keep the love alive
We held our breath till there was nothing we could hide
We built a life we built a home
We started out right
But the higher that our walls became we died
Our hopes and dreams and fantasies are ashes now
Our house is burning down

The Phoenix rose from the ashes alright
So I have hope for a horizon of light
So I’m leaving this god-forsaken town
As our house is burning down

We tried our best we tried to keep the love alive
We held our breath till there was nothing we could hide
We built a life we built a home
We started out right
But the higher that our walls became we died
Our hopes and dreams and fantasies are ashes now
Our house is burning
Our hopes and dreams and fantasies are ashes now
Our house is burning down
Our house is burning down
Our house is burning down
