Civil Twilight - Church On Fire Lyrics

Two by two, they came into that sunlit room
The only church in this town
The only town that I ever knew.
I sat in the back row, next to the open door
So I could feel the breeze on my skin
And know that there's something more than just this.
I saw her walking down Belmont Avenue.
And from the back window of my father's car
You waved at me and I waved at you
We kissed after years of waiting,
Years of holding hands,
And I felt something shift inside my soul
That no man could understand.

I burn like a church on fire
In the light of the afternoon
I hope you can feel my desire
The flames rise for you.

One by one, I went through all the things I've done
To get to this place I stand
Where I look down and don't recognize my own hands.
I wrote you a letter for every day that I was away
But how many words does one man need to say what he needs to say

I burn like a church on fire
In the light of the afternoon
I hope you can feel my desire
The flames rise for you.

Yeah, that was me
I poured the gasoline
I lit the match for everyone to see
Fireworks in my heart
Yeah, that was me
I burned it to the ground
Yeah, that was me
I burned it all down
I burned this to the ground
Everything that has let us down
Everything that has let us down.

One by one, I went through all the things I've done.
