Into the Fire by Crimson Quintessence 2018


Listen as this day unfolds

Rain on my window as the wind blows

I’m a little bit crazy for you

Just sitting home waiting for you.


Today, was the day from hell

It just wasn’t going well

I’ve been missing you for some time

Can’t come to terms that you’re no longer mine

I’m scared, and it makes me cry.


Now we’re just strangers

You wanted us to go back

Just to being friends

How could you do that

Let all that we had come to an end.


How can we go back to being pretenders?

Once we turned the tides

Revealing all we felt

It was just you and I

Why did you just let it all go by?


Drums of our heartbeats echoing in the night

We made a pledge

Forever we’d be together

We’d always keep up the fight

Revelations made in our bed

Can never clear from inside my head.


Head down, fading in and out of consciousness

Should learn to pull myself out of my own damn head

But my rational thoughts disappear

I wish I didn’t feel so strongly about you

Trying to solve this puzzle of us

Your name whispered on top of the waves

The sound blows again and again on my mind.


I couldn’t go there

We can’t turn back the clock

You left me standing there

Speechless, broken and in shock.


I wish I didn’t feel so strongly about you

Were you biding your time

Waiting for it all to fail.


The lights were dimming

Stereo on, the band started singing

I try to move around

Trying to remember I am alive.


How I fell head-over-heals

Into something I thought was so real

Now, we’re just strangers

I can no longer feel

Something that ain’t real

It’s gone

Passed by

 Strike a match, into the fire.

I broke down just then

How come I still care

I was just frozen and I’m drowning

Because I see you everywhere.


Everything we both knew

Nothing is left now

You have moved on

And I’m alone now

I can’t be strong

How can I go on some how?


Underneath the surface

I want you to take away my pain

I didn’t want this

How did we both fail again?


What do we do when it all falls apart?

Where do we go with a broken heart?

Every time I think I’m getting stronger

Into the fire, memories come back

And I fall apart.


Wanting you inside my arms again

I can’t lose that vision again

Strike a match again, into the fire again

How can I let a wild boy go free?

How can I get back to just being me?


If ever you should see me

Just Keep on walking by

Because the memories of you and I

Only ever make me cry.


Days go by

I close my eyes

I’m so damn tired

It’s you

Made all my dreams come true

Then you took it all away

And left me feeling blue

Strike the match,

Back into the fire.


All I have left is the sadness in my heart

Drowning inside my own head

We took the best thing we ever had

And killed it, and pushed it into the fire

You are to blame


It’s hard, It’s so fucking twisted

I’m giving up on you

I’ve forgiven you

But I fucking hate you

And I love you just the same

Strike the match, into the fire.
