Up In Flames

Disco: A Coming Of Age [2010]
Autor: Andrew Laidlaw

Fell asleep on your shoulder, and when I woke up 

I was covered in questions 

We had a fire that smouldered, but suffocated in a cloud of rejection 

What happened when you said 

‘I’ll never ignore you, you know I love you I’d do anything for you’? 

 

What you gonna do when it all goes up in flames? 

When your luck’s gone running and your dream’s gone sour and you’ve only got yourself to blame? 

When it all goes up in flames? 

 

Fell asleep in a corner and when I woke up I was covered in scratches 

Without a fire I’m dormant, give me a lover and a packet of matches 

What happened when you said ‘Hold on for me, Baby’? 

It’s not the ending, it’s the waiting ‘round that scares me 

 

What you gonna do when it all goes up in flames? 

When your luck’s gone running and your dream’s gone sour and you’ve only got yourself to blame? 

When it all goes up in flames, when it all goes up in 

 

And when you think you’re on a hiding to nothing, hide it, hide it, don’t let anybody know 

It’s a fool who lets their colours show 

 

Broke me my heart, wrote me a letter, no one wrote back, no one, no, never 

I was too young, I was too clever, now I’ve grown up but I know no better 

 

What you gonna do when it all goes up in flames? 

When your luck’s gone running and your dream’s gone sour and you’ve only got yourself to blame? 

When it all goes up in

What you gonna do when it all goes up in flames? 

When your luck’s gone running and your dream’s gone sour and your heart don’t feel the same?
