lyrics

Lyrics:

"Well I don't understand why no-one is dancing"
I was giving all that I had and more
Well my worst nightmare is a thousand yard stare
across a rapidly emptying floor

As tears of shame fill my eyes
I feel the heat start to rise
And it's a hard lesson learned
To have your own worst fears confirmed
Yes, you've crashed and burned

Well I thought it sounded great when I stayed up late
I thought these words would cut to the core
But the self doubts started as the first few departed
If it's great how come I'm clearing the floor

As tears of shame fill my eyes
I feel the heat start to rise
And it's a hard lesson learned
To have your own worst fears confirmed
Yes, you've crashed and burned

Well it's easy now to see, it's you it's me
To have you heading for the door
It not quite what I was hoping for

I've been coasting downhill I've been hoping that we'll
rekindle these embers back into flame
But when I look into your eyes I see the spark has died
The old magic has all gone and I'm to blame

As tears of shame fill my eyes
I feel the heat start to rise
And it's a hard lesson learned
To have your own worst fears confirmed
Yes, you've crashed and burned
