lyrics

i’m a forest fire in brightest summertime,
i’m so sorry you’ve come to this mind of mine
forest fires they fight in summertime
i’m so sorry you’ve come to this mind of mine

now you know what i crave about you:
this is how i behave without you
no don’t look at me now
why would i want you to see how i am
why should you give a damn?

i’m a forest fire in brightest summertime,
(I'm so sorry you've come to this mind of mine)
shine on, sun, it’s none of your concern
when i’m this hot something’s got to burn

for your mental health,
exchange your sense of self,
so what? (so what?)
not much (Not much)


if they treat this
like you treat me
i can beat this
easily

the worst thing i can think of
is to always be alone
so you burn the walls around me down
and tell me welcome home
but you say you think i’ll like it
can you feel the flame it feeds?
while you bide your time it's running out
when you bite your tongue it bleeds
it’s the worst thing i can think of
i’m deprived of privacy
i can never really think because
you’re always here with me

where’s there’s smoke there must be fire,
where there’s fire you are near
not a tree falls in the forest
when there’s no one to hear

now you know what i crave about you:
this is how i behave without you
No don’t look away now
Why should i care if you see how i am
Why should i give a damn?
