Fall Out Boy – My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up) Lyrics

Produced By: Butch Walker

You pyonged “Fall Out Boy – My Songs Know What Y...”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
Be careful making wishes in the dark
Can't be sure when they've hit their mark

Besides in the meantime I'm just dreaming of tearing you apart
I'm in the details with the devil
So now the world can never get me on my level

I just got to get you out of the cage
I'm a young lovers rage
Gonna need a spark to ignite

My songs know what you did in the dark

So light em up, up, up
Light em up, up, up
Light em up, up, up

I'm on fire [x2]

[Verse 2]
All the writers keep writing what they write
Somewhere another pretty vein just dies
I've got the scars from tomorrow and I wish you could see
That you're the antidote to everything except for me

A constellation of tears on your lashes
Burn everything you love
Then burn the ashes
In the end everything collides
My childhood spat back out the monster that you see

[Bridge & Chorus x2]
