Robyn Cage — The Arsonist & The Thief lyrics

They met in the desert- their encounter was brief
He was an Arsonist, she was a Thief
He struck a match and she burned with desire
She stole his heart, he set hers on fire

Love burns, but it don’t burn long
A spark in the dark seems so strong
If you find it, keep it, hold on
Turn your back for a second and it’s gone

The desert heat was a feeble flame
Their bonfire blazed like the future, like fame
They danced ‘round the fire, got high off the fumes
They drank communion and howled at the moon

Love burns, but it don’t burn long
A spark in the dark seems so strong
If you find it, keep it, hold on
Turn your back for a second and it’s gone

Before long, he was looking around
She wasn’t the only thief in town
Everyone wants love that’s real
So we beg, we borrow, we steal

Just before leaving he stole back his heart
She began looking for fires to start
She fed her own flames ‘til her spirit was choked
Her heart and soul- cinders and smoke

Love burns, it don’t burn long
A spark in the dark seems so strong
If you find it, keep it, hold on
Love burns, love burns….
In the end it don’t matter if it’s real or a con
Turn your back for a second and it’s gone
Turn your back for a second and it’s gone
Turn your back for a second and it’s gone
