Lyrics to Indoor Fireworks
We play these parlour gamesWe play at make believeWhen we get to the part where I say that I’m going to leave
Everybody loves a happy ending but we don’t even tryWe go straight past pretending
To the part where everybody loves to cry
Indoor fireworks
Can still burn your fingers
Indoor fireworks
We swore we were safe as houses
They’re not so spectacular
They don’t burn up in the sky
But they can dazzle or delight
Or bring a tear
When the smoke gets in your eyes
You were the spice of life
The gin in my vermouth
And though the sparks would fly
I thought our love was fireproof
Sometimes we’d fight in public darling
With very little cause
But different kinds of sparks would fly
When we got on our own behind closed doors
It’s time to tell the truth
These things have to be faced
My fuse is burning out
And all that powder’s gone to waste
Don’t think for a moment dear that we’ll ever be through
I’ll build a bonfire of my dreams
And burn a broken effigy of me and you
Indoor Fireworks Lyrics
