A Fire in a Nameless Town Lyrics

[Verse 1: Tom DeLonge]
I think we started something that we can't deny
A fire in a nameless town
I'm really not that special and you're all I have
I'm scared to death you'll figure it out
And when the train arrives on time, I'll know
If you were like the wind or not, I'll know
Your eyes have written something on the back of bedroom walls
Your sheets are here to catch your fall
And if you leave this life behind, I'll stall
Will you imagine you and I at all?

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
Go, I don't mind
I'll wait here if you search for yourself there
Don't forget us this time
Please stay here one more night

[Verse 2: Tom DeLonge]
The smoke is in the distance, a sign of reverie
A fire in a nameless town
I called you at the moment your image came to me
The bleeding of the heart, I'm down
The memory of us won't disappear
I'll walk you home from school each day for years

[Chorus: Tom DeLonge]
Go, I don't mind
I'll wait here if you search for yourself there
Don't forget us this time
Please stay here one more night

[Outro: Tom DeLonge]
Go, I don't mind
I'll wait here if you search for yourself there
Don't forget us this time
Please stay here one more
Go, I don't mind
I'll wait here if you search for yourself there
Don't forget us this time
Please stay here one more night
