A matchstick burns this darkness bright,
Like a bonfire setting the sky alight,
And it burns everyone right through,
But not me, not me, Iím fireproof.

If you thought you could burn me,
Nice try, I donít catch fire that easily;
Iím covered in flame retardant skin,
Thereís no way youíre getting in.

I stand silhouetted in this heat shimmer,
And it seems I have begun to simmer;
On the outside Iím cool, but I burn within,
Somehow a spark of yours has slipped in.

And nothing I do can stop this wildfire,
I canít handle this heat and I perspire
When youíre near and I hear your voice
So sweet, and I pretend I have a choice.

So now Iím burnt all the way to the core,
And these ashes, these ashes are yours,
Ready for your soft breath to blow away,
And I tell myself Iím fireproof, but not today.
Author's Notes:
I actually sat down to write lyrics, and I only had the title, started writing, and this came out.
