Burn It Down

i drove a brand new car
colored black and red
and a big old house
with a king-sized bed
all money could buy
was all that i had
till one day i laughed
and my woman said

you know you're playing with fire
you burned it down to the ground
down down down to the ground

i traveled in first class
anytime i chose
playing on the road
town to town show to show

and one day it all
came to a head
when she found her sister sleeping in my bed

she said you're playing with fire
you burn me down to the ground
down down to the ground

i went from black to red
all my money spent
from 5th Avenue down
to living in a room
from champagne on ice
to canned beans and rice
i lost everything i knew
just by crossing you

you said you're playing with fire
i burn it down to the ground
down down down to the ground
