You burned so bright.
Something in your smile
seemed warm like the sun
and it fooled me for a while.

You had me believing
that the smile was just for me.
Didn't see the flames from your mouth.
I was gullible and naive.

I was drawn to you
like a pyro to fire.
You led me on
as you and my innocence conspired.

Maybe you got what you wanted
but I'll call it a lesson learned.
I played with matches
and I got burned.
