Crowded House – Playing With Fire Lyrics

The chairman’s looking out for me
And fortune used to favor me
Lately I’ve been lying frozen in my bed
Feeling like the end isn’t far away
Now some might say
We’re losing ground
I’ve never seen such a thing
Never seen such a thing
To thank your enemy
My wife is wild in quarantine
The chairman’s got it in for me
And my brain is getting closer to the edge
But I can’t explain that trip to her
Now some might say
We’re winding down
I’ve never seen such a thing
Never seen such a thing
We’re playing with fire
And we’re playing with fire
And we’re playing with fire
And this time, let’s all be quiet
The next generation’s talking
We’re behind the wheel
We’re driving straight to the wall
Pretend it’s alright
We’ll make in time
Be equal to the fight
Be someone be saving lives
When my legs and my arms let go
That’s when my hands and my heart say no
We’re playing with fire
And this time
And some may say
We’ll turn it round
If you believe such a thing
I’ll believe such a thing
