Lyrics

Just Give me the Matches

Written By: Leslie Powell,Shaye Smith,Aj Masters, Aj Masters

Your all I want-- all I need- you’re everything to me
And I cant -understand- why you don’t believe
And you asked am I sure do I have any doubts
Am I really ready to burn all my bridges down

Just Gimme the matches Babayy
I’m ready to leave it in the past
just Gimme the matches babay
I’m ready to run- never looking back


How can they say- what we have - its not really love
And we cant- comprehend- cause we’re much too young.
But I know- in my heart- the life that I desire
So stand back and watch as I set it all on fire


Just Gimme the matches Babayy
im ready to leave it in the past
just Gimme the matches babay
I’m ready to run- never looking back

Break down---
Just Gimme the matches Babayy
im ready to leave it in the past
just Gimme the matches babay
I’m ready to run- ready to Run

Just Gimme the matches Babayy
im ready to leave it in the past
just Gimme the matches babay
I’m ready to run- never looking back
