Solitude was commonplace
A refuge from the storied pain
That haunted me for years on end

If I stayed away from happiness
Embraced the freedom in loneliness
No one could break my heart again

But I could never have planned
On what I would find
When you came along, well I knew it was time

Yeah you, you got the best of me
And I can’t defend against, or run from this
‘Cause your love’s redefining what fire in the heart can be
And that’s a love, a love that I can’t resist
Baby, you’ve got a love, a love that I can’t resist

Like a wild fire spreading fast
Covering old wounds caused in the past
A blazing roar your love can be

There’s no way to fight this fire now
It’s burning all my defenses down
Consuming every part of me

But I could never’ve prepared
For the force you would be
Never in my life did I think I would see this

But you, you got the best of me
And I can’t defend against, or run from this
‘Cause your love’s redefining what fire in the heart can be
And that’s a love, a love that I can’t resist
Oh no, you’ve got a love, a love that I can’t resist

I was running from the chance of it
Trying not to ever recommit
Keeping my heart away from from everyone
But you stole it straight from my hand
And it’ll never be mine again
And I don’t want you to ever let go

Yeah you, you got the best of me
And I can’t defend against, or run from this
‘Cause your love’s redefining what fire in the heart can be
And that’s a love, a love that I can’t resist
Oh no, you’ve got a love, a love that I can’t resist
