Lyrics

Take off all of your skin
I'm brave when you're free
Shake off all of your sins
and give them to me.

Closer let me back, yeah
I wanna' be yours, wanna' be your hero
and my heart beats.

Chorus
Like the empires of the world unite
we are alive and the stars
make love to the universe
You're my wildfire every single night
we are alive and the stars
make love to the universe
and you touch me and I'm like
and I'm like, and I'm like
oooh oooh
and I'm like... Oooh
and I'm like... Oooh

I will follow you down wherever you go.
I am baby, I'm bound to you
and you know?
Closer, pull me in tight.

I wanna' be yours,
wanna' be your hero
and my heart beats

Chorus
Like the empires of the world unite
we are alive and the stars
make love to the universe
You're my wildfire every single night
we are alive and the stars
make love to the universe
and you touch me and I'm like
and I'm like, and I'm like
oooh oooh
We are alive
and I'm like... Oooh
We are alive

Bridge
I'm just gonna' raise my head
walk up to the final edge and I'm gonna fall
(And the stars make love to the universe)
I'm just gonna' raise my head
and hold you close

Chorus
Like the empires of the world unite
we are alive and the stars
make love to the universe
You're my wildfire every single night
we are alive and the stars
make love to the universe
and you touch me and I'm like
and I'm like, and I'm like
oooh oooh
and I'm like... Oooh
and I'm like... Oooh
and I'm like... Oooh
and I'm like... Oooh
