CAM Burning House LyricsI had a dream about a burning houseYou were stuck insideI couldn’t get you outI lay beside you and pulled you closeAnd the two of us went up in smoke


Love isn’t all that it seemsI did you wrongI’ll stay here with youUntil this dream is gone

I’ve been sleepwalkingBeen wondering all nightTrying to take what’s lost and brokeAnd make it rightI’ve been sleepwalkingToo close to the fireBut it’s the only place that I can hold you tightIn this burning house

I see you at a party and you look the sameI could take you backBut people don’t really changeWish that we could go back in timeI’d be the one you thought you’d find

Love isn’t all that it seemsI did you wrongI’ll stay here with youTill this dream is gone

I’ve been sleepwalkingBeen wondering all nightTrying to take what’s lost and brokeAnd make it rightI’ve been sleepwalkingToo close to the fireBut it’s the only place that I can hold you tightIn this burning house

Flames are getting bigger nowIn this burning houseI can hold on to you somehowIn this burning houseOh and I don’t wanna wake upIn this burning house

And I been sleepwalkingBeen wandering all nightTrying to take what’s lost and brokeAnd make it rightI’ve been sleep walkingToo close to the fireBut it’s the only place that I can hold you tightIn this burning house

“It got played on the radio by Bobby Bones, and Cam played it, and it went up into the Top 20 in all genres , and Top 5 in country, without us promoting it at all,” Tyler Johnson shared during an interview with Taste of Country. “It chose itself. Country music fans chose it. We didn’t do it. It was 100 percent a song that was chosen by the fans. And still to this day, it hasn’t dropped out of the Top 30 of all genres on iTunes, and for some reason so many people just keep buying that song. People just seem to really love it.”
