The lead single off BTH's sophomore album, Phases


Wake me up when I'm hanging over
Not a crush, just a rush
God I hate being sober
Turn me on, turn me out
And come a little bit closer
Work me out, open up
I wanna be your blackout, fucked up, one-night wonder

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Bang bang, baby
Fire away

Popping pills with black coffee and a Kamel Red
I hate the cold but Russian is my favorite roulette
Turn me on, tie me down
I want you taking me over
Leave a kiss on my lips, your nails in my back

Feel like a bullet just waiting to load
One part silver, one glitter and gold
Ready, steady, bang bang, baby
Fire away, fire away

(Fire away)

(Oh yeah!)
Fire away~
Fire away~
Fire away~
Fire away~

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Bang bang, baby
Fire away

Fire away
Fire away
Fire away
Fire away
