Ordinary Feeling

Right, I'm the guy who doesn't like to write lyrics (will also reply in my thread again...), here's my latest attempt. Not a native speaker, and no, some lines aren't really supposed to make sense... what do you think?

...

I want to kill the flame with the fire
I tie myself to you with a wire
when the lights go down

don’t you go when you light my call
hide the lie when you’re bound to fall
when the lights go down

this was for the day, this was for the night
an ordinary feeling
this was for the day, this was for the night
an ordinary feeling

I was supposed to give you the key
I let it be, I let you believe
when the lights go down

I want to free the drop from the river
I lay on the ground and watching you shiver
when the lights go down

this was for the day, this was for the night
an ordinary feeling
this was for the day, this was for the night
an ordinary feeling

I still can’t decide to make it right
I still can’t find the end of the fight
when the lights go down
My heart runs away my body is lame
my thoughts run in circles, always the same
when the lights go down

this was for the day, this was for the night
an ordinary feeling
this was for the day, this was for the night
an ordinary feeling

depending on the genre these lyrics could be good or kinda jumping around.

Try focusing on something throughout the song, picture a scenario with your minds eye and just elaborate, kinda dancing around a topic.

I have trouble staying on topic with my lyrics and they usually come out sounding too figurative and spacey, so this advice is to myself as well.
