lyrics

You got a fire
A garland of wire
A prayer in the gutters of Love
Dust spins at your feet
Highways you breathe
In you, I can believe

We burn until we fall asleep
And ascend into a dream
A blanket of blue
From my heart to you
Your fire burns so tall

I watched the rain fall
A cascade of ropes
Onto the dirty street
You got a fire
The bane of it all
In you, I do believe

We burn until we fall asleep
And ascend into a dream
A blanket of blue
From my heart to you
Your fire burns so tall

(You've got a fire, and it burns so tall…)
