Fire and I


I love fire
The way it dances
The way it smells
The way it looks
I believe we have a lot in common
Fire and I

You see I think of fire as a misunderstood creature
Whatever it touches it hurts
it kills
Mass destruction
Whether it trys to or not

Its dancing flames look lonesome
longing for love
Love that it may never find

I believe we have a lot in common
Fire and I
Whatever,
Whoever we touch
we eventually hurt
Whether we want to or not
