  • I went to a copper
    To fix a hole in my shoe
    He took one look at my face and said
    "I can fix that hole in you."
    I beg your pardon, I'm not looking for a cure
    I've seen enough from my friends
    In the depths of the Godsick blues

    You know I am a liar
    You know I am a liar
    Nobody helps a liar

    Cause I've been down to Dixie
    And dropped acid on my tongue
    Dripped upon the land til enough was enough
    I was a little bit lighter and
    Adventure on my sleeve
    I was a little drunk and looking for company
    So I found myself a sweetheart
    With the softest of hands
    We were unlucky in love but I'd do it all again

    We built ourselves a fire
    We built ourselves a fire
    You know I am a liar
    You know I am a liar

    And you don't know what I've done

    And by the rollin' river
    Is exactly where I was
    There was no snake or cure for unlucky in love
    To be lonely is a habit
    Like smoking or taking drugs
    And I've quit them both
    But man, was it rough

    And now I am tired
    It just made me tired
    Let's build ourselves a fire
    Let's build ourselves a fire Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Phoenix from Denver, CoSounds more like SLC punk.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnA true confessional song. Jenny's voice is sweet but bold. She was a child actress as well.
