Circle of Fire

Album: Martinis and Bikinis (1994)
  • I saw you standing there alone
    I wondered if you wanted what you owned
    Your magic ladders in the sky
    Tie you to the place where angels fight

    Our madness envy and desire
    Ring you with an unforgiving fire
    You love them with a burning soul
    By the time he sold the ashes they were cold

    Fingers crying for you
    Sleeping on your doorstep for the proof
    We love ghosts we want to see through
    The blood and bones that hide us from the truth

    You circle the city from the sky
    Watching children swallowing your lies
    It breaks you but you will never fall
    You've learned that love is greater than it all Writer/s: LESLIE PHILLIPS
