Blind Bonfire

Album: Ursa Major (2009)
  • A little early in spring, a bonfire ring
    She's shivering alone
    I bumped into you somehow
    But you can wear

    My duct-taped vest
    It's a party best
    It's really all I own
    Everything's changing now

    And I am high like a star that's flying
    Cassiopeia
    Everything's changing now

    She said it's alright
    She said no don't die alone
    There's no goodbyes

    Lightning comes and lightning goes
    And it's all the same to me
    Let it in
    Cuz I want you so
    I can hardly breathe or release
    Into one thousand pieces
    I have broke into
    Over you
    The chain will soon be gone,
    I keep burning on and on and on

    If nothing else I am myself
    That's all I have to give
    Everything's changing now

    Oh we could live like kings
    If we take a risk
    Or we could live in doubt
    Everything's changing now
    Oh now
    Come on, come on

    And lightning comes and lightning goes
    And it's all the same to me
    Let it in
    Cuz I want you so
    I can hardly breathe or release
    Into one thousand pieces
    I have broke into
    Over you
    The chain will soon be gone,
    And I keep burning on and on

    This, this is, this is the last time, its the last time
    This, this is, this is your goodbye
    This, this is, this is the last time
    This, this is, this is your goodbye

    Some girls will break you down
    Just to see you come undone
    Everything's changing now

    Maybe you and I are cursed
    Maybe you and I are one
    And that's the universe
    Around, around she drags you

    Lightning comes and lightning goes
    It's all the same to me
    Let it in
    Cuz I want you so
    I can hardly breathe or release
    Into one thousand pieces
    I have broke into
    Over you
    We'll stop the flames at dawn,
    I keep burning on and on and on
    I really love you!

    Did you get what you wanted?
    Did you get what you wanted?
    Did you get what you wanted?
