Fire

Album: Saint Cloud (2020)
  • That's what I wanted
    It's not as if we cry a river, call it rain
    West Memphis is on fire in the light of day
    Give me something, it ain't enough
    It ain't enough

    I take it for granted
    If I could love you unconditionally
    I could iron out the edges of the darkest sky
    For some of us it ain't enough
    It ain't enough

    And I take off driving
    Past places been tainted
    I put on a good show for you
    And when I turn back around
    Will you drain me back out
    Will you let me believe that I broke through?

    Tomorrow could feel like a hundred years later
    I'm wiser and slow and attuned
    And I am down on my knees
    I'm a bird in the trees
    I can learn to see with a partial view
    I can learn to be easy as I move in close to you

    And that's what I wanted
    It's not as if we cry a river, call it rain
    West Memphis is on fire in the light of day
    Give me something, it ain't enough
    It ain't enough
    I take it for granted
    If I could love you unconditionally
    I could iron out the edges of the darkest sky
    For some of us it ain't enough
    It ain't enough Writer/s: Kathryn Crutchfield
