Burning House of Love
by X

Album: Ain't Love Grand (1985)
  • Drive by my house late at night
    You can see from the freeway above
    No silhouette, but a light left on
    Burning there for love

    smoke is rising from the fire
    Coming out my back door
    I'm inside, sound asleep
    Cigarette on the floor
    Burning there for love

    well I can still remember
    A couple of years ago
    When the smoke and flame called my name
    It was a burning house of love

    that rusty nail over our front door
    Is where I hung our tears in the rain
    I threw that horseshoe into the weeds
    To see what luck can bring

    cause you're in your bed, I'm in mine
    On either side of town
    I think I might take a ride
    And burn your love house down
    Like a burning house of love
