FIRE

FIRE

By:

Sara Bareilles

[Verse 1]
Door clicks while his wheels start spinning on the pavement
And I go fill the space up where he has been staying
Won't lose much sleep, he never went that deep
"Love you," oh, you sweet thing, no, I never said that
Let me hold your ego while you get your bag packed
Don't take this the wrong way
But when the spade shows up, I call it by its first name

[Chorus]
We were, we were never gonna catch fire
We'd've burned up in the flames
Long before they ever rose up higher
Someday, I, I won't have to feel the cold, but I do now
So I'll know what it feels like when I feel fire, fire

[Post-Chorus]
Mmm, fire
Fire

[Verse 2]
Talk, touch, kiss, bend, this one's just like all the others
And I know all too well that I won't beat the waters
I held my breath to swim
The shallow shores aren't safe enough to dive in

 

[Chorus]
We were, we were never gonna catch fire
We'd've burned up in the flames
Long before they ever rose up higher
Someday, I, I won't have to feel the cold, but I do now
So I'll know what it feels like when I feel fire, fire

[Bridge]
That comes-and-stays fire
On-blood-and-veins fire
I've only ever wanted fire
In my chest, in my mouth, on my tongue, in my mind
In my soul, so my lungs can breathe in fire

[Chorus]
We'd've burned up in the flames
Long before they ever rose up higher
Someday, I, I won't have to feel the cold, but I do now
So I'll know what it feels like when I feel fire, fire
