We lit the fire, on the river
To watch the smoke flood the air that night
Do you recall, do you remember
The way the bog accompanied these songs

You left home, with fire in your eyes from paper
You left home, a little more destroyed with those words

The phone call came, you're in trouble
The words between the sobs explained it all
Walk back through woods, exposed by moonlight
I got to you to see what went wrong

You left home, with fire on your tongue from anger
You came home, a little more destroyed with the sun

We lit a fire, in the attic
to watch the flames take away the past
We yelled out, then we wrote down
the words we could never get out

You came home, with fire on you tongue from anger
I left home, a little more concerned with the sun
