WORDS

SPANISH FIRE

Now I know what it takes to be near you.

But I can’t seem to give you the slip.

And how I feel like a drowning man swimming for the sinking ship.

 

So I’ll come clean.

I think it’s time. You ought to know.

 

Spanish fire can burn you down.

Spanish fire can burn you right down.

 

I’ve always hoped for a love like this.

But now it feels like cold hands around my neck.

Everybody loves a happy ending. 

Just like everybody loves a good car wreck.

 

You can’t knock down a heart of stone with wishing well dimes, but...

 

Spanish fire can burn you down.

Spanish fire...

 

It only gets harder the older I get.

I never really forgive, I never really forget.

I just keep chalking it up and putting it down to experience. 

But the one thing I’ve found is...

 

Spanish fire can burn you down.

Spanish fire can burn you right down.

Spanish fire...

Spanish fire...
