The Great Chicago Fire

from by Dustin Drennen

lyrics

I don't think that I'd think twice
About you putting on something for me to take off
I don't know about you but I'd like
To slip back into these sheets and let the sun rise
Well, darling girl you're awfully quiet
But I'll take your lips on mine as a promise
And in this awkward meantime
I'll try to find something for my heart, my hands, and my mind

If I'd been alive
I might have started the Great Chicago Fire
To keep myself occupied
To keep myself warm

It's cold out tonight
It's been colder, but then, it's been a while
I just need a little light
To keep myself warm

Give me time, to find my way
round the curves of your body in the failing light
You know I loose the urge to breathe sometimes
I just need a little of your spirit, bring me back to life
Sweet girl, keep me locked up in your smile
Never tell soul that you know where I can be found
I'll be right here, I'll wait it out
My lips on your lips, hands on your hips, your breath in my mouth

If I'd been alive
I might have started the Great Chicago Fire
To keep myself occupied
To keep myself warm

It's cold out tonight
It's been colder, but then, it's been a while
I just need a little light
To keep myself warm

I lost my way sometime last year
I'll admit I made some poor decisions
I spent three days in this cathedral
Telling my whole life story to an unholy ghost

Songs and poems from North Idaho: a little folk and americana, a little Texas country, maybe more cowpunk, clear love of the West, especially the Northwest, an affinity for good beer, some romance and wreckage, some creepy tales, a general distrust for the establishment, a hopeful outlook all the same. ... more
