Dead Fire

from by Keith Paine

lyrics

If trouble’s what you want
Trouble’s gonna find you
It’s written in your eyes
Everything you’re going through

It’s written on your skin
Deep lines and faded sins
It’s all become the same
Now we know where to begin

There’s trouble that you know
And pain you’ll never understand
We’ve got so much of both
Cradled in our hands

Like need or desire
Like something burning in the night
We’re both trapped inside
The flame of a dead fire


There’s a sign on the road
Half a mile down and it makes me
Think of you
It’s battered and torn
Nothing around it
But it’s standing straight and true


I wonder where you are
Does the light ever touch your face?
When the tears start to fall
Do you ever see that place?

Where need met desire
Where nothing hurt us and nothing could
We’re both trapped inside
The flame of a dead fire

There’s a sign on the road
Half a mile down and it makes me
Think of you
It’s battered and torn
Nothing around it
But it’s standing straight and true

If trouble’s what you want
Trouble’s gonna find you
It’s written in your eyes
Everything you’re going through
