"Flame" as written by and Phillips,donald ...
When your hand brushed against mine
I thought I'd collapse
I'm no rolling stone
I gather too much moss
Maybe it's 'cos I'm getting
A little bit older
But oh how your neck
Flows to your shoulder
It draws me, it draws me to your flame

I wanna be near you
And blink in your light
And toast marshmallows
On a cold dark night
By your flame

Your flesh it melts in my mouth
Like Holy Communion
But you don't really care for
Jesus now do you?
A photograph of this love
Hangs on my wall
I would dare to speak its name
If I knew what it was called
I would dare to speak its name
If I knew what it was called

Rattle the one who's shadow
You're standing in
Under the branches after
It's been raining
On your flame
I wanna be near you
And blink in your light
And toast marshmallows
On a cold dark night
By your flame

Your brought your flame
Into the chambers of my heart
You brought your flame
Where all's been condemned to dark
And now your flame
Spits shadows on my walls
Shadow on my walls

    General CommentNever heard of this band before today, but this song was on The Amp and I actually waited til the end to see who it was by. I thought it sounded pretty good - it's not often I wait around to hear things. Um, if that makes sense.

    General CommentOh, what a great reference to Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah in here! I think this is about when you forget that you can fall in love, and suddenly you get hit out of nowhere with it. This song is kind of funny to me because the boy who reccommended this Bell X1 album to me kissed me for the first time after we roasted marshmallows for s'mores :)
