"Staring At the Embers" as written by and Tim Finn....
Staring at the embers
Of my memory
Trying to remember
Just what you meant to me
Now and then I’m falling
Alligators crawling
Staring at the embers

Sit right down before the fire
My bridges are all burning
A lady told me she was a liar
In love at least I’m learning

Staring at the embers
Of my memory
Staring at the embers
They’re all that’s left to me
Don’t know where I’m going
There’s no way of knowing
Staring at the embers

Staring at the embers
Of my memory
Trying to remember
Just what you meant to me
Now and then I’m falling
Alligators crawling
Staring at the embers

The flame has gone
you put it out
without a word of warning
The pleasure palace
Goes up in smoke
But this fool goes on yearning

Staring at the embers
Of my memory
Fireplace surrender
Please give her back to me
Now and then I’m falling
Alligators crawling
Staring at the embers

Staring at the embers
of my memory
Staring at the embers
They’re all that’s left of me
Now and then I’m falling
Alligators crawling
Staring at the embers

Staring at the embers
Good God I was
Staring at the embers...
