"Sit Down By The Fire" as written by and Finn Andrews....
Born from the night in the roaring wind
Cast out of the shadows by an unknown hand
Warmed by the light of these falling limbs
drunk on the sadness of a universe unmanned

Across the water she clings to me
and in the rising karma I feel her at my side
My father's singing in the fallin' leaves
about the complicated beauty of a river run dry

Sit down by the fire
Sit down by the fire

It's hard to say
but I think you'd better
just Say you don't love me
you don't love me anymore

I been waiting in line
now I know I'll never
Overcome this madness
if I don't know for sure

Across the water she clings to me
and in the light of dawn
I see her at my side

and my father's singing in the fallin' leaves
there's no way out of this old world even if you try

So just sit down by the fire
sit down by the fire
there ain't no way to get what I want

Sit down by the fire
oh, sit down by the fire
There ain't no way to get what I want

Some day
a little rain is bound to fall

Some day
a little rain is bound to fall

Some day
a little rain is bound to fall

Some day

Over my head my heart and my feet
I'm drawn insane
you know I need you now

Over my head my heart and my feet
I'm drawn insane

Sit down by the fire love
sit down by the fire
there ain't no way to get what I want

Sit down by the fire love
sit down by the fire
there ain't no way to get what I want.

Oh, there ain't no way to get what I want.

    General CommentFuck.... My truest love had to move to Europe ;

    "Across the water she clings to me"
    "just Say you don't love me
    you don't love me anymore"

    and "Over my head my heart and my feet
    I'm drawn insane
    you know I need you now"

    Hits the target ...

    Seems like the humbling feeling of holding the pain close until you almost cherish it
