A fire to sleep in, a place to wet the skin
That just never be over feeling painful to get bitter as we grow older

I can dream, so can you
I try my best to get through her
Stones and trees, bend your knees
Slept for days in the rust and sea

Crush it, spend this heart
You know mine burns to tire

((((The lie that fell apart hit you to harden them other ones))))

I saw the pink in your eyes
You only saw the past in mine

Sometimes I think of you
The bitter rot you do
The pity some people told me
Don't mean less to you

She's so hungry but she won't eat
He's so tired but he can't sleep
Even the stars and fire won't cut down the trees
Pull down your eyelids in the past with me

There I felt the truth - He don't need someone new

Sometimes I think of you
The bitter rot you do
The pity some people told me
Don't mean less to you

    General CommentHere's what I hear:

    A fire to sleep in; a face to wear the skin
    let this never be over, feeling things will get better as we grow older
    I can dream and so can you
    I try my best to get through
    Stones and trees bend your knees
    Slept for days in the rust at sea

    Can't you spin this part, you broke my fire; iced its heart
    and laying the pile of cotton built the fire before the dark
    (I'm unsure about these two lines)


    I saw the future in your eyes,
    you only saw the past in mine
    sometimes i think of you
    draw birds and a choo-choo
    but pictures on paper don't mean, don't mean much to you

    She's so hungry but she won't eat
    He's so tired but he can't sleep
    We didn't start the fire, or cut down the trees
    Pull down your eyelids,
    give your thoughts to me

    Then I felt it too,
    we all meet someone new
    sometimes I think of you
    draw birds and a choo-choo
    but pictures on paper don't mean, don't mean much to you
