"Fire Dies Down" as written by and Sindri Mar/bjarnason Sigfusson....
The fire died down
Carried it there into the house
Unclose your eyes
Let it all glow

One day this body will break,
One day these hands will shake.

I'm watching the grass glow
Shining through the dead leaves
Arched back and slow
Your plow in the snow

So let it all glow,
While the fire dies down.

Your clothes they have grown since I saw you last.
Summer makes us all into a soft knife in your hands.
Twist it into my skin
Wire to our cells?

One day our body will break,
One day our hands will shake.

Summer lightening spit me out
Onto the wet grass
Climb onto its back
Your smile, broken glass
Cold hands following down
No one's left warm

So let it all glow,
While the fire dies down.

Fire dies down
build a home in the ground
Let light in through the holes in the ceiling
Something to believe in

Let it all glow
Your name on fire and snow

One day our bodies will break,
One day our hands will shake.

    Lyric CorrectionThe fire died down
    Carried it there into the house
    Unclose your eyes
    Let it all glow

    One day this body will break,
    One day these hands will shake.

    I'm watching the grass glow
    Shining through the dead leaves
    Arched back and slow
    Your plow in the snow

    So let it all glow,
    While the fire dies down.

    Your clothes they have grown since I saw you last.
    Summer makes us all into a soft knife in your hands.
    Twist it into my skin
    Wire to our cells?

    One day this body will break,
    One day these hands will shake.

    Summer lightening spit me out
    Onto the wet grass
    Climb onto its back
    Your smile, broken glass
    Cold hands following down
    No one's left warm

    So let it all glow,
    While the fire dies down.

    Fire dies down
    build a home in the ground
    Let light in through the holes in the ceiling
    Something to believe in

    Let it all glow
    Your name on fire and snow

    One day these bodies will break,
    One day these hands will shake.

    General Comment"Your clothes they have grown since i saw you last
    summer makes us all into
    soft knife in your hands
    twist it into my skin
    while we're to (?) ourselves(?)"

    need help on the lyrics for the faster bit of this song.
