Quickfire, I tried to be your solitude
And to border and protect and to greet you

Quickfire, I tried to be fun
But by the time that I was drunk you were gone

Quickfire, I tried to not be sad
But the fabric wore away upon my knee

Quickfire, I tried to be romantic
But the silver is still waiting on the mantle
Where your mother left it sitting last fall...
La, da-da

Quickfire, I tried to take your gifts
But I cannot change the way I hate most objects

Quickfire, I thought about the prize
But they told me that I’d have to compromise

Quickfire, I tried to be good
But my fathers live inside me like old servants

Quickfire, I tried to not go crazy
But the winter got inside me anyway
And it knows how long to stay...
La, da-da

Quickfire, are we bound to be alone
Or be together like a stone is with a stone?

Quickfire, we are bound to be alone
Or be together like a stone is with a stone

Quickfire, I have tried to settle down
But I am lifted by the sirens in my blood
And they are not done with their song...
La, da-da
