"English Fire" as written by and Gavin Rossdale....
World news, world news
Well you said let's be free
Well you said I'll be me
Death row hearts are hard to mend
Why shoot myself for your sins

All my love, all my love
All my love, all my love

Well you said retribute
Well you said substitute
Burn myself on your bed
Your crown of thorns my crown of lead
I'll wake up before I drown
I'll wake up before I drown

All my love, all my love (let's me free)
All my love, all my love (let's me free)
All my love, all my love
All my love, all my love

We'll hang ourselves by the English fire
We'll hang ourselves

All my love, all my love
All my love, all my love (let's me free)
All my love, all my love (let's me free)
All my love, all my love

I'll wake up before I drown
All my love (let's me free)
All my love
All my love (let's me free)

    General Commenthey, i like this song. First couple times i heard it, i thought it was shitty too, but it grew on me, and now i really like it. Good song, you just got to get used to it. Its different. And i think english fire= end of a relationship. But thats just my opinion.

    General CommentI have no idea what this song means. I think it's about a relationship.

    But i have to say that the song rocks like hell. The guitar work is amazing. I think that Bush is one of the best rock bands the UK ever produced. No matter what pepople say about them, they have proven there consistancy by releasing briliant albums.
