Lyrics
Light me on Fire
Light me on Fire
This is the first time I
Light me on fire
This is the first time I swear

She held his hands in her hands lightly
His hands fall to her knees damaged and pale
His eyes burned
His eyes burned

Light me on Fire
Light me on Fire
This is the first time I
Light me on fire
This is the first time I swear

He moved close to her look the bed slowly
She pull in close to him slowly
Does your chest hurt everyday?
He look away

Light me on Fire…

The clouds passed overhead brought the night brought the night yeah
Cars sped the overpass through the night through the night yeah
Her head fall to his lap say sing me the old songs
Sing me the old songs . . .
He took his words from the sky

Light me on Fire…

So, here we are so
She says so you are an angel
No
You are an angel
No he says
You are an angel . . .
Well I am terrified of time . . .

This is so awesome ..really a very emotional
and deep ...1st song ? this is so effective ..
you concentrate on emotions like 'neko case' ..
I like how you are trying to add the dulce ..
which is a rare instrument but what a sweet
sound ...good arranging ...I might say there
is a lil spots on the rhythm but thats all ..
kudos ...I think this is a very cool song ...

Now this is nice

I heard the David Bowie and went over to your page to see what else you had up. And this is a great tune. Your voice brings emotion and love how it's doubled L/R. Very, very cool song. Like it the way it is. Something that could have been used in Juno or Royal Tannenbaums.

Very nice indeed

I'm really digging this unique sound of yours. It sounds so modern with that hammered dulcimer coming and going through out. It sounds like an old old Cure song before they bought a drum machine and a Casio.

Really enjoyed this.

Thanks for the download.... oh, you didn't enable downloads.... Drat!
