Start A Fire

The air is chilly sky is black
There’s some things that are never comin’ back
Everything good is comin’ undone
Something tells me the time has come

To douse some wood in gasoline
Strike a match or two or three
Burn everything from the windshield to the tires
The best revenge may be livin’ well
Well tonight we’ll torch it all to hell
Watch those flames climb up higher
It’s time to start a fire

I tried to save it but I couldn’t
Things went the way they probably shouldn’t
Almost laid these feelings low
Too late now here I go

To douse some wood in gasoline
Strike a match or two or three
Burn everything from the windshield to the tires
The best revenge may be livin’ well
Well tonight we’ll torch it all to hell
Watch those flames climb up higher
It’s time to start a fire

Coal is smokin’ beneath my feet
I hope I can stand the heat
