From the album Roads Water and Orange
Water Out With Fire- There’s a distance in that kiss, lips that ricochet, that glance and miss. Your sweet nothings drown my ears. Words get watered down and fall like tears. We’ve burned the bridge to our desire. We can’t put water out with fire. / When our eyes strike up a spark, it’s not quite enough to hide the dark. Love’s dim promise chills the flame. In our aftermath, we share the blame. Dirty laundry lines the wire. We can’t put water out with fire / There’s a gluttony in love, and sometimes little left to rise above. I’d hoped that Heaven would be higher. We can’t put water out with fire.
