The cold cold fire burns my skin and slowly eats away
The cold cold flames both lick my wounds and tear my new
She came along with the sun she came with fire
She also let the coldness in by leaving me with open doors
And always always with such tender smile
Always always made me feel so right
Just as elusive as ever
This struggle to capture
The essence of something
Incredibly hopeful
Potentially painful
Emotional piercing
Poetically soothing
Efficiently healing

Can hardly believe it now that the lights are out
Can hardly believe who I was except when I close my eyes
Just as elusive as ever
This struggle to capture
The essence of something
Incredibly hopeful
Potentially painful
Emotional piercing
Poetically soothing
Efficiently healing
