Chrissy’s Fire

Chrissy’s Fire

words/music © matt ralph 2001

You lit by firelight,

You paint your mermaids in colours of blue and green,

You sat upon your knees,

Mingus was close by,

Curled up and fast asleep,

You sat in silence,

You sat complete,

You tend the fire,

I feel the heat,

Chrissy your fire burns all through the night,

Your fire’s my hearts,

Sweet breath of life,

I see it dancing in your eyes,

We watch the setting sun,

You wake at sunrise,

Your lips are sugary sweet,

No warming up just feel,

My heart for you and me,

We burn together,

I see it dance for you,

I see the flames,

You’re taken far away,

I see your eyes,

They change,

Chrissy your fire burns all through the night,

Your fire’s my hearts,

Sweet breath of life,

I see it dancing in your eyes,

Your love’s a special love,

You know of all the dates,

You don’t forget them,

I see you make the calls,

I see the way you touch,

The ones that get them,

Then there’s a smiling face,

There’s a coming home,

You open up the door,

You let it out,

You let it known,

Chrissy your fire burns all through the night,

Your fire’s my hearts,

Sweet breath of life,

I see it dancing in your eyes,
