Fire
Waxahatchee Lyrics


That's what I wanted
It's not as if we cry a river, call it rain
West Memphis is on fire in the light of day
Give me something, it ain't enough
It ain't enough

I take it for granted
If I could love you unconditionally
I could iron out the edges of the darkest sky
For some of us it ain't enough
It ain't enough

And I take off driving
Past places been tainted
I put on a good show for you
And when I turn back around
Will you drain me back out
Will you let me believe that I broke through?

Tomorrow could feel like a hundred years later
I'm wiser and slow and attuned
And I am down on my knees
I'm a bird in the trees
I can learn to see with a partial view
I can learn to be easy as I move in close to you

And that's what I wanted
It's not as if we cry a river, call it rain
West Memphis is on fire in the light of day
Give me something, it ain't enough
It ain't enough
I take it for granted
If I could love you unconditionally
I could iron out the edges of the darkest sky
For some of us it ain't enough
It ain't enough

That's what I wanted
It's not as if we cry a river, call it rain
West Memphis is on fire in the light of day
Give me something, it ain't enough
It ain't enough
I take it for granted
If I could love you unconditionally
I could iron out the edges of the darkest sky
For some of us it ain't enough
It ain't enough

And I take off driving
Past places been tainted
I put on a good show for you
And when I turn back around
Will you drain me back out
Will you let me believe that I broke through?

Tomorrow could feel like a hundred years later
I'm wiser and slow and attuned
And I am down on my knees
I'm a bird in the trees
I can learn to see with a partial view
I can learn to be easy as I move in close to you

And that's what I wanted
It's not as if we cry a river, call it rain
West Memphis is on fire in the light of day
Give me something, it ain't enough
It ain't enough
I take it for granted
If I could love you unconditionally
I could iron out the edges of the darkest sky
For some of us it ain't enough
It ain't enough

I was stunned by the beauty of this song's voice... if I play.. it I play it more than once just because it is so emotionally gorgeous.. I am 71 tears old and love discovering gorgeous new music. Katie certainly does have some unconditional love packed up inside. Thanks Kati

Joshua Tree

watching her grow up from writing lo-fi fuzzy guitar melodies to becoming a full band leader to someone capable of penning this has been one of the greatest little secrets of growing in this decades history of music. Thanks Katie! Thanks Merge for the platform! See you at Union Transfer

Paul Barrientos

Totally agree, Joshua! Katie has been one of my favorite artists for the past 6-7 years and to see her become the artist she is today has been a great to see.

This song makes me happy when I'm sad and sad when I'm happy

Sean Garner

Luke Williams

You put it into words what we all feel.

@Pee-Wee Herman Ha!!!!! Indie is the best music. Yes, it’s not all great, but it’s better than any other type of music: Here are several good Indie songs:
Shark Smile-Big Thief
Never Enough-Jessy Lanza
Drunk Kid Catholic-Bright Eyes
Time Today-KERO KERO Bonito
Sister-Angel Olsen
