Forest Fire
Lloyd Cole Lyrics


She crossed herself as she put on her things
She has promised once before not to live this way
If she don't calm down she will burn herself out
Like a forest fire, well doesn't that make you smile

If you don't slow down, I swear that I'll come round
And mess up your place, let's go for a spin
They say we shouldn't even know each other
And that we'll be undone
Don't it make you smile like a forest fire

I believe in love, I'll believe in anything
That's gonna get me what I want and get me off my knees
Then we'll burn your house down, don't it feel so good
There's a forest fire every time we get together

Hey pick you up, put you down
Rip you up and spin you round
Just like we said we would
'Cause we're a forest fire
Believe you me, we'll tear this place down

If we get caught in this wind, then we could burn the ocean
If we get caught in this scene, we're gonna be undone
It's just a simple metaphor
It's for a burning love
Don't it make you smile like a forest fire

She crossed herself as she put on her things
She has promised once before not to live this way
If she don't calm down she will burn herself out
Like a forest fire, well doesn't that make you smile

If you don't slow down, I swear that I'll come round
And mess up your place, let's go for a spin
They say we shouldn't even know each other
And that we'll be undone
Don't it make you smile like a forest fire

I believe in love, I'll believe in anything
That's gonna get me what I want and get me off my knees
Then we'll burn your house down, don't it feel so good
There's a forest fire every time we get together

Hey pick you up, put you down
Rip you up and spin you round
Just like we said we would
'Cause we're a forest fire
Believe you me, we'll tear this place down

If we get caught in this wind, then we could burn the ocean
If we get caught in this scene, we're gonna be undone
It's just a simple metaphor
It's for a burning love
Don't it make you smile like a forest fire

"I came up with this epic solo, and Paul and I stayed up all night recording it. At 2am, with everything turned up, it sounded incredible, but the next day I thought we’d gone over the top and wanted to take some of it off. Paul said: “No, play it to everyone as it is” and everyone agreed it was incredible, so we left it." https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/oct/08/lloyd-cole-and-the-commotions-how-we-made-rattlesnakes

I remember singing this song in front of a mirror in 84 or 85 I was 14 -15 and thinking about a girl at school I wanted to go out with maybe if I memorized the song I could sing it to her but that was in my mind I was way too shy
