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

What a voice! Lloyd Cole is an amazing story teller! I can hardly wait till Sept. 2010...the release of Lloyd Cole's new album,(CD for you youngsters.)

David Pascoe

I started watching this at 7:58am today!

Gareth Edwards

An absolutely amazing song from one of my favourite Lloyd Cole albums. Not sure I'd want to hear it for the first time at 7.59 though...

Noel Riddell

My favorite track from 'Love Story'. Lloyd + Neil = brilliance


good stuff: thanks for posting.

Ed Yid

My favourite album. I know all the lyrics,as i used them to get my (then) baby daughter to sleep!!! Genius!!!!




I love this song, this album, this artist.... and feel such sympathy for the kids having to learn about how much love sucks before they've even had their big breakfast... (and even more sympathy for Mr. Cole having to play on morning telly).


Live acoustic performance from 1995 of  "'Like Lovers Do" by Lloyd Cole
