Lyrics

I SEE FIRES BURNING
(Littlejohn/Knable/Allen)
BPM: 84
VERSE
Tippy toe through the bedroom
Little gasoline on the floor
Men don't ever leave me
Got a match in my top drawer

You should have said "I'm sorry"
Before you went to bed
You know you can't argue
With the voices in my head

CHORUS
I see fires burning
Red flames in my eyes
Hurts me to watch another true love die
Hurts me to watch another true love die

VERSE
I'm cleaning up the evidence
Taking out the trash
A broken bourbon bottle
And a torn up photograph

Its best you go on sleeping
Peaceful and serene
Cause if you don't wake up
You won't hear the sirens scream

I really love my husbands
I keep 'em for myself
Gotta half a dozen urns in my closet on the shelf
