lyrics

Firestarter
© Kira Small - Kilyrann Songs (ASCAP)

I shoulda known by the trail of smoke dragging in your wake
You wouldn't stay
Only thing you'd ever done when love dug in too deep
Was burn it down and walk away

You swore those days were over – you'd laid your matches down
And found the one you'd never leave
So tell me why I'm standing here soaked down to my skin
In tears and kerosene

Fire-starter - I thought you'd be a better man
Fire-starter – I put my heart in an arsonist's hands
but I won't burn again

In the comfort of the shadows, way on out of sight
You hid in shame
While I stood right in the center of that roaring blaze
and turned my face into the flame

CHORUS

Whatcha gonna do when there's nothing left to burn – fire-starter
Whatcha gonna do when there's nothing left to burn – fire-starter
Whatcha gonna do when there's nothing left to burn, nowhere left to turn

CHORUS

Ashes, ashes, I won't fall down
Ashes, ashes, I won't fall down
Whatcha gonna do when there's nothing left to burn – fire-starter
Ashes, ashes, I won't fall down
