Bonfire

This song is by Beat Happening and appears on the album Black Candy (1989).

Drums along the beach at night keep pacing...
Drum stop heart and start the rites of mating...
What's it gonna be? (Bonfire...)
Is it him or me? (Bonfire...)
Keep throwing the wood on till one is gone...

Bonfire, flames reach higher.
Drum beat crying, embers dying.
Bonfire, oh, bonfire...

Broken line and ever-endless waiting...
Blood and sinew pull away past fating...
Who's it gonna be? (Bonfire...)
A boy like him or me? (Bonfire...)
Keep beating the drums until one is gone...

Bonfire, bonfire, bonfire, oh, bonfire.
There's two bid to be hers, (Bonfire...)
But only one can serve. (Bonfire...)
Bonfire, oh, bonfire...

Sweat and smoke and watch the embers glow,
My heart starts beating faster now, I know.
She made up her mind like that,
She's dressed like a jungle cat.
Now this jaguar queen will be my own...

Bonfire, flames reach higher.
Drum beat crying, embers dying.
Bonfire, oh, bonfire...
Bonfire, oh, bonfire...

Oh... bonfire...
