​Log On Your Fire

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album The News (1979).

Hull

Just a log on your fire, that's all you desire
To warm you at night and keep you from harm
A barrel to your gun.

A barrel to your gun, that's all I become
When you wandered away from that day in the rain
A pawn in your game.

Just a pawn in your game, that's all I became
When you started to play with my burning desire
A log on your fire.

Well, I've got news for you and I hope you can use it to advantage
The past is all gone and the future has now to be managed
Bearing that in mind I've decided to decline your generous offer of marriage
I won't regret it, I won't let it get me down.

A jewel in your crown, just think of me that way
In future when they say : 'How've you been ? What's your tale ?'
I'll be the wind in your sail.

The wind in your sail but I'm sailing away
Like a bird on the wing flying higher and higher
Baby, better put a big log on your fire.

The wind in your sail but I'm sailing away
Like a bird on the wing flying higher and higher
Baby, better put a big log on your fire.
