Bonfires

This song is by Rickie Lee Jones and appears on the album Balm in Gilead (2009).

There's just one thing before I go
You are the sweetest boy I know
I've lived my whole life in the past
I awoke last night at last

I thought I'd finally won your heart that forever never part
And in sweet love we would grow old
Now I'm just a scavenger in the cold
I'm just a scavenger

All I can do is wish you well
And light the bonfires of hell
Honey, you hurt me bad this time
I'm burning everything I find

You hurt me bad this time
You nearly tore me from my mind
Before I knew I had been hurt
She laid her hair across your shirt
She laid her hair

All I can do is wish you well
And light the bonfires of hell
There's just one thing before I go
You are the sweetest boy I know
You are the sweetest boy

If there's a sun I'll watch it rise
To dry the tears out of my eyes
If there's a river you can bet
There'll be a sea from my heart yet
There'll be a sea from my heart yet
