​Staring At The Embers

This song is by Tim Finn and appears on the album Escapade (1983).

Staring at the embers
Of my memory, trying to remember
Just what you meant to me
Now and then I'm falling
Alligators crawling
Staring at the embers

Sit right down before the fire
My bridges are all burning

A lady told me she was a liar
In love at least I'm learning

Staring at the embers of my
Memory staring at the embers
They're all that's left to me

Don't know where I'm going
There's no way of knowing
Staring at the embers

The flame has gone you put it out
Out without a word of warning
The pleasure palace goes
Up in smoke

But this fool goes on yearning
Staring at the embers
Of my memory
Fire-place surrender
Please give her back to me
Now and then I'm falling
Alligators crawling
Staring at the embers
Staring at the embers of
My memory
Trying to remember just
What you meant to me
Now and then I'm falling
Alligators crawling
Staring at the embers (repeat)
