Building Me A Fire

Well I’m lonely now

More than I used to be

I need more from you

More than you need from me

Well I’m stranded here

But I don’t need to be

 

So I’m building me a fire

And the smoke’s gonna lead you

Well I’m building me a fire

And the smoke’s gonna lead you

Yeah I’m building me a fire

And the smoke’s gonna lead you

 

Well my solitude

Sure gave me peace of mind

It made all of my crooked ways

That much harder to find

But then all I knew

Became a memory

 

So I’m building me a fire

And the smoke’s gonna lead you

Well I’m building me a fire

And the smoke’s gonna lead you

Yeah I’m building me a fire

And the smoke’s gonna lead you

 

So I ask you my friend

Why you keep me out here

Is it being alone

Or having a friend that you fear?

And if you only knew

Just what you mean to me

 

So I’m building me a fire

And the smoke’s gonna lead you

Well I’m building me a fire

And the smoke’s gonna lead you

Yeah I’m building me a fire

And the smoke’s gonna lead you
