lyrics

Building Fires

Wait on hold your time shall come
Say your words and loose the tongue

Now you build with earth and stone
With patient toil the seeds are sown

Come back here my little one
Come back here with your bleeding heart
Come back here I see you’re building fires
Come back here to the ones you love

Been so high to risk it all
The seasons build with a livid force

Little one’s in him belong
They’re so weak with the temptation

Come back here my little one
Come back here with your bleeding heart
Come back here I see you’re building fires
Come back here to the ones you love

It’s more than enough, cry out I love you
It’s more than enough to secretly hunt truth
More than enough, say that we’re broken
It’s more than enough, rise to occasion

Come back here my little one
Come back here with your bleeding heart
Come back here I see you’re building fires
Come back here to the ones you love
