Amy 03:20
Darlin’ Amy, God I love her, she’s the Devil in disguise She don’t fear no God above her, prefers the taste of spit and fire And I would bow down right before her, she could bring me to my knees But the young don’t last forever, she gon’ die in ecstasy, she gon’ die in ecstasy yeah Be courageous, be forgiving, be the air in every lung Be the hero, be the villain, be the song that’s never sung But don’t you ever be the darkness that takes my baby away from me Tell the preacher he can have all but this one, ‘cos this one’s for you Amy Yeah this one’s for you Amy Acapella, arcangel, misty eyes that never see Choose sanctuary, choose danger, but don’t choose the girl that always leaves Don’t choose the girl that always leaves True companion, true misfit, true to life or death’s right hand man Guess I never had you figured, I was just a pawn in your plan But just remember what I tell you, when it comes down we all have to pay Makes no difference if you’re a giver or taker, the Lord has his hand on you Amy The Lord has his hand on you Amy

Well don't you cry for me boys, don't you cry for me I'm where I ought to be for what I've done Never been at peace lord, I've never been at peace To you I must release my tainted soul Go howling at that moon boys, go howling at that moon He's only mocking you with truth untold Forever roam this land boys, forever roam this land And crush the stones to sand, with all your rage Been running all my days lord, been running all my days With eyes so cut and crazed, chasing you Been running all my days, running all my days So don't you cry for me boys, don't you cry for me I'm where I ought to be for what I've done

Fire 03:24
Baby put your hand in mine and drench it with your graveyard wine I can't see me loving anybody but you Hollow out my eyes and ears and leave room for me to disappear My great escape from this life is within you He's gonna take me right down to the wire Watch my baby go now. he's on fire He's gonna take me right down to the wire Watch my baby go now he's on fire Had years of derelict dreams and dread You raise the roof I'll raise the dead Shake them from the gutter to the sky Well I seek no evil I sew no seeds My hand's as regal as can be I'll swim your ocean 'til it runs bone dry He's gonna take me right down to the wire Watch my baby go now, he's on fire yeah He's gonna take me right down to the wire Watch my baby go now he's on fire

String lines and broken binds, the joy of silence all confined in her mind And the stars align Hope is here, hope is far, skimmin’ stones and wrecking cars And darlin’, we’re right on time Right on time So grasp the wings of Emperor Night, the stowaways must hold on tight We marvel at all we see And the songs of shadows we’ll listen to Break my bones use them for flutes And darlin’, we’re right on time Right on Time So curse the country, curse the years, curse the things you hold so dear Command the seas to engulf them all And once your soul is clean to shine, I’ll be there, end of the line And darlin’, we’re right on time Right on time
