lyrics

Now the sun is splitting shadows
as it pours through the blinds
and the room is suddenly a shade of gold
I can see your face lie on its side
a strand of hair across your eye
you flower in the early morning glow

I know
I've got to bring the fire home

now the evening's full of chemicals
and rolling jokes with strangers
I find my arms tied up with the night
I could fill my life with spectacle
and slow dance with the shadows
and give confession to a streetlight

I know
I've got to bring the fire home

oh that day
a caveman came
and brought home a little hot dancing flame
oh my my, oh yes yes
that was the day
the night took a holiday
a long long holiday
til sunrise

now the moon is splitting shadows
as it pours through the streets
these early morning hours feel alone
I can see your face lie on its side
a strand of hair across your eye
you flower in the early morning glow
