Someone Keeps Putting Wood on the Fire – Sunday 18th October 1998

Someone Keeps Putting Wood on the Fire

i have tried to give you up
i have, i have really tried
and to those i have told i have
i am sorry, i have lied
perhaps by lying to them
i am just trying to convince myself
i cannot control these feelings
i just cannot turn them on and off
if only i could…
i thought the fire would have died
someone must keep adding wood
i have lied,
when i said i did not want you anymore
i have tried, i have really tried
but i just can’t seem to close that door
even now, i want you
just to hear your voice
i would make things at least half right
as i think of you in the dark
i know you would provide some light
i should be giving you up
i have tired, i have really tried
but i have spent so long with you
feelings have grown deep inside
