They Light Fires – Written May 2000 (Aged 25)

They Light Fires

they light fires
fires in places which are cold
fires n the hallway
fires in your soul
they lights fires
warm fires that bring people together
which bring people in from the cold
they light fires
they light them for me
and i am prompted to think
about who they really are
they light fires
and those fires, they can been seen from afar

James Garratt – May 2000
