lyrics

I know it's hard to understand though I've explained it all before
It was not like me to be the one to leave things on the floor
Cause I picked up most things you knocked out of my hand
I was tired of bending over at your commands

You see that every time I woke up I thought of how I could escape
That constant criticism and emotional arrays
When confronted with the truth of it you played the victim's part
That's why you cannot trust that woman's heart

For all those who are wondering how I could be that hard
Let's have a conversation and a drink in my backyard
If forgiveness fuels the fire of unconditioned love
Then fire it has no proof to have fear of

The fire was blazing hot
Though I tried my love was not
The train was moving in all directions
The two of us had no connections
Even though I tried my best
I was blind to what came next
The fire burned with a heavy cost
But all the fear would soon be lost

There's another kind of holy fire that reigns down from above
It likes to burn down houses and wipe out condemned love
When a house has stood divided divided it must fall
So there ain't no damned good reason to fear at all
No there ain't no damned good reason to fear the fire no not at all
