By Your Fire (from the Archives - 2018)

The man said to me, "Boy, when you grow up, what is it you want to be?"                           
I said, "Sir, I haven't quite decided yet, if it's Jack Kerouac or Ray Davies."                           
It’s so hard to make it through this cold and crooked world                                        
The same thing is true for every boy, and for every girl                                                 
 
But I know this one thing for sure                                                                                       
I want to warm myself by her fire forevermore                                                                
 
How can I turn the world upside down when I can't even get out of bed?               
How can I set the night on fire when it's always raining here in my head?                             
It’s so hard to make it through this cold and crooked world                                        
Whether you’re a skinny little boy or a curly headed little girl                                     
 
But I know this one thing for sure                                                                                       
I want to warm myself by her fire forevermore                                                                
 
Your arms are where I belong                                                                                               
Yours is my only song                                                                                                              
And when I’m lost and alone                                                                                                 
You’re the only one who can always call me home                                                         
 
And I know this one thing for sure                                                                                       
I want to warm myself by your fire forevermore                                                              
I want to walk in your kitchen door
Sit right down there on the floor                                                                                    
And warm myself at your fire forevermore
