Cole, Lloyd - Forest Fire Lyrics




She crossed herself as she put on her things
She has promised once before not to live this way
If she don't calm down she will burn herself out
Like a forest fire well doesn't that make you smile

If you don't slow down I swear that I'll come round
And mess up your place let's go for a spin
They say we shouldn't even know each other
And that we'll be undone
Don't it make you smile like a forest fire

I believe in love... I'll believe in anything
That's going to get me what I want and get me off my knees
And then we'll burn your house down
Don't it feel so good?
There's a forest fire every time we get together

We're going to pick you up - put you down
Rip you up and spin you round
Just like we said we would
Because we're a forest fire
Believe we be - we'll tear this place down

If we get caught in this wind then we could burn the ocean
If we get caught in this scene we're going to be undone
It's just a simple metaphor it's for a burning love
Don't it make you smile like a forest fire?

    Power to the People

    Dora heino
    Great comment. I saw him live last night and his ‘textures’ and backing were almost incredible. All on acoustic. Keyboard parts the lot!

    what about this lyrics

    She crossed herself as she put on her things
    She has promised once before not to live this way
    If she don't calm down she will burn herself out
    Like a forest fire, well doesn't that make you smile

    If you don't slow down, I swear that I'll come round
    And mess up your place, let's go for a spin
    They say we shouldn't even know each other
    And that we'll be undone
    Don't it make you smile like a forest fire

    I believe in love, I'll believe in anything
    That's gonna get me what I want and get me off my knees
    Then we'll burn your house down, don't it feel so good
    There's a forest fire every time we get together

    Hey pick you up, put you down
    Rip you up and spin you round
    Just like we said we would
    'Cause we're a forest fire
    Believe you me, we'll tear this place down

    If we get caught in this wind, then we could burn the ocean
    If we get caught in this scene, we're gonna be undone
    It's just a simple metaphor
    It's for a burning love
    Don't it make you smile like a forest fire

  54. Tania Daniels

  65. Scottorum Malleus

    rattlesnakes is a mighty album

    Nathalie Nowostawski

    Scottorum Malleus i'm French! and i love ..

  66. Stephen Watt

    I Love the Guitar on this track - The solo at the end and the sound is just sublime.

    Lost in Life

    Love the guitars too : they increase and amplify the sound for the final climax.

    David Söderlund

    Yeah the prod is perfect.

    MusClas

    The original goes more than a minute longer into that. A pity they cut that in the clip.

    arthur bateau

    King Crimson. ;-)

    octone75

    Same here, the guitar at the end give me shivering sensations

  67. Stephen Watt

    Bought this album when it came out - Just seen this video for the first time - WOW. Brilliant track from a brilliant album.

    Alex debico

    me, it was a perfect album. Never had had an album that I loved all the songs through. that was the case of Rattlesnakes; Loved this song, was singing it today in the car in Brazil and now seing the video for the very first time after 20 years ! lol

  68. SMILEMEDIAGROUP

    Aother Scottish? singer, who has Orb's, that fly round him ;-)

    Craig Welsh

    eh, Lloyd isn't Scottish. He did live in Glasgow for a while though.

    Power to the People

    Not Scottish but formed from times in Glasgow with Scottish members. Definitely has ( or helped shape) the ‘Glasgow sound’ of the era for me though. Esp. in this track! The upper echelon of pop these guys.

  69. Taliesin Rees

    Reminds one that 80s music wasn't a complete waste of time.

    Rudolf Trost

    @TheClassOfLVG16
    Good choices, but they are among the few....

    _quantocking

    Rudolf Trost maybe I'm biased because I'm only 18 and I did not experience the 80's first hand but there are so many brilliant and influential artists from the 80s, I'd say there's a lot more than a few

    Rudolf Trost

    @TheClassOfLVG16
    And your entitled to our opinion, but as the late great Muhammad Ali once said, "A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.”
    I'm close to 60 now (but with a young mindset), and I realize every day how true those words are.

    _quantocking

    Rudolf Trost and you're entitled to yours, what do you think has been the best decade for music out of curiosity?

    SCOT FOXX

    'Reminds one' WTF! These types of posts show how dull some people are. SMFH

  70. Taliesin Rees

    Reminds one that 80s music wasn't a complete waste of time.

  71. Sandro Souza

  72. cafedeltransit
