listen



watch “another log in the fire”

 

lyrics

monday afternoon is late night
her eyes have barely shut since friday’s dawn

she says “drink your drink, i’ll take you home,
and show you how to have a good time
we can listen to marvin gaye and get it on.

“don’t tell me you’re rich, don’t tell me you’re poor
don’t push me away, don’t ask me for more,
just tell me you love me
and put another log in the fire.

“don’t try to be cool, like a man of the world
you can show me your kids, i’m a daddy’s girl
just tell me you love me
and put another log in the fire”

she hangs up a coat, slips off some shoes, unties a tie
and drops his pants for a snap inspection

she says, “you can take your conscience,
and put it right back in your wallet,
i need friction, not protection.

“don’t push it too fast, don’t shake it too slow
don’t pay no mind to that rash, give me go man go
just tell me you love me
and put another log in the fire.

“don’t tell me you’ve come, don’t tell me you’ve gone
here I am wide awake, so alive and alone
just tell me you love me
and put another log in the fire”

on top of the world, insight and desire
the drinks go down, but she can’t get higher,
it’s “one, two, three, four, five” she can’t keep count

she needs someone to share the rush of the ride
life is full when there’s something inside
she’s had one, two, three, four, five
and that’s just friday night
once more will make things right.

clothes long gone, face down in the grass
miles from home, a pain in the ass
lights are spinning red and blue
here’s the whole wide world and there’s you

the bitter shame, time to feel what you feel,
there’s no more novacaine
i see you’ve met rock bottom
well this here’s emily jane

“don’t like you cleaning me up,
don’t want you tying me down,
don’t need a shot in the arm,
you know i won’t make a sound
just tell me you love me
and put another log in the fire.

“don’t tell me i’m home,
we all know that i’m not
don’t take it away,
it’s all that i got
just tell me you love me
and put another log in the fire.

“just tell me you love me
and add another voice to the choir.

“just tell me you love me
won’t someone tell me they love me
just tell me you love me
and i’ll call you a liar.”
