BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN lyrics - Just Like Fire Would

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
"Just Like Fire Would"

[Originally by The Saints]

One night in a motel room
Eyes cast like steel
I drank the wine they had left on my table
Knew the morning was too far

I smoked my last cigarette
Stay only to defy
The night was dark and the land is cold
It's frozen right to the bone

And just like fire would, I burn
Just like fire would
Just like fire would, I burn up

Five hundred miles I have gone today
Tomorrow five hundred more
Outside my window the world passes by
It's stranger than a dream

Just like fire would, I burn
Just like fire would
Just like fire would, I burn up

I go to work and I earn my pay load
The sweat falls to the ground
I see you now but we may never meet, child
The ice is hanging over the door

One night in a motel room
Eyes cast like steel
I drank the wine they had left on my table
I knew the morning was too far

Just like fire would, I burn
Just like fire would
Just like fire would, I burn up

Just like fire would, I burn
Just like fire would
Just like fire would, I burn up
Come on!
