Love like fire

image

She said she wants a love like fire.
I said love warms a cold heart
Lightens your soul and heals your heart
If you find a love like that
Kindle it with your soul
Hold it close to your heart

She said she wants a love like fire
I said love rages like a devil’s tongue
Cools a warm heart and level forests
If you find a love like that
Feed it with water, smother it with cotton
Run like a cheetah
A love that rages and burn
Would eat you up and
Spit you into the the air
So run run run.

She said I want a love like fire
I said love is the CPR to a dead heart
The warm body on a winter night
The spinner of the dish called heart
If you find a love like this
Feed with with your life
Engrave it on your heart
Hold it tight to your bosom
This love would give you life

    To hear these words in the midnight hour. Would make a man beg for mercy and more.
