Hearts of Fire

Whispering kisses to the wind
on a vague and sketchy night
hearts of fire are gravedancing
innocence wears a silken dress of white
experience a suit of spades
aces buried in his hand
she has a complex pretzel beauty he yearns to understand

And the promises of the past come back to stare you in the face
a dim lightbulb of youth you can never replace
hearts of fire drunk on romancing
the air is a swirl of nervousness and perfume
the aftershave armor falls away
the moment she walks into the room
the stars are cherubs coming out to play
lovers promise to run forever inside each other and never tire
hearts of fire
hearts waltzing delicately across the wire
of years
that finds me wading through happy tears
you are near
hearts of fire burning on and on till after the sun disappears

Still whispering kisses to the wind
under a vague and sketchy moon  
hearts of fire are gravedancing
innocence wears a tattered dress of blue
experience a suit of hearts
jokers bleeding in his hand
she has an indescribable beauty he burns to understand
someday he will understand
someday...

Hearts of fire burning on and on till after the sun disappears

This is a great line amongst the many, Zach.

You did a great job here of capturing the chemistry of the fire. Excellent read. ~L
