Put your words into the fire
Watch them burn, your heart's desires
Rise up in the air
In a cloud of silt and smoke and dust
Fade into the night
It's a comforting feeling with you at my side

Let me shake your honest hands
I'll sit down beside you now
Lean our heavy hands
On the weight of the things that I left unside
Don't worry about it now
Cause in the morning it'll all be ashes on the ground

So what's been on your mind

Eatin' you inside

Takin' all of your time

On this warm summer night
Put your words down in the fire

We were down on sandy beach
All night talking to your mouth's words
Tell me where you would like to be
Tonight don't be afraid to dream
Lean on the fire for a while
Cause in the morning it'll all be ashes on the ground

So what's been on your mind

Eatin' you inside

Takin' all of your time

On this warm summer night
Put those words down in the fire
