Stiff Little Fingers – Tinderbox lyrics

Then the rain came down

And your life's a train
And washed all hope away



But it only goes one way

What about the times when you were happy
Balance them against the times you're sad

Was there once a time when you felt lucky

Or do you regret the times you've had



Chorus:
Cos sometimes I feel



I live in a tinderbox
And just one spark

Sets the whole thing off


And sometimes I see
The light die within me

And the flame go out

Leave me in the dark



When your world's a mess

And imbecility gets you down

When you can't accept
The stupidity that's around




What about the times when you were focused

What about the times you know who you are

Do you find it hard containing your emotions
Do you find it hard to just get out the door




I'm hangin' in you're hangin' on (x2)
