about

Breaking up and moving out inspires fantasies of setting fire to an apartment, a life, a dream of love. This song was written in the aftermath of a major loss in my life and expresses the dissillusionment that comes with starting over.

lyrics

Where’s the Fire?
Lizzy Yoder 2004©

I got some matches
I dream of ashes
I’m gonna go buy ker-o-sine
Let’s get together and burn my apartment down

Broke my glasses
Cut my losses
I’m feeling so damn mean
Well, It's been a long time and you know I've been saving up

You gotta go and heat it up
You've got to know to let it cool
You gotta go and let it flow
Oh, you've gotta go and let it, let it go
You gotta watch the embers, don’t try and remember, long, long time ago

Where you going?
Why you leaving?
I never said that we were done
I’m only just beginning to have some fun

Forget the fire,
Forget the liquor
Hey this is quicker, I own a knife
Let’s carve our selves a very beautiful life

We can use all the lonely wood,
We can use all the lonely stones,
We can be simple like we should,
Oh, we can use all the lonely, lonely stones
We can be simple like we should no lights or telephones

No lights or telephones

I think it’s just a vision of a very bad decision
That I never made, that I never made
I think it’s just a prison of a very bad religion
That I will escape, that I will escape
I think it’s just a vision of a very bad decision
That I never made, that I never made
I think it’s just a vision of a life that hasn't risen
That I never made
A long long time ago

Where’s the fire
My gun for hire?
Where you going?
Why you leaving?
I own a knife
Carve us a life
Carve me, very beautiful

Oh, you gotta go and heat it up
You gotta know to let it cool
You gotta know to let it flow
Oh you gotta go and let it, let it go
You gotta watch the embers, don’t try and remember,
Long, long time ago

about

Lizzy Yoder New York, New York

My name is Lizzy Yoder and I write and sing songs that are sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and sometimes deep. Yeah, I'm a pretty deep thinker. But I like to dance! This little EP took a long time to make it to shore. I will be adding more "charms" to this bracelet in the near future, but for the time being, please enjoy these three songs. ... more
