Lyrics:

Too Close to Your Fire by Robert G. Hunter

I thought I could handle it babe
But didn’t know I’d feel this way
And now you’re telling me
You’re leaving today
Make that clock stand still
It’s flashing me this sunburn chill
I’m too close to your fire

Last night I realized
I’m way over my head
But I’d rather stay here and pay the price
Than leave you now instead
I’m ‘bout to break a sweat and
Soaking wet melt into the
Sun set of your fire

Too close to her fire
How can I deny her
So close to her fire
Gonna lose myself to her fire
Way too close to her fire
Such a high price for desire

So I hardly trust myself
To have another taste
But your loving is so good
Can’t let it go to waste
When your face is
Almost erased
I’ll still feel a trace of your fire

So close to her fire
But it’s time to deny her
This close to her fire
I’ll lose myself to her fire
High price for desire
Too close to her fire

Heartful, mindful Americana
