Song Bio: Fire

Being in my twenties, fresh in the music scene and fresh to the Sunset Strip, I was honestly perplexed by an entire population of 'kids' who would do anything to be noticed, be part of the crowd. Even those who appeared to be the center of the Sunset Strip 'universe' were starving to fit in. At some point after weeks or months of rolling from clubs to apartments and bungalow's, following the endless party, an emptiness would appear in their eyes. No real connection could be made. The young ladies, often immigrants from the midwest or small towns, could become the biggest enigma. 'I don't give a fuck' became their mantra. They were 'on fire' and would burn if you got too close. I imagined somewhere a Mom and Dad losing sleep and waiting for their little princess to come home. A pillar of ash, but still alive.



Fire

Lyrics


Water keeps on fallin'

Young girl keeps on bawlin'

She don't know the dif-frence

Between lovin' and desire


She's on fire

and she don't care if you love her

She's on fire

and she's younger than you think

She's on fire

and she's lookin' for another

She's on fire

Momma's little baby has taken to the street


Stranded in the night time

Hunger in her eyes

Ground still wet from rainfall

She finds a local bar


Chin up as she enters

She turns a head or two

And with her face, her charisma

She finds someone she can do


She's on fire

and she don't care if you love her

She's on fire

and she's younger than you think

She's on fire

and she's lookin' for another

She's on fire

Momma's little baby has taken to the street


She's certainly good looking She wears the finest clothes

Where'd the money go to

Did she do it up her nose?


She wants to get acquainted

Maybe spend the night

She wants to remain faceless

She asks you for a light
