lyrics

There was a woman here
With steel behind her eyes
With fire in her heart
There was a woman
With my soul between her teeth
My conscience come alive

But now I'm here with this button beneath my hands
And none of you seem red
None of you seem real

My Fire Flower Heart
Would still my hand
If only she was here
My Fire Flower Heart
Was all my world
And now she's disappeared

There was a reason once
Before the world turned grey
Before the world turned old
There was a reason once
And they crushed it in their jaws
They closed in their traps

But now I'm here with this button beneath my hands
And none of you seem red
None of you seem real

My Fire Flower Heart
Would still my hand
If only she was here
My Fire Flower Heart
Was all my world
And now she's disappeared

What would she say?
What would she do?
Would she say let all them should burn, all these worthless fools?

My Fire Flower Heart
Would still my hand
If only she was here
My Fire Flower Heart
Was all my world
And now she's disappeared
