Bonfire

Bonfire

Josh Ritter

You got a lot of lovers with star-crossed wrists
They keep a candle burning on the corner you kissed.
One day I might die, until then there's too much to do
But I'll keep a bonfire for you.

I've seen the pretty boys that you're keeping around
I know how it goes, I've got a girl in town.
And she likes me enough to do what I like to do.
But, I'll keep a bonfire for you.

Let the other lovers talk about who carries the torch
Let them talk about the beauty that they carry it for
Let the other lovers talk about who got what
And who got burned and who got cut

I'll be in the orchard when you get tired
Day after day of the shouts from the choir
Eating the apples and eating the peaches, too
And waiting by my bonfire for you.

In the dark anybody will do for love
But you're the only one I want when the sun comes up
No burning ball of fire set in the sky will do
Next to my bonfire for you.

Let the other lovers talk about who carries the torch
Let them talk about the beauty that they carry it for
Let the other lovers talk about who got what
And who got burned and who got cut

I need a little motion, need a little relief
I get a little lonely at the end of the week
And I want it so bad and if you want it so bad, too
I'll be over here with my bonfire for you.

You got a lot of lovers with star-crossed wrists
They keep a candle burning on the corner you kissed.
One day I might die, until then there's too much to do
But I'll keep a bonfire for you.
