Love & Fire

Did she ever know she was their shining star?
Did she ever know their world spun around her?
Late afternoon behind the bedroom door they’d hear her crying and never knew what for
Come calm the children Daddy, Mama’s breaking down

Love and fire, fire and love
Sometimes a dragon, sometimes a dove
Oh, Jesus, the storm’s rolling through
Every child needs their mother
Their mother needs you

She always said God loves the broken ones.
She always said, he calls them his own
But on those dark days the voices would swell
She’d feel the pull of heaven. It scared them like hell
Come calm the children Daddy, Mama’s breaking down

Love and fire, fire and love
Sometimes a dragon, sometimes a dove
Oh Mary, Queen of the May
Come comfort their mother. Don’t let the dark take her away.

Lullabies and goodnight prayers. Kisses brushing back their hair.
Turn out the light
Debussy’s arpeggio ringing out into the night
She taught ‘em to dance. She taught ‘em to sing
Said it don’t mean nothing if it ain’t got that swing. Mmmm.

Love and fire, fire and love
I wish that old dragon could have saved that little dove
Did somebody somewhere try to break you in two?
Every child needs protection Mama. Who protected you?
