lyrics

"The sky is on fire!" you yell from afar. The sky is not on fire, it's just a little charred from the great big star. I see a little gold falling through to the snow. Out on the smallest stones, you make a little noise as you come and go. How far you gonna go down this long grey scar? I really think you should now how glad I'm gonna be at this river's dying hour. The sky is not on fire. The sky is not on fire. The sky is not on fire, it just a little charred from the great big star. I see you on the horizon with your face to the star. And your bright red lips are craning at the neck to kiss the great star. But you kiss only sky. And you kiss only rain. And you curse the great star for pulling you this far and you still feel the same. How far you gonna go down this long grey scar? I really think you should now how glad I'm gonna be at this river's dying hour. The sky is not on fire. The sky is not on fire. The sky is not on fire, it just a little charred from the great big star. "The sky is on fire!" you yell from afar. The sky is not on fire, it's just a little charred from the great big star. The sky is not on fire. (It's only a star) The sky is not on fire. (It's only a star) The sky is not on fire, (It's only a star) The sky is not on fire. (It's only a star) The sky is not on fire.
