Cool Fire Water

Cool Fire Water ©

Jesse’s drinking and talking wild again

beating out her life in dim lit bars and then –

She’s walking home alone to sleep gin dreams in vain

who’s gonna hold her in the morning

oh but then its sweet at night withy drink and company

a pack of cigarettes and money for a round or two


Give me that cool fire water –

I don’t wanna be alone pour me another one

Cool fire water in you i feel at home

Have you ever told a stranger with warm eyes and time to spare

the deepest secrets of your soul?

On her island of a table a bottle and two stools

Jesse’s feeling safety for an hour or two

embraced in bar room smoke low lights and drinking talk

Don’t think about those cold morning grey urban blues


Cool fire water
