Lucero - A City On Fire Lyrics



Well it looks like the storm has come
But it’s the ash in the sky
All the bridges are burning down
All the wells are running dry
In a city built on a tinder box
A spark becomes a flame
And the bridge that we need to cross
It’s coming down either way

And we’re lost in the night
In the smoke and the neon
In the heart of a city on fire

Flames
Light the sky
Ashes fall like rain
In the firelight
False fronts burn away
Smoke and cinder rise
Redemption in the flame
A city on fire
And in the fire is remade

Above the streets a moon
Like a bucket full of blood
They try to put the lid back on but
This is where it all ends up
The preachers got at least one thing right
We’re all sinners somehow
What will all of us sinners do
After the fires go out

And we’re lost in the night
In the smoke and the neon
And the fire kicks up in the wind

Flames
Light the sky
Ashes fall like rain
In the firelight
False fronts burn away
Smoke and cinder rise
Redemption in the flame
A city on fire
And in the fire is remade
