fire inside
(T. Downing)

I never thought you'd run away like that
I always thought we'd be together
I never dreamed it could hurt so much
I always thought I'd take it better
you always seemed to be on top of the world
I never guessed that you were lying
but now you're gone and living in the city
while I sit here crying

and the light in your eyes
makes a circle in my mind
and the thoughts run rampant
make me lose control every time

baby i know you can give me a smile
although it's been such a long long time
come back and hold me, just for awhile
you're playing with fire inside

I never thought I'd see you here again
I never thought I'd be here either
I bet you want me to apologize
but I'm still waiting for the same from you


from Angry Odin, released August 10, 1993
