Christmas In Flames – “Firewood”

All right, my hearing’s not the finest, so when I heard Katie Duff singing “Firework” by Katy Perry at the annual Mainelli-Duff Christmas party, I had to have a rewrite, and dedicate it to her:

“Firewood”

for Katie Duffy

Do you ever feel like a piece of wood,

Feeling all the strain, of being lit again?

Do you ever feel, feel so flammable

Like one little spark, makes you combustible?

Do you ever feel already charred so deep?

Six feet under coal, but no one seems to sear a thing

Do you know that there’s still a match for you

‘Cause there’s a spark in you?

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine,

Just own the night like a Costco buy

‘Cause baby, you are firewood,

Come on, you don’t blaze so good

You don’t burn so high -igh -igh

As you glow across the sky –y -y

‘Cause baby, you are firewood

Come on, you’re a waste of space

Inside a furnace -nace -nace

As you glow across the sky –y -y

‘Cause baby, you are firewood

Come on, you don’t blaze so high

You should want to die –ie -ie

As you glow across the sky –y –y…
