Angel Olsen White Fire Lyrics

Everything is tragic

It all just falls apart

But when I look into your eyes

It pieces up my heart

If I only had an answer

To put it all to bed

I wish sometimes I could take back

Every word I’ve said

I walk back in the night alone

Got caught up in my song

Forgot where I was sleeping

None of the lights were on

I heard my mother thinking me right back into my birth

I laughed so loud inside myself it all began to hurt

So I turned on a picture show

I disappeared the lines

As memories came flooding in

The tears blew out my eyes

I see an elevator

A moment I am above

I look for you or someone

Who can still remind me of

The tight grip and the sun lick

And the calm way of all things summer

When it’s all here

And it’s all new

And you’re not hungover

Fierce and light and young

Fierce and light and young

When you don’t know that you’re wrong

Or just how wrong you are

My feet are always heavy

As I inch toward the door

I thought we’d leave this for ourselves a hundred times before

But I guess we’re always leaving even when we look the same

And it eases me somehow to know that even this will change

If you’ve still got some light in you then go before it’s gone

Burn your fire for no witness it’s the only way it’s done

Fierce and light and young

Fierce and light and young

Hit the ground and run

Hit the ground and run
