Fleeting Embers

from by Dan Florio

lyrics

The waves crawl in and grab at the shore
Only to recede
Tinder is piled in a circle of stones
In a clearing in the reeds

The flicker of a match
Sheds the light
And cuts through the black
The smoke spreads and climbs
Seeping into the night

Feel the nice warm firewood
In the cold, cold air
Feel the nice warm firewood
In the cold, cold air

Soft spoken strangers sit around the flames
To soothe their shaking hands
Laughing, joking about yesterdays
While kicking at the sand

Let’s stay here for a while
Pass the time
And soak in the sights
The faint glow stretches wide
Seeping into the night

Feel the nice warm firewood
In the cold, cold air
Feel the nice warm firewood
In the cold, cold air

Bright burning embers float to the sky
Before they disappear
The white blaze fades as time goes by
And the smoke begins to clear

Some waking insects crawl
And watch it all
While others take flight
And we hear the cricket calls
Seeping into the night
