playin’ with fire

I’m playin’ with fire

dancin’ ever closer

stayin’ just out of reach

I’m playin’ with fire

turning back the clock

in my mind and heart

and remembering

I’m playin’ with fire

dredging up memories

best left buried deep

I’m playin’ with fire

hopin’ not to get burned

or burn another

I’m playin’ with fire

red, orange, yellow

bright blue glow

of the flame

as I stare


by what I see

I’m playin’ with fire

the danger attracts

I admit it

my rebellious side

isn’t quashed


I’m playin’ with fire

drawn like a moth

to a flame

with memories

of you


Got too close

for just a moment

while I was

playin’ with fire
