Blood and Fire


by Amy Ray
I:	A - - - / G - - - / D - - - /     / x4 //

Well I have spent nights with matches and knives
Leaning over ledges only two flights up
Cutting my heart, burning my soul, with nothing left to hold
Nothing left, but blood and fire
You have spent nights thinking of me, missing my arms but you needed to leave
Leaving my cuts, leaving my burns, hoping I'd learn

A - - - / G - - - / D - - - /     // (6x)

 C:	But blood and fire are too much for these restless arms to hold
And my nights of desire, they're calling me, back to your fold
And I'm calling you, calling you, from ten thousand miles away
Won't you wet my fire with your love, babe

G - - - / D - - - / A - - - /    // (4x)

I am looking for someone who can take as much as I give
And I'll give back as much as I need, y'know and they still have the will to live
'Cause I am intense, I am in need, I am in pain, I am in love
But I feel forsaken, you know like the things I, I gave away

 C:	And blood and fire are too much for these restless arms to hold
And my nights of desire, they're calling me, back to your fold
And I'm calling you, calling you, from ten thousand miles away
Won't you wet my fire with your love, babe

 v:	I am intense, I'm in need, I'm in pain, I'm in love
I am intense, I am in need, I am in pain, I am in love
I am intense, I am in need, I am in pain, I am in love

And blood and fire are too much for these restless arms to hold
And my nights of desire, they're calling me, back to your fold
And I'm calling you, calling you, from ten thousand miles away
Won't you wet my fire with your love, babe

 T:	Won't you wet my fire with your love, baby, hold me
Wet my fire with your love
