about

this was the second song we wrote together. glenn has this amazing knack of coming up with song titles real quick during the writing stages. he turned around about half way through & said 'that'd be a great name for a band'... the rest is history.

lyrics

kerosene
(bidmead/buchanan)

he’s pouring kerosene
while she takes the long way home
he once thought he had a dream
her nightmare’s just begun

he strikes that match alight
and she’s walking faster now
their future’s up in smoke
the past comes crumbling down

and he keeps walking right into the same trap
he ain’t looking left or right
she thought love was falling into her lap
threw it away with kerosene

her heart has turned to stone
she blames him for everything
there’s no love to call her own
he’s clipping angel’s wings

while her hands are digging dirt
his fingers are in the till
there’s no symptom ain’t no cure
it’s such a bitter pill

chorus

there’s no smoke (no smoke) without no fire
there’s no love (no love) with no desire

they keep walking right into the same trap
he ain’t looking left or right
she thought love was falling into her lap
win or lose in black and white

they keep walking but they ain’t talking
they thought love was win or lose
