lyrics

Tell me have I fallen out of favour with you too many times?
Was I careless with your affection?
I know I've been unkind, when kindness was all
You gave me and asked for in return.

But I still recall standing by your side
In a barley field, and the wind spinning
Patterns around us, the gorse blazing
Wild across the hillside and time
Could hardly contain us.

But since you strayed from my side
There's a fire I've been kindling for you.
And no fear could divide my intentions so girl don't be shy,
Feel the fire I'm kindling.

Tell me have you fallen into the arms of a man
Who keeps you safe, and does he offer
His love like milk and honey?
Is he all your mind, and in the night
Have you stilled seconds together?

But since you strayed from my side
There's a fire I've been kindling for you.
And no force could divide my intentions so girl don't be shy,
Feel the fire I'm kindling.

Must I spend my time romancing your ghost?
Cradling frayed images of when we were close.
