St. Elmo's Fire (Radio) Lyrics

Appears on:

Uilab - Fires

Lyrics

Brown eyes and I were tired
We had walked and we had scrambled
Through the moors and through the briars
Through the endless blue meanders.
In the blue August moon,
In the cool August moon.

Over the nights and through the fires
We went surging down the wires,
Through the towns and on the highways,
Through the storms in all their thundering.
In the blue August moon,
In the cool August moon.

Then we rested in a desert
Where the bones were were white as teeth, sir
And we saw St. Elmo's Fire
Spitting ions in the ether.
In the blue August moon,
In the cool August moon.
