Lyrics
So let me hammer this point home
I see us all as lonely fires
That have burned alive as long as we remember

Well, like all fires and all sunsets
We all burn in different ways
You are a vast explosion and I am the embers

And though your flames are quick and mean
They will not last the year
But expire like a sudden falling star

That only nightingales had seen before
Migrating to sudden jungles
And in this way you will come find me in December

He said he'd like to move to Nashville
To master the guitar
Where he would live a single day
The way I live a single year

He covered his body in mud
Went hunting for the sun
Then went swimming in the lake of holy water

Oh, you are too hot for me
I am too slow for you
You are a vast explosion and I'm the embers

You need the one who slowly burns
And burns to stay alive and
In this way you will come find me in December

So let me hammer this point home
I see us all as lonely fires
That have burned alive as long as we remember

But like all sacrificial virgins
We all burn in different ways
You are a vast explosion and I'm the embers

And though your flames are quick and mean
They will not last the year
But expire like a sudden shooting star

That only nightingales had seen before
Transforming into bluebirds and
In this way you will come find me in December
