Life In Song

Fireworks

Despite trying hard to make the evening work Mark felt like he got no where.
Steph had come home in a bad mood, what set her off he didn’t know and she wouldn’t say.
He tried, god knows he tried to get her to talk but each and every time he spoke she only answered in three word sentences.
At first she didn’t seem pissed off with him but as the evening went on and it got closer to a time when Mark needed to leave for work the tide seemed to turn to him being the problem.
Everything seemed to be his fault.
The words were not harsh, they were not venomous they were just angry, some were even clumsy.
By the time he was in the car and on his way to work Mark had no idea what was going on.

Fireworks, fireworks
There’s gonna be fireworks
If you keep on pushing
Keep on pushing
There’ll be fireworks
Lose control, no control
I can’t help it, I’ve got no control
While you keep on touching
Keep on touching
Gonna lose control

I’m not sure long I can keep defusing the fireworks, Mark thought as he traversed the dark side streets headed for the depot.
The fireworks aren’t even aimed at me but unless they misfire I’m going to be the one running from them.
I wish I could loose control, I wish I could touch, dammit if I did touch I’d loose control like she’s never known before.
Just one night to let me show her how much she means to me, there will be a different kind of fireworks if she just gives me one night.

And if you take a match
Then strike
And ignite it
You’ll never see another show like this one
It nearly knocked me out
Nearly knocked me out
Better keep your distance from the
Fireworks
Fireworks
I’ll show you how the fire works
While it burns
While it burns
The fireworks, are on you

See now the guy knows what I mean.
Steph baby let me strike the match.
Hell I’ll let you strike it, just let me show you how the fire works.
We’re not talking sky rockets at night, although depending on the time it could be an afternoon delight.
The fireworks you bring home are always set to explode in our face.
Let me show you how to make them burn, make them burn long and make them light up the bedroom.
Come on baby just give me the chance.

hr2

No regrets, no regrets
There’s gonna be no regrets
Cause it was what you wanted
What you needed
Now there’s no regrets

You’re surprised
So wide-eyed
You act as if you’re so surprised
You didn’t think I’d mean it
Now you’ve seen it
And you’re so surprised

And if you take a match
Then strike
And ignite it
Never gonna put me out

I promise you there wont be no regrets, just let me ignite the fireworks.
I know if you just let it happen I can ensure there is no regrets.
For three hours let your inhibitions go and let me show you how the fire works.
I’d rather you look surprised than doubtful
Is it doubt I can’t live up to it or the doubt you can’t let yourself be free for that long?
Go on prove me wrong, let me show you how the fire works.

Fireworks
Fireworks
I’ll show you how the fire works
While it burns
While it burns
The fireworks, are on you

Fireworks
Fireworks
I’ll show you how the fire works
While it burns
While it burns
The fireworks, are on you

Let me show you how the fire works baby!

Mark drove on into the night singing the chorus hopeful for change.
Driven on by the only positive thing to have happened since he woke up at 6pm
The fact that Steph had actually said “Goodbye, drive safe, see you in the morning.” as he walked out the door.
