LYRICS
Smoke in the air, it felt like Christmas Awoke to a day deceptively dangerous
Scenes from the evening flickered round like an ardent moth being drawn to candlelight
Say a classic phrase, an eyebrow raised
Oh fire brigade

Raised me right, but they never taught me the finer points of fire safety
We let a spark fly, oh so carelessly into the dead leaves of some verdant history
So though it glowed we never knowed
We didn't know

I have seen you smile and now that I've seen you smile
I just want to make you
Smile

Close as matchsticks, a crowded kitchen we'd been acquainted, but you hadn't mentioned
You know how to soft-shoe, you hate romance But you fall hard for poetry and soft hands
I lied Took your side When you decried
The scene inside

Took to the street when the gin ran dry Walked to your favorite bar but didn't go inside
At the cemetery, you tapped away the cold till I reminded you of the last bus home
I sighed When you'd gone by I just sighed
When you went by you were so bright You went by I was on
Fire

I have seen you smile and now that I've seen you smile
I just want to make you
Smile

Raised me right, but they never taught me the finer points of fire safety
You let a spark fly, oh so carelessly and now the flames are catching inside of me

about

Little Cinema New York

We're an indie pop band that lives between Brooklyn and Austin. We love old books, balmy weather, star charts and Basquiat. Our spirit animal is Sir Ernest Shackleton and our first album is about Adventure. We don't care for the red thread, the Moon in Capricorn or the Yankees. Definitely not the Yankees.
