Laura Veirs, “July Flame”

Laura Veirs_LOTW

July flame
Fiery kite
Will o the wisp
Lead me through the night

July flame
Sweet summer peach
High up in the branch
Just out of my reach

Can I call you mine?
Can I call you mine?

July flame
I’m seeing fireworks
They’re so beautiful
Tell me why it hurts

July flame
Ashes of a secret heart
Falling in my lemonade
Unslakeable thirsting in the back yard
