Firelight Waltz
Written by C. Collingwood


From the Fountains of Wayne album Sky Full of Holes

All the hard-drinking stiffs 
Are asleep on their cots 
And fog's in barrels on Totten Pond Road 
And the sots who remain 
Strike matches and crane 
Cause they can't make their way in the dark 
 
It's a hard parlor game 
Playing miscues and pratfalls for laughs 
From sad sacks and fairweather friends 
You don't have to catch on 
Lay it out and be gone 
There's a calm's been a long time coming 
 
Mary oh Mary go find the light 
Take a hit from your whiskey and stumble inside 
It's a tune from your childhood and a soft yellow moon 
And the firelight is just right for dancing 
 
Like the cruel April air 
Plays muse to the hopeless 
And the storms coax sunflowers from mossy old hills 
May this song find you there 
In your embroidered chair 
With your afghan and warm Darjeeling 
 
Mary oh Mary go find the light 
Take a hit from your whiskey and stumble inside 
It's a tune from your childhood and a soft yellow moon 
And the firelight is just right for dancing
