lyrics

Little firecracker/Go ahead drink that fire water u//Pour your thoughts out on me//Your honesty is gonna overfill my cup//little doe-eyed drifter//will you trek to san francisco in the summer//Will you make amends//For the things you said//That night you rode the Grey Goose way past having had enough//Little firecracker/ tear me up.

She hopped out of the car, big glasses on//Slipped the bottle in a bag, something fast and strong//She sipped on it and damn it was half way gone//in a couple minutes she had finished 40 ounces tall//Half hour til the power of the drink hit her//Opened a can, little flower on that deep bitter//Heat winter up with the stuff and feel the deep shivers//Creeps comming out of the works trying to sleep with her//And she never meant to be that kind of cheap lover falling all over herself walking in her sleep, stutter stammer//Stumble stagger The gutter swagger//She drinks to laughter cause she thinks she doesn't
matter//And All she wants is for her mother to understand her, but times running out because her mother's got cancer//She's looking to the bottom of a bottle for the answers//And I just want to hold her closer tiny dancer. Little firecracker.

Open up your doors now/No one has walked your hallways since three months past//You told a lie/and that lie could lead to breaking up the act//A libertine vibration//A calculated advance or a mud bath//Dirty girl, dirty liar//Here's some soap now clean up your act//Little firecracker//Fire back.

She's laying down with her ex because he feels safe//Dreaming of the paris of the west, but her wheels stay steady on that course that her parents set forth//Her man's an extension of that plan, that forced border//Bore her to the breath and the breast//Escapism//She more than bored so she drinks just to stay with him//She fakes positions to limmit the shakes breaks rhythm//Slippin from one division to the next, that hazed vision//Sippin on that strong on that god I gotta get along//She can't drive away but she can still get gone//And she's drawn like a portait of Marilyn Monroe//Beautiful but dying in her fortrace her foxhole.

This is the way that you are//Get you lifted then tear you apart at the//Split with all the strength of my heart I don't get this//I'm drowning in water
