I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire (There’ll Always Be an England)

Ellora Sutton

            ladies ladies gentlemen
set on fire too much
            land love small lane field
I don’t want to don’t want to
dreaming of
I know
I’m dreaming of          awry
                        million marching wheel
way down deep inside fire
one desire baby
I’ve ambition
            there’s surely
don’t want to set a
don’t want to start a
I just want to be a fire always always
                        while worlds change chains
                        wherever wherever
admission goal I’m in
I me you you               free blue shout too loud
I just start and set great big down
ain’t gonna start no fire
but for you                 
always
