(from the CD Close To You)
I used to sit by my fireplace and dream about you.,
But now that won’t do, there’s a flaw in my flue.
Your lovely face in my fireplace was all that I saw
But now it won’t draw, my flue has a flaw.
From every beautiful ember a memory arose,
Now I try to remember and smoke gets in my nose.
It’s not as sweet as the unit-heat to dream about you,
So darling, adieu, there’s a flaw in my flue.
