These lyrics have been bouncing through my head all day, so I thought I'd share.



Cold Fire, by Rush

It was long after midnight
When we got to unconditional love
She said "Sure, my heart is boundless
But don't push my limits too far."
I said "If love was so transcendant
I don't understand these boundaries."
She said "Just don't disappoint me,
You know how complex women are."
I'll be around
If you don't let me down too far
I'll be around
If you don't let me down
It was just before sunrise
When we started on traditional roles
She said "Sure, I'll be your partner
But don't make too many demands."
I said "If love has these conditions,
I don't understand those songs you love."
She said "This is not a love song
This isn't fantasyland."
Don't go too far
A phosphorescent wave on a tropical sea is a cold fire
Don't cross the line
The pattern of moonlight on the bedroom floor is a cold fire
Don't let me down
The flame at the heart of a pawnbroker's diamond is a cold fire
Don't break the spell
The look in your eyes as you head for the door is a cold fire
I'll be around
If you don't push me down too far
I'll be around
If you don't push me down
Love is blind if you are gentle
Love can turn to a long, cold burn...




This all due to a week in Utah filled with rocket motor firings, and long-after-midnight discussions of unconditional love.
