Fire Escape

from by Juliana Finch

lyrics

I was your fire escape
I was neon sunrise
I was your one way out
I was your exit sign

You put your hands on me
Pushed right through
You put your hands on me
On your way to...

I couldn't be what you wanted
'Cause you don't know what you want yet
You put your lips on mine
and it was right on time
I was right on time

To be your fire escape
Your neon sunrise
I was your one way out
I was your exit sign

You put your hands on me
Pushed right through
You put your hands on me
Like it was nothing to you
You put your hands on me
On your way to...

I am just a footnote in the tale of how you saved yourself
An inconvenient history in a book about somebody else
When I didn't buy your narrative
When my usefulness had been outlived
When you'd taken more than I could give

She was your fire escape
She was your neon sunrise
I saw you walk on by
I saw the exit signs

You put your hands on me and
pushed right through
You put your hands on me
and it was nothing to you
You put your hands on me
put your hands on me
put your hands on me
On your way to...
On your way to...

Always on your way through
