  • The cocaine bag, and your lovers numbers
    Found in the bottom of our baby's crib
    I've never asked for what you have given
    And I can't take it for another day
    And if you say I've become a stranger
    In this house that I built for you
    Then I would ask you to reconsider
    Your rendezvous out on Lake Pontchartrain

    Chorus:
    I have been wronged and I have been mad
    I have planned violence in the face of love
    I tore the wires, and left them tattered
    I swear the both of you won't make it back, Hey, Hey

    I never knew why men would turn to violence
    Then I met you and it came all too clear
    The whiskey, whining, and constant lying
    And the cheating in our very own bed

    Chorus

    So cheating men and cheating women
    Don't deserve half of what they tore away
    Just a brief float in my old johnboat
    And blow them up upon the Pontchartrain

    Chorus

    Fire on the Pontchartrain (Fire on the Pontchartrain
    I'll watch the rising flame, and make a toast
    then I'll buy myself a brand new boat
    Fire on the Pontchartrain (Fire on the Pontchartrain)
    Fire on the Pontchartrain (Fire on the Pontchartrain)
    Fire on the Pontchartrain (Fire on the Pontchartrain)
    Fire on the Pontchartrain

    Such a beautiful light, such a beautiful light
    Such a beautiful life, such a beautiful life
    Such a beautiful life

    That night on the Pontchartrain
    I saw you leaving in the pouring rain
    Turned my head and I count to ten
    Now I want you back again, Such a beautiful life

    That night on the Pontchartrain
    I saw you leaving in the pouring rain
    I turned my head and I count to ten
    But I want you back again
    It?s a beautiful light...for such a beautiful lie
    It was a beautiful light, such a beautiful lie
    Such a beautiful life
