Breath like fire
Take me higher-
And through the room
Burn bright like lighters.
Dear old song, help me remember
Have your lyrics shine like embers.
For they say that rolling stones
Are tears we’ve shed with blood from bone.
It marks the way out of the dark
It leads me to the hearths of home.
My muscles ache; my skin perspires-
But applause will take away…
The pain I feel inside my heart,
This raging fire kept alight.
