lyrics

Darkness holds me close
Like an old, old friend
But I’ve come to know
I must stand on my own
The road is long
And sometimes I will get burned
But I survive and show my scars
Proud of all that I’ve earned
In my skin are the lessons I have learned

Finding fire....in every step on the road
Finding fire....in every drop of rain
Finding fire....in your every word
Finding fire....and rising up again
We are the children of the flame, we do not bend

Time and tide will cool
The heat on my skin
Sometimes you have to burn it all
and start again
I still listen
To the voices of the trees
Hear the wind, soft
Blow the message in the breeze
I burn when others falter and I am free

Finding fire....in every step on the road
Finding fire....in every drop of rain
Finding fire....in your every word
Finding fire....and rising up again
We are the children of the flame, we do not bend

Without witness, without reward
It’s the life that we must lead
Burning the forest
To make room for new seedlings
I walk in flame
But I do not burn alone
I hear the footfalls of those
Who know well this road
We who burn will always know our own

Finding fire....in every step on the road
Finding fire....in every drop of rain
Finding fire....in your every word
Finding fire....and rising up again
We are the children of the flame, we do not bend

Finding fire....in every step on the road
Finding fire....in every drop of rain
Finding fire....in your every word
Finding fire....and rising up again
We are the keepers of the flame until the end
