lyrics

The moonlight it was dancing cross the path onto the stones
A light burned warm and calling to a place I did not know
It burned a dozen colors it’s soft light held a song
A voice I knew and yet did not “Our love’s what makes us strong”

Burn, children, burn!
Burn, children, burn!
Burn, children, burn!
Never let the light die
Never let the light die

The sharp wind wrapped around me as I huddled against the cold
And listened to this voice that I’d never heard before
The edge of light held teeth against the unknown cold
It held back all I could not see and all I did not know

Burn, children, burn!
Burn, children, burn!
Burn, children, burn!
Never let the light die
Never let the light die

The voice held no time, it held no age, it held no will
One voice became a choir across the evening still
My mind was thrown across the dark to places voices filled
Voices raised in anger confusion and ill will

Burn, children, burn!
Burn, children, burn!
Burn, children, burn!
Never let the light die
Never let the light die

Though the battles rage around us and be they lost or won
The truth burns within us we are the fire all along
No price is too high to sing our final song
To raise the flag of peace once more our love’s what makes us strong

Burn, children, burn!
Burn, children, burn!
Burn, children, burn!
Never let the light die
Never let the light die

Our love’s what makes us strong
Our love’s what makes us strong
Our love’s what makes us strong
Our love’s what makes us strong

Onward!
The moonlight it was dancing cross the path onto the stones
Our light burns warm and calling to places we do not know
We burn a dozen colors our light still holds our song
Our voices will carry onward “Our love’s what makes us strong”
Our love’s what makes us strong
Our love’s what makes us strong
Our love’s what makes us strong

Listen
Listen
Listen to the flame
