It’s a dark and lonely winter
you say “this hell’s never felt so cold”
yet there’s the faintest smell of cinders
and a truth yet to be told

and a sound surrounds your secret
something I’ve heard, but can’t yet see
like whispers in the twilight
the secret now revealed to me...

it’s a flame
burning just behind your eyes
I’m praying for rain
but nothing will put out these fires
that burn and blaze

let’s not forsake all these years
if you’d just stay
there’s so much truth still to hear
and I’ll listen all night
to your hopes and every fear
I won’t say it’s alright
these things always end in tears

you’re fanning the flame
and everything is catching fire
the things that you hate
and everything that you desire
are one and the same
running to escape this pyre
and cover the shame
hiding just behind your eyes
through green and grey

we turn, turn with hearts on fire
we feel it inside
we’re steeling to die
to burn, burn what we conspire
we cast it aside
to keep us alive

there’s a flame
the things that you hate
the tears that you taste
we burn it away
there’s a flame.
