Oh
Oh
Woah
Woah

The sun goes down like a photograph
You try to stop time in the aftermath
But it's gone, gone

Yesterday reads like a tragedy
I try not to lose what's left of me
But it's gone
Yeah, but we carry on

'Cause we are fire
Burning brightly
You and I

We light the sky
When we ignite, yeah, yeah
When we come alive
When we come alive

It feels like I could get lost today
The winds in my mind get swept away
And I'm gone, gone

And it's one last time to the wishing well
I throw down the change and I wish them well
But they're gone
Yeah, but we'll carry on

'Cause we are fire
Burning brightly
You and I

We light the sky
When we ignite, yeah, yeah
When we come alive
When we come alive

We are souls on fire
We are reaching higher
We are souls on fire
When we come alive
When we come alive

We are fire
You and I

Oh
Oh

We are fire
Burning brightly
You and I

We light the sky
When we ignite, yeah, yeah
When we come alive
When we come alive

Yeah when we come alive
When we come alive

Strength, heart, soul
