Why should the fire die?
My mom and dad kept theirs alive
It's early yet, don't say goodnight
I know in time you'll be all right

You're shining still behind the clouds
Sayin', I won't figure you out
You like it true but let me try
And try and try for the rest of my life

I'm not scared of bein' alone
I'm not scared of bein' alone, bein' alone
I'm just happier bein' confused
Beside the fire, as long as it's with you

Why should the fire die?
My mom and dad kept theirs alive
It's gettin' late, she says goodnight
I fall asleep, I'll be all right

CHRIS THILE, SARA WATKINS, SEAN WATKINS
