Wildfire

 

Made to fill a part

and to deny it is a start

but where to go when it gets dark?

They lead you to believe

that certain things are meant to be

that they know what you can achieve

Rest your head on asphalt

Lay your cheek on gravel road

 

Waiting for a chance

to hold your future in your hands

but you must do what he demands

Every other day

those other faces pass your way

and wonder if you are okay

Rest your head on asphalt

Lay your cheek on gravel road

 

If you raise your voice

you'll step right into wildfire

but do you have a choice?

Feel the burning skin

It feels safer to retire

but you can't outrun this summoning

 

It's you, it's you who decides what you'll say

It's you, it's you who decides if you'll stay

 

Waiting for a sign

to leave your ball and chain behind

but now you're scared of what you'll find

What if all you know

is to accept and to let go

of every stone that they might throw?

Rest your head on asphalt

Lay your cheek on gravel road

 

Listen to the sound

of heavy iron hitting ground

and take your time to come around

You know what you need

when you feel ready you proceed

Before a harvest comes a seed

Rest your head on asphalt

Lay your cheek on gravel road

 

If you raise your voice

you'll step right into wildfire

but do you have a choice?

Feel the burning skin

It feels safer to retire

but you can't outrun this summoning

 

It's you, it's you who decides

It's you, it's you who decides what you'll say

It's you, it's you who decides

It's you, it's you who decides if you'll stay
