mae – the house that fire built lyrics
i think i saw the vision, i’d even call it a sign.
i’ll now ignite the mission, yeah to fall in love, not fall in line.
still, something real was missing to mix with heat and light
a brand new fuel giving purpose to the ups and downs and wrongs and rights.
when all the flames came rushing it was so beautiful.
still, i wanted something more to say as i spread this blaze
so i left that fire, and started a new one. (and then another one.)
so do you think to give up could be better, or have you even tried?
the fire you have warmed up to is only gonna burn you up inside.
when all the flames came rushing it was oh so beautiful.
but i wanted something more to say when i spread this blaze.
so i left that fire, and started a new one. i started a new one.
(soak the ground with gasoline,
drop the match and let the blaze infect us all.)
seeing this fire burning out of control,
i finally feel the warmth of the everglow.
take a dream, light it up and watch it grow.
a combustible explosion (explode)
before you say that a part of you has died,
remember that the fire is on the inside.
all you need is to open up wide.
time for action, chain reaction (it’s time)
i see the truth rising up in flames
oh it burns away at the remains,
and it’s strong enough to overtake the rain
bright enough to see the light of day.
when all the flames came rushing, well you know it was beautiful.
but you’ve still got something more to say
for this world today i know that we could change
so let’s make a pact, to never hold it back.
won’t you take that fire with you and then start a new one?
go ahead and then start a new one
we’ve started a new one.
