about

We are told, at some point in our lives that we can burn hot, we can burn bright, and we can burn out like a light, over all too soon. Or we are told that we can bank our fire, dim our light and last a whole life through. What we are NOT told is that at some point in our lives we will meet those who will believe in us so much that they will add fuel to our fires so we can keep burning, and they will do it without ever asking anything in return. This song is dedicated to all of you who believe in keeping the flame alive.

lyrics

Friend of my heart, let me brighten up your flame
Bringing light to the dark is the nature of your game
But fire requires fuel and my friend you're burning down
So let me brighten up the fire that never can be bound

Chorus: Burn hot, burn hard, burn fast
And I will fan the fires so they last
And I will dance among the flame without fear of burn or pain
Freely given is the gift and nothing asked

Fire of my heart, I could never bear to tame
I cup myself around your spark and I fan it into flame
I watch you blaze a trail, burning bright across the sky
And as I long to join you, so I love to watch you fly

Fire of my heart, you have burned away my pain
You have left your mark, and I'll never be the same
As my wings catch fire I can only hope to burn
So let me brighten up your fire and show you what I've learned

Burn hot, burn hard, burn fast
Freely given is the gift and nothing asked
