Live Fire

gentle star overhead
burn bright, burn right
but how can you supernova all your life
without losing your light?

always on the edge
at the end of a rope
always running full out
livin’ a life with no hope

a stars life is short enough already
without trying to light up the dark
but the way you’re goin’
you won’t even be left with a spark
be left with a spark

always on the edge
at the end of a rope
always running full out
livin’ a life with no hope

oh gentle star in my head
I feel the fire going out
dying in an empty breeze
full of hot air

live fire
live fire

leaving behind
only doubt and despair
only doubt and despair
only doubt, only doubt, only doubt

live fire
live fire

    This one has the feel of some of the songs that were to come a year later. More uptempo. I like that. Although the lyrics end on a sad note, the music seems to say there is still hope.
