Versuri Silverstein - A Great Fire
Burning down, we can't stop it we got to get out, Start again, our memories are gone forever. Don't try to turn this around on me, I'm the one that saved you. This was my home, this was my life, It's not always just about you And as I heard the sirens chime, I could feel my heart begin to race. I can see through the flames that the fire cleanses me, Mind and soul now the same and my body guides the way. I threw you over my shoulder with the angel on my other, But I'm not your hero, I'll never be what you wanted, What you thought I would be. I can see through the flames that the fire cleanses me, Mind and soul now the same and my body guides the way. I can see through my tired eyes, my sickness controls me, Deep inside I know that trust is the mother of deceit. And there you were six years old, ashes in your hair, Your not scared, you've seen so much pain in so few years, As the world becomes a place where no one wants too stay, We remain silent until it's too late. And as I hear the planes take over the sky, I can feel it coming to the end, And your burning down my life so slowly, I know in my heart trust is the mother of deceit.
