lyrics

There’s a fire on this mountain
the trees fall in its wake
the wind fuels it forward
and the sun feeds its rage
Here we’ve built this home
of wood and stone
it’s the only home we’ve ever known
We say goodbye
we say goodbye
cuz nothing can stop this fire

So what do we take
what do we take
what do we need for comfort’s sake
leave behind the chairs and the pillows
we won’t need those where we go
leave behind the worries and concerns
it’s time to free the past
and let it burn
let it burn

You can try to reason with the flames
but they’re gonna burn you
all the same
You can hold onto the ashes
but through your fingers it all passes
You can try to rebuild the same
or you can let go and dance with the flames
This new place we go
this new found home
is on the very ground we walk
it’s in our voice it’s in our thoughts
it’s in the blood that’s in our veins
it’s in our wax it’s in our wanes
it’s in the color of our eyes
it’s in our truth without our lies
it’s in the feet of our soul
it’s in the fabric of our bones
it’s in the darkness that we fear
until we realize
that home is here
Home is here
in our bodies and our souls
we have found this place called home

So when the fire comes you choke
to see your life go up in smoke
and then finally you see
that it’s the fire
that sets you free
