  • Looking for an exit in this world of fear
    I can see the path that leads away
    Mama never left, and daddy needs me here
    I wish the wind would carry a change
    Looking through the window to a world of dreams
    I can see my future slip away
    Honey you won't get there if you don't believe
    I wish the wind would carry a change

    I've had enough
    I'm standing up
    I need, I need a change
    I've had enough
    Of chasing luck
    I need, I need a change

    I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
    Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
    We starting fires,
    We starting fires till our lives are burning gold
    Till our lives are burning gold

    Looking for my ticket to a higher place
    I can see my chance begin to fade
    One step forward and two back again
    I wish the wind would carry a change

    I've had enough
    I'm standing up
    I need, I need a change
    I've had enough
    Of chasing luck
    I need, I need a change

    I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
    Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
    We starting fires,
    We starting fires till our lives are burning gold
    Till our lives are burning gold

    Looking back I see I had the flame in me
    I'm the wind that's carrying a change

    I've had enough
    Of chasing luck
    I need, I need a change

    I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
    Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
    We starting fires,
    We starting fires till our lives are burning gold

    I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
    Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
    We starting fires,
    We starting fires till our lives are burning gold
    Till our lives are burning gold Writer/s: CHRISTINA PERRI, THOMAS EDWARD PERCY HULL
