  • I met the hunger, and it took my hand
    Got lost in wonder of a sinful land
    Yeah, I took the drink, I liked the taste
    I burned the smoke, I sparked the blaze
    That left me wantin'
    It left me wantin
    When I was desperate, and I lost my faith
    I found an angel in a broken place
    She led me out when I went astray
    She showed me peace, she lit the way
    Gave me comfort
    She brought me comfort
    She led me out, when I went astray
    She showed me peace, she lit the way
    Gave me comfort

    I guess I'm stuck out in the middle
    'Cause I got this reckless heart that I can't tame
    Just when I think I've reigned it in a little
    I'm still somewhere between the fire and flame
    And someday I might find my way to heaven
    And Lord, I hope there's still room on that train
    But if you're looking for me tonight, I'll be out here burning bright
    Somewhere between the fire and flame

    I met a wise man
    With a golden key
    Deep in the shadows
    Of a lonely street
    He had a love there in his eyes
    That perfect peace I recognized
    I knew I wanted, I knew I wanted
    He spoke the truth, reached out to me
    He took my hand ,I shook it free
    Kept on walking

    I guess I'm stuck out in the middle
    'Cause I got this reckless heart that I can't tame
    Just when I think I've reigned it in a little
    I'm still somewhere between the fire and flame
    And someday I might find my way to heaven
    And Lord, I hope there's still room on that train
    But if you're looking for me tonight, I'll be out here burning bright
    Somewhere between the fire and flame (ay)

    Someday I'll get where I'm going
    Until then I'll keep on floating
    Out here
    Somewhere between the fire and flame

    I guess I'm stuck out in the middle
    'Cause I got this reckless heart that I can't tame
    Just when I think I've reigned it in a little
    I'm still somewhere between the fire and flame
    And someday I might find my way to heaven
    And Lord, I hope there's still room on that train
    But if you're looking for me tonight, I'll be out here burning bright
    Somewhere between the fire and flame

    Someday I might find my way to heaven
    And Lord, I hope there's still room on that train
    If you're looking for me tonight, I'll be out here burning bright
