  • Oh
    Oh
    Woah
    Woah

    The sun goes down like a photograph
    You try to stop time in the aftermath
    But it's gone, gone

    Yesterday reads like a tragedy
    I try not to lose what's left of me
    But it's gone
    Yeah, but we carry on

    'Cause we are fire
    Burning brightly
    You and I

    We light the sky
    When we ignite, yeah, yeah
    When we come alive
    When we come alive

    It feels like I could get lost today
    The winds in my mind get swept away
    And I'm gone, gone

    And it's one last time to the wishing well
    I throw down the change and I wish them well
    But they're gone
    Yeah, but we'll carry on

    'Cause we are fire
    Burning brightly
    You and I

    We light the sky
    When we ignite, yeah, yeah
    When we come alive
    When we come alive

    We are souls on fire
    We are reaching higher
    We are souls on fire
    When we come alive
    When we come alive

    We are fire
    You and I

    Oh
    Oh

    We are fire
    Burning brightly
    You and I

    We light the sky
    When we ignite, yeah, yeah
    When we come alive
    When we come alive

    Yeah when we come alive
    When we come alive
