  • So the fire is almost out and there's nothing left to burn
    I've run right out of thoughts and I've run right out of words
    As I used them up, I used them up

    Yeah the fire is almost cold and there's nothing left to burn
    I've run right out of feeling and I've run right out of world
    And everything I promised, and everything I tried
    Yeah everything I ever did I used to feed the fire

    I used to feed the fire
    I used to feed the fire
    I used to feed the fire
    But the fire is almost out is almost out
    And there's nothing left to burn
    No there's nothing left to burn
    Not even this

    And the fire is almost dead and there's nothing left to burn
    I've finished everything
    And all the things I promised, and all the things I tried
    Yeah all the things I ever dreamed I used to feed the fire

    I used to feed the fire
    I used to feed the fire
    I used to feed the fire
    But the fire is almost out

    Half my life I've been here
    Half my life in flames
    Using all I ever had to keep the fire ablaze
    To keep the fire ablaze
    To keep the fire ablaze
    To keep the fire ablaze
    But there's nothing left to burn
    No there's nothing left to burn
    And the fire is almost out
    There fire is almost out
    Almost out, almost out
    Almost out, almost out

    And there's nothing left to burn Writer/s: JASON TOOP COOPER, PERRY BAMONTE, ROBERT JAMES SMITH, ROGER O'DONNELL, SIMON GALLUP
