lyrics

BESIDE THE FIRELIGHT

Cities are on fire
Burning to the ground
Hearts are on fire
Burning to the sound
Of sirens and of promises
That some forgot to keep
And of nightmares in uniform
We’ve been awakened from our sleep
One man’s life was taken
And now the world is traumatized
One man’s life was taken
Don’t let the truth be paralyzed
Will you walk with me beside the firelight?
Will you walk with me beside the firelight?

My mind is on fire
And racing through the streets
Along the well worn sidewalks
Where good and evil meet
I’m listening and I’m trying
To let the hard truth set me free
But too many of us are dying
For a cause that need not be
One last life forsaken
As he begged for his last breath
One last life forsaken
And we cannot forget their deaths
Will you walk with me beside the firelight?
Will you walk with me beside the firelight?
