fire dances

By @Inko117

No. 007 fire dances

embers dancing in the dark

like the shadows on the wall

if i could just make it tonight

then i’ll know we’ll be alright

even with this load i haul

but your fire always leaves its mark

burning inside my heart

knowing from the very start

ashes in the cold wind of december

feeling your fading fire’s warmth

but i promised to get you home

as i’m carrying you through this storm

dancing in my heart

your fire dances in the dark

fearing nothing from the start

always leaving its mark

on my beating heart

embers dancing in the dark

like the shadows on the wall

if we could just make it tonight

then we’ll know we’ll be alright

even with this load we haul

but our fire always leaves its mark

burning inside our heart

but knowing from the very start

i’m growing weak from the cold

feels like i won’t make it home

but your staying by my side

feeling our heat collide

all that’s left of me, skin and bone

still carrying you home

dancing in my heart

your fire dances in the dark

love forged from the start

always leaving its mark

on my beating heart

our heat melting the snow

and you know what i know

the warmth of your glow

i’ll never let you go
