lyrics

Tend the fire in your heart,
and I will light your way.
Flicker lively in the dark,
and we’ll share a brighter day.

But I need you to invite me in, and I need you to do it again.
I am always with you, but I need you with me, too.

Life’s a trick of optics and light,
to distract, deceive, and delight.
You sense purpose but its unclear,
my hope’s that you’d draw me near.

But I need you to invite me in, and I need you to do it again.
I am always with you, but I need you with me, too.

I had to give up my sense of control to feel what I did not know.
And because I let go, I’m freed and open to grow.

But I need you to invite me in, and I need you to do it again.
I am always with you, but I need you with me, too.

Please guide me back to the stream
when I try to quench my thirst.
Wash my eyes so I can see
who I am born to be.

But I need you to invite me in, and I need you to do it again.
I am always with you, but I need you with me, too.
