Vein of Fire
I saw you in color that day A rainbow alive in your hair Cannot stay You had just smiled in the cold A vein of fire burning inside out Won’t blow away That was then The fire burned on It raised its back And kept us warm in the night What is alive in the dawn Cannot survive very long Without change But we were still caught in the cold falling through holes in the back of our memory That was then The fire burned low We gave our hearts To make it whole in the night
Yes, you still smile in the cold A vein of fire turning inside out Won’t blow away
