Into the Fire

Lyrics by Sarah McLachlan, that poet of Eden.

Mother teach me to walk again
Milk and honey so intoxicating

And into the fire
I’m reunited
Into the fire
I am the spark
Into the fire
I yearn for comfort

Open the doors that lead on in to Eden
No more cheap disguise
I follow the signs marked back to the beginning
No more compromise

Free the water that carries me to the sea
You I see as my security

I will stare into the sun until it’s light doesn’t blind me
I will walk into the fire until it’s heat doesn’t burn me
And I will feed the fire
