Your Fire Will Lead You On

We gather together, and we pick up
Singing songs you and I both know
Wander to the nearest one
We set fire and watch it glow.

My baby's here, and she blows smoke
It fades into the fire and spins
The air changes its night course
and our backs are to the wind.

And though my love is far from here
hints of him come sneaking through
I am reminded of all that I miss
The back of my hand, old and new.

A collection of my recent past here
Memories created leave a scar
I look up to hide back these tears
And make a wish upon a star.

Your fire will lead you on,
Light your path always.
