Through The Fire
By Chaka Khan

Album : Vol. 1-Epiphany-Best Of Chaka
Submitted by : unknown
Corrected by : quyetstorm

I look in your eyes and I can see
We've loved so dangerously
You're not trusting your heart to anyone
You tell me you're gonna play it smart
We're through before we start
But I believe that we've only just begun

When it's this good, there's no saying no
I want you so, I'm ready to go

Through the fire, to the limit, to the wall
For a chance to be with you
I'd gladly risk it all
Through the fire
Through whatever, come what may
For a chance at loving you
I'd take it all the way
Right down to the wire
Even through the fire

I know you're afraid of what you feel
You still need time to heal
And I can help if you'll only let me try
You touch me and something in me knew
What I could have with you
Now I'm not ready
To kiss that dream goodbye

When it's this sweet, there's no saying no
I need you so, I'm ready to go


Through the test of time


To the wire, to the limit
Through the fire, through whatever
Through the fire, to the limit
Through the fire, through whatever
Through the fire, to the limit
Through the fire, through whatever

    If you love a person and you know to yourself that he/she is the one, you can pass through any obstacle. You'll take the risk to be with this person and share your life with him/her. If you didn't do an action, it won't be possible for you and him/her to be together.

    Though the fire means to me that a person have love for someone that is truly real. And that person will fully submit to the cause. The kind of love that our lord and savior have for us when he made that sacrifice for us.

    This is great and the Kanye West sample doesn't do it justice. She's talking to a man who won't open up to anyone because he doesn't want to get hurt. She's saying that she'll stay with him and they'll make it through whatever comes their way.
