(Kasey Chambers)

When the fire burns out here
It's brighter than the city lights
Warmer than a heart of gold
And dingoes howl just to break the silence
The sun comes up just to break the cold
Last night I woke
With the stars looking back at me
Swallowing the sky
I felt no anger, I felt no shame
I felt no reason to cry

If I'm not here in the morning
Yeah, I'll cry a river of tears
And I'll learn to live in a new town
But my heart is staying here

Well it's quiet out here
A hundred miles away
You can hear the train on the line
The whistle blows just to break the silence
I wave just to break the time
I close my eyes
I think of runnin' water
I think of runnin' away
But the fire is burnt to ashes
And it's darker than before
But I can see as clear as day

If I'm not here in the morning
Yeah, I'll cry a river of tears
And I'll learn to live in a new town
But my heart is staying here

I'll learn to live in a new town
But my heart is staying here
