(Rosanne Cash - John Leventhal)

We are awakened, restored and renewed
The bounds of desire have led me to you
The heat of the questions that linger and stir
Is the fire that enfolds us, a place to be cured
Salvation and rescue
And the one thing of which I am sure

Your hand on my heart
And it's beating in time
To the sound of your voice
And the look in your eyes
The moment you touch me
All down inside
Is the fire of the newly alive

The passion of old is a children's quick game
Now it's sound of the thunder and feel of the flames
You leave a message so deep in my skin
Where you stop is where I begin

Your hand on my heart
And it's beating in time
To the sound of your voice
And the look in your eyes
The moment you touch me
All down inside
Is the fire
I'm on fire

You are the reason, the time and the face
I am dissolving in oceans of grace
I'd give up a lifetime to keep you from harm
Be your salvation and rescue
And burn bridges to lie in your arms

Your hand on my heart
And it's beating in time
To the sound of your voice
And the look in your eyes
The moment you touch me
All down inside
Is the fire of the newly alive

Your hand on my heart
And it's beating in time
To the sound of your voice
And the look in your eyes
The moment you touch me
All down inside
Is the fire
I'm on fire
