Two weeks later like a surplus reprieve
I found a hair the length of yours on my sleeve
I wound it round and round my finger so tight
It turned to purple and a pulse formed inside

And I knew the beat 'cause it matched your own beat
I still remember that from our chest to chest and feet to feet
The easy silence then was a sweet relief to this hush
Of oven, aeroplanes and of distant car points.

A fire, a fire, you can only take what you can carry
A pulse, your pulse, it's the only thing I can remember
I break, you don't, I was always set to self-destruct, though
The fire, the fire, it cracks and barks like primal music

I said I knew the beat cause it matched your own beat
It's become my engine, my own source of heat
The sea between us only the amplifies the sound waves
And every hum and echo in crash paints my cave

A fire a fire, you can only take what you can carry
A pulse, your pulse, it's the only thing I can remember
I break, you don't, I was always set to self-destruct, though
The fire, the fire, cracks and barks like primal music

La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la, la la la la la

A fire a fire, you can only take what you can carry
A pulse, your pulse, it's the only thing I can remember
I break, you don't, I was always set to self-destruct, though
The fire, the fire, it cracks and barks like primal music

    You carry what u can from a fire is like when u take what u can from a relationship as it dies it cracks flames as it beats from your heart u feel the heat and the music from the fire creates a new beginning or ending as a song fills your heart you hear the beat in your soul cry out

    I love this band, this song... THIS. :3
    I think this song's about falling in love- subtly- and remembering the little things about that person. And how he doesn't want to take it all on at once, because he doesn't want to screw it up ["You can only take what you can carry"].
