Strange Fruits – The Flame Still Burns lyrics

I live a life that's surreal
Where all that I feel I am learning
Oh life, has been turned on the lathe
Reshaped with a flame that's still burning
And in time, it's all a sweet mystery
When you shake the trees of temptation
Yeah and I, I know the fear and the cost
Of a paradise lost in frustration

And the flame still burns
It's there in my soul for that unfinished goal
And the flame still burns
From a glimmer back then
It lights up again in my life
In my life, yeah

I, I want my thoughts to be heard
The unspoken words of my wisdom
Today, as the light starts to flow
Tomorrow who knows who will listen
But my life has no language in love
No word from above is appearing
Oh the time, in time there's a fire that's stoked
With a reason of hope and believing


Keep rolling keep that flame still burning
Keep on rolling while the world keeps turning
Yeah, keep a'rolling
Yeah, keep a'rolling, yeah
