They tell you where you need to go
Tell you when you need to leave
They tell you what you need to know
Tell you who you need to be

But everything inside you knows there's more than what you've heard
There's so much more than empty conversations filled with empty words

And you're on fire when he's near you
You're on fire when he speaks
You're on fire burning at these mysteries

They give me one more time around
Give me one more chance to see
Give me everything you are
Give me one more chance to be near you

When everything inside me looks like everything I hate
You are the hope i have for change
You are the only chance i'll take

When I'm on fire when you're near me
I'm on fire when you speak
I'm on fire burning at these mysteries
Mysteries
Mysteries

You're on fire [3x]
I'm standing on the edge of me [3x]
I'm standing on the edge of everything I've never been before
And I've been standing on the edge of me
Standing on the edge

And I'm on fire when you're near me
I'm on fire when you speak
I'm on fire burning at these mysteries
These mysteries [2x]
You're a mystery [2x]

    God makes us feel as if we're on fire, in a good way. Everything he does makes us feel that way. His mysteries are unfathomable, and yet he still loves us.

    We are use to looking and listening to the worlds ways. But those of us who have christ words in us lights us like fire. We have him and have nothing to fear.

    You can only be truly on fire when you're in god's presence. A heavenly, peaceful fire, of happiness. The meaning of this song to me is about his experience with god and the mysteries of god.
