(Verse)
The sun comes down like a photograph
Try to stop time, there's an aftermath
But it's…
Gone… gone…

(Verse)
Yesterday reads like a tragedy
I try not to lose what's left of me
But it's… gone…
Yea but we'll carry on!

(Chorus)
‘Cause we are fire
Burning baby, you and I
We light the sky when we ignite
Yea yea
When we come alive
When we come alive

(Verse)
It feels like cut, you're getting lost today
The wings in my mind easily swept away
And I'm…
Gone… gone

(Verse)
And it's one last time to the wishing well
I throw down the change and I'm wishing well
But then… gone
Yea but we'll carry on!

(Chorus)
‘Cause we are fire
Burning baby, you and I
We light the sky when we ignite
Yea yea
When we come alive
When we come alive

(Bridge)
And my soul's on fire
We all reach so higher
We got souls on fire
When we come alive
When we come alive

We are fire
You and I

(Chorus)
‘Cause we are fire
Burning baby, you and I
We light the sky when we ignite
Yea yea
When we come alive
When we come alive

When we come alive
When we come alive

Stay
High
So…
