Eric Clapton – Core lyrics
[Verse]
Every morning when I wake
A feeling soon begins to overtake me
Ringing in my ears resounds
Through my brain it finally surrounds me

There is fire, there is life
There is passion, fever and fury
There is love and there is hate
There is longing, anger and worry

[Chorus]
Oh, I am a flame, feel it touch my heart
And down at my core is the hottest part
I can run without fear

[Verse]
If it should become too cold
I know I can endure the frostbite
Oh, a blanket then I'll wrap around me
I keep myself so close to my side

No one then can cause me harm
Just as the river runs into the sea
'Cause every day, your fire alarm
Is deafening the silence all around me

[Chorus]
Oh, I am a flame, feel it touch my heart
And down at my core is the hottest part
I can run without fear

[Verse]
Oh, you can trust me, we can laugh
Together we can share our sorrow
I will give you secrets too
An attitude that you may borrow

Gypsy woman said to me
"One thing you must bear in your mind
You are young and you are free,
But damned if you're deceased in your own lifetime"

[Chorus]
Oh, you have a flame, feel it in your heart
And down at the core is the hottest part
We can run without fear
