a fire burns fierce, it's flames are cold
cutting through both body and soul
each leaves it's mark in ash and oil
its wounds don't heal, only grow old
a longing heart, a child unknown
keep your tears, they will not help
but stay, please stay, stay with me
unknown darkness sings with pain
sad? or scared? or angry? in need?
no one knows, no one sees
take my hand, it trembles so
take me safe
take me though
take this child, while strong and weak
take this child, so she may speak
this child she speaks of ice and flame
the child speaks; a life of pain
take this child 'fore she fades
take this child, unknown to love's name
keep this child, all the same
