Through the Flames

Through the Flames

A memory it fades as the time flickers past
A lifetime of pain and death outlasting
As the blossoms they fall on a stiff northern wind
My eyes trace the path to take refuge within

And life, leaves me in darkness
A sin left me here in utter shame
As my memory holds thoughts of former gladness
For you to judge my battered soul remains

Look away, look away,
Tis the day when your fathers be calling your name
Look away, oh look away
Lift your eyes to the cross as we walk through the flames
Kiss your kids and your wife, turn your back to the light
‘cause we’ll burn all that’s left so my boys look away

we traced the green fields as our hearts raced along
warm winds filled our breath the trees were singing
an innocence spent under blue skies, carefree
a life looking back blessed with fortune were we
