Hearts on Fire

Keep coming up for air, just keep trying
Just keep breathing, weíre all dying
And youíre not the only one tonight
We are hearts on fire
We are souls on our knees
We are dreams of tomorrow
We are learning to breathe
Sometimes itís so hard
Sometimes we have to bleed
Sometimes thereís only one shot
And sometimes thatís all we need

We canít see the stars for the city lights
We donít know if itís wrong because it feels so right
Life at these speeds makes everything a blur
But nothingís really fair about love and war
And Iím always saying that none of this is real
But the tears in your eyes taught me to feel

Thereís got to be a reason the embers wonít fade
I hope that your heart will be a supernova someday
But if this spark wonít ignite us weíll never fly
If lyrics were spaceships Iíd write you the sky
Hold on to roses and comets and rain
Poets and liars, weíll take away your pain

Keep coming up for air, just keep trying
Just keep breathing, weíre all dying
And youíre not the only one tonight
We are hearts on fire
We are souls on our knees
We are dreams of tomorrow
We are learning to breathe
Sometimes itís so hard
Sometimes we have to bleed
Sometimes thereís only one shot
And sometimes thatís all we need

Itís all right to get lost in the crowds
Itís perfectly fine to live for here and now
Itís perfectly normal if youíre not all right
So long as you remember to keep up the fight
Because we are a people who sing for our souls
Sing for the starlight and candles to hold

Sing for the funeral dirge of the past
Our voices might rewrite a future that lasts
This is a burning bridge that Iím jumping from
When the sun comes up, weíre still alive, still young
Donít let me down, donít let me down
One blaze of glory will burn this town

Keep coming up for air, just keep trying
Just keep breathing, weíre all dying
And youíre not the only one tonight
We are hearts on fire
We are souls on our knees
We are dreams of tomorrow
We are learning to breathe
Sometimes itís so hard
Sometimes we have to bleed
Sometimes thereís only one shot
And sometimes thatís all we need

I couldn't stop reading after I started.
You did an amazing job! Smiley
