WAITING FOR THE FIRE

Listen To ‘Waiting For The Fire’
 

Lyrics and Music by Jeff Pike

It’s funny how the years can come and go
Take away the life you used to know
Embrace your heart and soul no longer one
You’re on your own you’re on the run.

If you were so good why are you free?
And you and I we both agree
That there’s a lonely road ahead that calls your name.
We told you just how it would be.
You closed your eyes you wouldn’t see.

I’m waiting for the fire to take me in.
I’m waiting for the fire to put an end
To the hopes and dreams of a lonely man
I’m waiting for the fire in the eyes of a girl who understands

And if it could all be all said and done and I was left the only one.
To travel on and hope to find a life, a love, some peace of mind.

There’s only one road left to choose.
You’ve only one life win or lose.
And you roll the dice, you bet, you take the chance
But don’t lay it all on true romance.

CHORUS

I’m waiting for the fire to take me in.
I’m waiting for the fire to put an end
To the hopes and dreams of a desperate man
I’m waiting for the fire in the eyes of a girl who understands
