This Fire
Author: Tammy


Embedded in my heart there's a fire
burning out of control.
The flames are rising higher
scorching my very soul.

For so long I tried to hold you
though you wandered to another.
Now I am left with this fire
I can't seem to smother.

My life is so lonesome
my world now crazy.
All I have is this fire
with the flames still blazing.

Tears fill my eyes
I try to hide this pain.
All I have is sunshine
what I need is rain.

"To Put Out This Fire"
