let it burn lyrics – the karkadens

long ago, but not forgotten
there was fire in your eyes
how it burned to light the heavens in the night
and miles from home, a tapered road
fell dark under the sky
how it burned to watch that fire die

long ago, and praying for hope
each breath white in the cold
how long each dying hour i return
so many fires, to touch the sky
but just embers in your eyes
and i swore my vengeance long into the night

can we live (no) on like this? (no)
why don’t we just raise our fists and bring
our heaven back
one more night i’ll wander singing
can we live (no) on like this? (no)
why don’t we just raise our fists and free
our hearts again
one more night for vengeance

in my arms
a beating heart
a love burning alive
how long until i meet you in the skies?
but heaven’s gate
without my name
won’t strike me down tonight
how long must i wander in this life?
no, no don’t leave me (x4)

can we live (no) on like this? (no)
why don’t we just raise our fists and bring
our heaven back
one more night i’ll wander singing
can we live (no) on like this? (no)
why don’t we just raise our fists and free
our hearts again
one more night i’ll wander
one more night to wonder
one last time to let it burn
let it burn
