the core lyrics – eric clapton

every morning when i wake
a feeling soon begins to overtake me
ringing in my ears resounds
through my brain; it finally surrounds me

there is fire, there is life
there is p*ssion, fever and fury
there is love and there is hate
there is longing, anger and worry

oh, i am a flame
feel it touch my heart
and down at my core is the hottest part
i can run without fear

if it should become too cold
i know i can endure the frostbite
oh, a blanket then i’ll wrap around me
i keep myself so close to my sight

no one then can cause me harm
just as the river runs into the sea
’cause every day, a fire alarm
is deafening the silence all around me

oh, i am a flame
feel it touch my heart
and down at my core is the hottest part
i can run without fear

it is burning
it is burning

you can trust me, we can laugh
together we can share our sorrow
i will give you secrets too
an att*tude that you may borrow

gypsy woman said to me
“one thing you must bear in your mind
you are young and you are free
but d*mned if you’re deceased in your own lifetime”

oh, you have a flame
feel it in your heart
and down at the core is the hottest part
we can run without fear

it is burning
it is burning
