Didn't we break the silence
Didn't we fear the storm
Didn't we move the earth
Didn't we shoot for the sky

And didn't we catch the fire
And didn't we call upon the spirits
And didn't we fall together
And didn't we die for love

Days on the run
Nights in hiding
Hoping that you were the
Healing inside me

Breathe in the sweet fire of love
I'm not afraid anymore
Sweet, sweet fire
I'm not alone
Breathe in the sweet fire of love
I'm not the same anymore
Sweet, sweet fire
Sweet fire of love
Sweet fire of love

Didn't we cross new waters
Didn't we mix new blood
Didn't we build brand new bridges
Didn't we hold back the flood

Broken idols by the side of the road
Fate didn't fall on the side of the law
Here she comes a-shining like a light
Here she comes salvation in the night

Days on the run
Nights in hiding
Hoping that you were the
Healing inside me

Breathe in the sweet fire of love
I'm not afraid anymore
Sweet, sweet fire
I'm not alone
Breathe in the sweet fire of love
I'm not the same anymore
Sweet, sweet fire
Sweet fire of love
Sweet fire of love

Didn't we shine like silver
Didn't we bear the cross
Didn't we bring down the hammer
Didn't we beat on the drum
Didn't we

Days on the run
Here she comes a-shining like a light
Nights in hiding
Here she comes salvation in the night
Hoping that you were the
I'm givin' up the ghost
Healing inside me
I'm givin' up the ghost

Breathe in the sweet fire of love
I'm not afraid anymore
Sweet, sweet fire
I'm not alone
Breathe in the sweet fire of love
I'm not the same anymore
Sweet, sweet fire
Sweet fire of love
Sweet fire of love
