"Flame" as written by Hartwig Schierbaum, Wolfgang Michael Neuhaus and Bernd Goessling....
I've been searching for so long
Now I'm chasing the shadows away
I've been trying, yes I tried to find my way
No more crying in the make or break decade
There were times when I was down
There were times I felt so low
My whole life just seemed to be
A senseless quest for energy
But I carry your flame
All through my life, I'm a believer
Peace deep in our hearts, all things must pass
But we'll be together again

I've been walking
I've been walking in the rain
When the angel of my intuition whispered hello
Well I was quite surprised to face
That kind of incarnation
Love comes always unexpected
Love strikes blind and undirected
Love is the answer
Love is all we need my friend
How you came and changed the weather
How I wanna live forever
I carry your flame
All through my life, I'm a believer
Peace deep in our hearts, all things must pass
But we'll be together

    General CommentI love this song. I first heard it when I was cycling through "Stark Naked and Absolutely live", (and the only reason I had that was because it was the only way I could get "Forever Young" through emusic).

    I think its this idea that this person carries the life of him and her, and when the flame goes out, they'll be together, as he carries their flame.

    Song MeaningThis is a love song but it has religious overtones to it for sure. The singer of Alphaville is known to be religious.
