"About A Burning Fire" as written by and Simon Frank Grenehed Christian Thell Lindskog....
I thought about fire in the sky.
I thought about fire.
I thought about love burning in your eye.
I thought about fire.
It hurts that drops of fire would fall so precise,
and how everything else would lose its meaning.
What a beautiful, what a painful surprise.
There is no peace outside if there is nothing within.
It hurts. But like coming home, once dried up.
I guess this is what you get when a heart expands.

I thought about

Love is destructive for the ego.
And Your voice is the only thing
that speaks rebelliously in this world of claiming your own.
There is no peace outside if there's nothing within.
Love is addictive for the spirit.
And Your voice whispers with a roar,
that fire rises up, refills.
Place the right king on the throne

I thought about

I thought about a burning fire
I thought about a loving fire
I thought about Your love

    General CommentExcellent song with excellent lyrics. I think it's written about being scarred by an abandoned love. Having everything sucked out of you by such a overwhelming feeling.

    General CommentBlindside is such a great band...the way they incorporate their faith into everything they do...it's awesome to me! I think this song is about God in His Shekinah Glory...he appeard to Moses as a burning bush in Exodus and I think that might be what he's referring to concerning the fire. I think the first verse talks about how God's love comes at the right time and when that comes all the things of the world lose their meaning. Though it's painful to give up the ways you used to live, it's a beautiful thing to be able to serve God with your life. He then goes on to say that "There is no peace inside if there's nothing within"...there is no peace in any man if the Holy Spirit doesn't dwell within you. It hurts to get out of the comfortable ways of sin, but you come home to God. He was once just this dried up thing but with God your heart expands and it is filled with love for others and Him. When he talks about love being destructive, I think he's talking about the love of the world. When you love things of the world more than you love your Savior, your ego swells and you loose sight of what's going on. God's voice and persistence is the only thing to keep you going and will be the only thing to keep you strong in the world. His love is addictive for us and it fills us with the Spirit...when He speaks to you, it's soft but strong. That fire for God gets bigger and we realize that we need to put the right king on the throne...truly worship God and not things of the world. This is a beautiful song with beautiful lyrics...Yea God!

    "Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." -John 15:13

    General CommentI think this song is pretty straight-forward, its talking about God's love, and what it does in your life.
    The chorus: "I thought about fire in the sky"
    I think that's saying that he knows that God's up there, and He's looking down, and that He loves us,
    the verses are saying how your love for God will destory your life if you totally cosumed by Him, but what I beautiful thing it is!

    General CommentI think think this song can be taken two ways...the way Aeroin has interpreted it and also the way Whitedays has.

    Sometimes ambiguity leaves something for everyone

    General CommentThis song has alot of meaning to it! Blindside is awhole lot better than most bands that I've heard. Most bands talk about the same things and their lyrics are so vaugue and predictable. I think Blindside's lyrics are like a story. Christian and the others are telling a story that's what their lyrics are like. BLINDSIDE ROCKS!!!!!!

    General CommentThis song is a great metaphor for thinking of God's love. It is a fire that longs to consume you entirely and it will spread to every part of your life if you let it. The line about love being destructive to the ego is about how you will be humble before God. If you can't see this, then you haven't seen them live where Christian taps his heart and points to the sky for the entire song and you are blind.
