My sin is sulfur.
I can smell sulfur.
Save me from fires,
but not from your fire.
Inhale. Smile. Exhale. Cry.
What will you make of me?
Set my matchbox heart aflame.
Refine me.
Do not be angry.
Define me.
I am alive.
Inhale. Alive. Exhale. Alive.

    General CommentFor me, this is sort of a longing to get Closer/Grow your relationship with God sort of song.

    My sin is sulfur.
    I can smell sulfur.
    [Sin is awful, is feeling convicted]
    Save me from fires,
    but not from your fire.
    [Save me from the fires of hell, but not for the fire (desire) to be closer to you]
    Inhale. Smile. Exhale. Cry.
    [inhaling (getting closer) You is glorious. exhaling (falling away from You) is pain.]
    What will you make of me?
    Set my matchbox heart aflame.
    [What's Your will for me? Set my already willing heart on fire for YOU.]
    Refine me.
    Do not be angry.
    Define me.
    I am alive.
    Inhale. Alive. Exhale. Alive.
    [ Make me new. Have patience with/forgive me. Shine through me. You make me feel so alive.]

    That's what I get out of it anyways. I love them. Too bad they broke up! : (
