"Currents" as written by and Chris Carrabba....
The air is visible around you, rising up and off your lips in slow currents
And I watch as your face is framed in its slow currents
Drifting curls a trailing path
A long drag becomes a dress of blue and ash

If it is born in flames then we should let it burn
Burn as brightly as we can
And if its gotta end then let it end in flames
Let it burn all the way down

The air is visceral around us
Turning in its simple steps on slow currents
And I watch as it pirouettes and spins in slow motion
A long drag becomes a slow dance and a halo around her

If it is born in flames then we should let it burn
Burn as brightly as we can
And if its gotta end then let it end in flames
Let it burn all the way down
All the way down

And if this is ever meant to end, then I hope it ends where it began
So hot with love we burned our hands
If this is ever meant to end then I hope it ends where it began
So hot with love, it burns our hands

If it is born in flames then we should let it burn
Burn as brightly as we can
If its gotta end then let it end in flames
Let it burn, let it burn
If its gotta end let it burn
If its gotta end let it burn
It ends where it began, so hot with love, it burns our hands

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful... it really means a lot to me cause I had a relationship that started off red hot, and went down in flames. Good stuff.

    General CommentPerfectly sums up how I am feeling right now...with the fire extuinguishing of my love. Let things that began passionately, end passionately. Props for recognizing the visible/visceral difference.

    General CommentJust a small thing, instead of "going" he says gotta, but whatever.

    Also, pretty easy to get, however I think these lyrics are really visual, he describes everything so you can really see whats happening. Not only that but it is pretty optimistic.

    General CommentAfter 3 years, I was slightly worried, but the new CD is great from top to bottom. This is one of the best songs on it.

    General CommentThis song has one of my favorite lines from “Dusk”..."And if this is ever meant to end,
    Then I hope it ends where it began. So hot with love, we burned our hands."

    It strikes a chord in me because it's true-- I wish I could remember things the way they began. Be it relationships with people, or life in general. Greatness fades away, and by the end you often forget why it was so great in the first place--You wish you could remember.

    Side note: When Chris says "in a halo of ember", I actually thought he was saying "and I hate love", which I commended him for doing! Some feelings of old Dashboard desperation, but alas my ears deceived me. Rats.
