"Campfire" as written by and Carmine Coppola....
Welcome to your life
You better watch your steps
Well, they could turn to fire
That could sear through your shoes

And through your feet
Move up your legs and eat away your heart until you
You walk a path with love

Then you could be happy
And your feet and hands and head and heart will
Get along comfortably

And you might even breathe easily

Albeit obvious
We hardly seek
But hope to find you there

Makes no difference how hard you try for any
Period of time or length or distance
Under any pressure, in any environment
Walk your path, but, man,
You better watch your step

They'll burst to flames
If you don't pay the ground just a bit of respect
And walk your path with love

And thank the air above

Albeit obvious
We hardly seek
But hope to find you there

Albeit obvious
If we don't speak
No one can lend an ear

With anyone
Or with anything
Or underneath a budding tree

No matter how much you've thought
Or how much you've grown
Or how much you've learned
Or how much you think you know

Or how much you've grieved
Or you've forgiven
Or how much you love
You will never know

Albeit obvious
We hardly seek
But hope to find you there

Albeit obvious
We'll never die
We'll merely disappear

    General Commentour words can do 2 things to people:

    1) tear down, or 2) build up

    this song sounds like an attempt at encouraging us to reach out and build someone up

    General CommentI feel like it's talking about how in life, we don't really have a good life, until we have some kind of love in it, no matter in what form.

    Albeit obvious
    We hardly seek
    But hope to find you there

    i think it talks about happiness/love in general, we don't look for it, but yet we still hope to find it there by chance, but if we don't speak out, no one will hear and we won't find it.
    What gets me though is when it starts saying that no matter what you do, say, feel, etc., you'll never know....
    i don't know what that could mean :/

    General Comment!!This is the way I like to think about it, not necessarily what it's actually about!!

    I think the song is talking about walking a life with Jesus. When it says, "We hardly seek, but hope to find you there," a lot of Christians don't read there bible often, or seek at Jesus. 90% of Christians have never lead someone else to the path of god, they don't seek people out who need him most. so they hardly seek. Yet when the time comes they hope to find him there. When it says, "If we don't speak No one can lend an ear, If we don't preach the word, no one can hear it, and no one is saved. I also think the begging part is about how easy it is to fall into sin, and how you need to walk with love and god to fix that.
