"Forest Fire" as written by Thomas Michael Smith, Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Russell Leetch and Edward Owen Lay....
Take me home, somewhere safe
Lean on me, saving grace
Such a light, where you are
Something new, forest fire

I'll miss this when it's gone
Let's not waste life, come on
I'll miss this when it's gone
Let's not waste life, come on, come on

We all sit next to the fire
We watch you burn
Oh, we all sit next to the fire
And watch you burn

    General CommentIn line with the the theme of a loved one passing in many Editors songs, I would say this one is referring to a cremation.

    General CommentOkies so this is my feel on this song:

    "Take me home, somewhere safe" I think he is singing about someone whose life was spiralling out of control. And after drinking or abusing drugs maybe, she would ask him to take her home...
    "Lean on me, saving grace" The fact that she leaned on him was his only saving grace or all he thought she saw in him.
    "Such a light, where you are" She died because of her reckless behaviour and is in heaven now.
    "Something new, forest fire" He sees her as a forest fire...burning out of control, always wanting something new, never satisfied. Well heaven is something new for her too now.
    "I'll miss this when it's gone, Let's not waste life, come on" This was probably her favourite saying, of living in the moment and having fun while your young.
    "We all sit next to the fire We watch you burn" He blames himself for not helping her...him and all their friends just watched how she kept spiralling out of control and didn't do anything to stop it.
