I think I saw the vision I'd even call it a sign
I'll now ignite the mission yeah to fall in love, not fall in line
Still something real was missing to mix with heat and light
A brand new fuel giving purpose to the ups and downs and wrongs and rights

When all the flames came rushing it was so beautiful
Still I wanted something more to say
As I spread this blaze
So I left that fire
And I started a new one 
(and then another one)

So do you think to give up could be better or have you even tried?
The fire you have warmed up to is only gonna burn you up inside

When all the flames came rushing it was oh so beautiful
But I wanted something more to say
While I spread this blaze
So I left that fire
And started a new one 
I started a new one

(soak the ground with gasoline, drop the match and let the blaze infect us all)

Seeing this fire burn out of control
I finally feel the warmth of the Everglow
Take a dream light it up and watch it grow
A combustible explosion (explode)

Before you say that a part of you has died
Remember that the fire is on the inside
All you need is to open it up wide
Time for action chain reaction (it's time)

I see the truth rising up in the flames
Oh it burns away at the remains 
And it's strong enough to overtake the rain
Bright enough to see the light of day

When all the flames came rushing, well, you know it was beautiful
But you've still got something more to say 
For this world today I know that we could change
So let's make a pact to never hold it back
Won't you take that fire with you and then start a new one
Go ahead and then start a new one
Yeah! 
We've started a new one

    General Commentdon't know how I feel about mae's recent stuff. Don't get me wrong I love may, DB has to be by far my favorite album of all time, everglow is fantastic too but I just don't know if their new stuff is clicking with me. Their old sound and lyrics kinda went away. I dunno, still support them and excited to hear their new stuff.
