"Church on Fire" as written by Rick Allan Price, Pamela P Reswick and Stephen Elliott Werfel....
The room was dark
The moon was shining bright
I held you and we kissed goodnight
Then through the window
That ungodly light
Was I asleep were you awake
Did I arrive just too late
Is there something you're not saying
I should know

Tell me who set this church on fire
Why is everything we love
Burning to the ground
Tell me who set this church on fire
Is everything that's sacred fallin' down

The saints and sinners in the stained glass
They whisper to me as I pass
There's nothing in this world that lasts
Did someone toss a match away
A careless gesture, who can say

Tell me who set this church on fire
Why is everything we love
Burning to the ground
Tell me who set this church on fire
Is everything that's sacred fallin' down

A shout came from the second floor
And someone ran out the back door
Could he have been the parish priest
A worshipper trapped in the heat
Or was he the one who set the flames to burn

Tell me who set this church on fire
Why is everything we love
Burning to the ground
Tell me who set this church on fire
Is everything that's sacred fallin' down
