Oh, there was a time
when I held fire in the palm of my hand
Yeah, I tell you there was a time
when I held fire in the palm of my hand

Don't know how, no, I don't know how
We would stand around on the corner
Folks mesmerised, couldn't take their eyes
off the fire, the fire in my hand

We watched it burn, we watched those flames
dancing with my fingers 'til my fingers turned black
We wondered, we wondered where it came from
and now I wonder will it ever come back

Oh, goin' in bad way when you lose your fire
Goin' bad way when you lose your fire
and I've no idea where it's gone

With every fire that now lights and every lit cigarette
every candle reminds you of the old days
when you watched it burn, you watched those flames
dancing with my fingers 'til my fingers turned black

We wonder, we wonder where we came from
and now I wonder will it ever come back
