"Together Burning Bright" as written by and Quinn Allman Jeph Howard....
Feel the pain wash over me
Feel the salt that's burning from my eyes
Feel the world move underneath me
Know there is no need for my disguise
Feel the screams as you take my hand

I understand the terror in your eyes
Feel I've lost myself completely
I need to know you're right here by my side
I won't pretend that we could live forever

I think it's gunna be alright, now
I think it's gunna be okay
Just close your eyes
Just we are just sparks
But together burning bright

I see the daylight start to fade
I see the cold move softly with the night
I feel the darkness stop to take me
Now I know there is nowhere to hide

Feel the world start caving in
I feel the hollow nothing left inside
No, I've lost myself completely
I need to know you're right here by my side
I won't pretend that we could live forever

I think it's gunna be alright, now
I think it's gunna be okay
Just close your eyes
'Cause we are only sparks
But together burning bright

I think it's gunna be alright, now
I think it's gunna be okay
Just close your eyes
'Cause we are only sparks
But together burning bright

Yeah together burning bright
(dah dah dah)
We are only sparks
But together burning bright

I won't pretend that we could live forever
I think it's gunna be alright, now
I think it's gunna be okay
Just close your eyes
'Cause we are only sparks
Together burning bright

I get the feeling it's alright, now
I get the feeling it's okay
Just close your eyes
Cause we are only sparks
But together burning bright

I think it's gunna be alright, now
I think it's gunna be okay
Just close your eyes
'Cause we are only sparks
But together burning bright

    Lyric Correctionits 'salt' instead of sock. Like tears... however to be fair it does sound like sock XD

    My OpinionI absolutely LOVE this song! I would say it's one of my favourites on the album, but I love most of the songs so it'd be pointless!

    I was thinking that this could be to do with facing death.

    From the beginning - "Feel the salt that's burning from my eyes, feel the world move underneath me... feel the screams as you take my hand" - wanting someone by your side. Looking at how fragile life is since "we are only sparks" but still wanting to spend what you have left with someone "together burning bright" for what little time remains.
    Then at the end "I feel the darkness stop to take me, Now I know there is no where to hide, Feel the world start caving in."

    My OpinionAwsome song, filled with emotions both sad and calm.
    Personally, I think this song has to do with facing a challenge, something really hard, either physically or more likely emotionally. But I think teamwork is a key point, it's something you do together with someone by your side in this song. I do agree with iamlovingthis that it could be about facing death.
