Put your words into the fire
Watch them burn your heart's desire
Rise up in the air
In a cloud of silk and smoke and dust
Fade into the night
It's a comforting feeling with you at my side

Let me shake your honest hands
And I'll sit down beside you now
Lean our heavy heads
Of the weight of the things that are left unsaid
Don't worry about it now
'Cause in the morning they will all just be ashes on the ground

So what's been on your mind
Eating you inside
Taking all of your time
On this warm summer night
Put your words down in the fire

When we were down at sandy beach
Old man talking in young man's words
Tell me where you would like to be
Tonight don't be afraid to dream
Lean on the fire for a while
Cause in the morning it will all just be ashes on the ground

So what's been on your mind
Eating you inside
Taking all of your time
On this warm summer night
Put those words down in the fire

    Song MeaningIn a video you can see on youtube Patrick explains he wrote the song when he and the band were invited at a young people party in northern Quebec. Sitting around the fire, he got asked if he knew any Bob Marley song. He didn't but he decided he would wrote a song that would recreate the atmosphere of Marley. Very much like Redemption song :)
