Far away not long ago
When the chuch bells rang and life moved slow
people prayed for hope they prayed for rain

A woman she stood tall and proud with a heavy walk
voice so loud her
body aching she ignored the pain

Like she did the years before
Right outside her farmhouse door
Lite a match to burn it all again

The wind it blowed it didn't stop
The flame kept burning beyond the crop
It was rutless, took all it could claim

Wild fire she danced the night away
Took her by the hand there was nothing she could say
Wild fire brought her to her knees
When the dust finally settled there was nothing but the breeze

Tears ran down her somber face
All the things she can't replace
Answered prayers never brought the rain

Boy had yet become a man
She hoped one day he'd take the land
Black burnt soil is what remained


She looked upon her tragedies
Field of ashes wrigly leafless trees
Empire crumbled down to ruins

In her heart she held a blame
Never saw herself the same
Wouldn't answer to her name

[chorus x 2]
