She watched the valley burn
Like a slow dancer doing turns
My name was on every tongue

And all of the smoke and ash
like a memory of the time gone bad
Hanging like a shadow

So light it up again
Burn like a holy fire
Light me up again
if it makes you feel free
Light me again
Call me a snake and a liar
And I will be the fire that keeps you warm

Matches to gasoline
I could not keep my fingers clean
Enough for your gunpowder heart
And as I lit for the fuse
And ran for cover, where were you
Standing with your hands on the flames

So light it up again
Burn like a holy fire
Light me up again
if it makes you feel free
Light me again
Call me a snake and a liar
And I will be the fire that keeps you warm

Light it up again
Burn like a holy fire
light me up again
If it makes you feel free
Light me up again
Call me a snake and a liar
I will be the fire that keeps you warm
I will be the fire that keeps you warm

    Song MeaningThis is an excerpt from an interview Noah did:

    "In short, it's a breakup song. The idea is that sometimes people need to express their anger or frustration as a process of healing. I guess my character in that song is saying, "That's okay. If you need to be angry at me and that's going to make things better for you, then by all means express that anger.""
