Someone put the fire out
But I'm still in a daze
I guess shared moments pass quickly
when you're going two different ways

In the house where we sought cover
From the storm where we were caught
Turned out a terrible meeting place
And a very good lightning rod

And it's all over but the smoke
And the wind it curls around, oh
And everywhere to my face and hair it clings

You know fire burns on hope
Now there's nothing but the smoke
The alarm was just to loud to let it ring

A fire burns so high and proud
'Til there's no more heights to scale
And the elements don't always
Quite provide a rationale

One looks in the mirror
And sees a flame so bright
And once sees past reflection
And deep into the night

And it's all over but the smoke
And the wind it curls around, oh
And everywhere to my face and hair it clings

You know fire burns on hope
Now there's nothing but the smoke
The alarm was just to loud to let it ring

And it's all over but the smoke
And the wind it curls around, oh
And everywhere to my face and hair it clings

You know fire burns on hope
Now there's nothing but the smoke
The alarm was just to loud to let it ring

The alarm was just to loud to let it ring
