I touch the fire, and it freezes me
I look into it, and it's black
Why can't I feel?
My skin should crack and peel
I want the fire back
Now, through the smoke, she calls to me
To make my way across the flame
To save the day
Or maybe melt away
I guess it's all the same

So I will walk through the fire
Because where else can I turn?
I will walk through the fire
And let it . . .

The torch I bear is scorching me
Buffy’s laughing, I've no doubt
I hope she fries
I'm free if that bitch dies
I better help her out

Because she is
Drawn to the fire
Some people . . .

She will never learn

And she will walk through the fire
And let it . . .

Will this do a thing to change her?
Am I leaving Dawn in danger?
Is my Slayer too far gone to care?

What if Buffy can't defeat it?

Beady eyes is right, we're needed
Or we could just sit around and glare

We'll see it through
It's what we're always here to do
So we will walk through the fire

So one by one, they turn from me
I guess my friends can't face the cold

What can't we face?

But why I froze
Not one among them knows
And never can be told

She came from the grave much graver

One by one, they come to me

First, I’ll kill her, then I’ll save her

Everything is turning out so dark

Going through the motions

No, I’ll save her, then I’ll kill her

I think this line's mostly filler

What's it going to take to strike a spark?

It's what they have inside

She will come

These endless days
Are finally ending in a blaze

And we are caught in the fire
The point of no return
So we will walk through the fire
And let it burn
Let it burn
Let it burn
And let it burn!

    General CommentI love this. I think the ending is the funniest thing ever with the firetrucks zooming by when they're saying "Let it burn" :P Personally I thought this is the best song from the episode. I love Spike in this, he gets so mad and then he goes to help her!! :P I love Spike... He's da bomb, yo! ...

    General Commenti really love the way she says "through"... she puts the accent very well, if you think about it... very good song, as well as all the whole cd.

    General Commentgiles is out of tune on the word "gone" cuz it's out of his range which i find really stupid for them to have written that. there are other notes that could have worked that could have been in his range, stupid.

    great song tho, great lyrics.
