Song Lyrics: A Song about a Relationship Ending and Finding Strength

I wrote this song at a time when I felt inspired to try my hand at lyric writing. I produced a handful of songs; all of them I heard in my mind as acoustic performances. This song, like the others, is about love and relationships - in this case, the singer is regaining strength following a breakup, and actually finds a new-found self-confidence that was missing before....

The Fire Burns Inside


Once I was your shadow

I hid behind my wall

But something flicked, a light was lit

It wasn't me at all

And now a fire burns inside

My heart, and I'm alive

Ignited by a passion

That tells me I'll survive


And I know I will

I know I will

I know I will survive



And can't you see me now

I'm laughing through the rain

You thought that I was drowning

But I'm right back up again

I'm not holding on, I'm fighting

Just giving all I can

I'm stronger now and unafraid

To be just who I am



The starry night consumes me

And everything is still

It's at that time

That quiet hour

Emotions overspill

I was swallowed by the dark, but then

The moon showed me my dreams

And the fire burns, my beacon,

And its burning just for me


The fire burns

And burns and burns

It's burning inside me



And can't you see me now,

I'm laughing through the rain

You thought that I was drowning

But I'm right back up again

I'm not holding on, I'm fighting

Just giving all I can

I'm stronger now and unafraid

To be just who I am



I shed my skin, I'm running

You'll never catch me now

You thought I wouldn't make it

But I knew I would somehow

My heart's alive and I will strive

I found the steel inside

It feels so good to finally

Get on the wild ride


And the fire burns

And the passion turns

And I've found the real me


Source

And can't you see me now

I'm laughing through the rain

You thought that I was drowning

But I'm right back up again

I'm not holding on, I'm fighting

Just giving all I can

I'm stronger now and unafraid

To be just who I am


And now the fire burns inside

My heart, and I'm alive

Ignited by a passion

I told you I'd survive
