Text

 

We’re born with a fuse
timed to ignite
It burns through our youth
then sets us alight
for a while
And when we’re older
we’ll laugh and say that we were only kids
but no one gets closer to the burn of love and loss than this

When the fires pass over
all you’ll recall
is the ash on your shoulders
some lines on your palm
The world’s made in motion
we’re carried along;
the current won’t hold for long

If you could stand your younger selves behind you
then turn and walk the line,
how many strangers might surprise you,
too changed by time to recognize

When the fires pass over
all you’ll recall
is the ash
on your shoulders
some lines on your palm
Memory relents
like rain melts the limestone
the years that you spent
in flame seem so strange now

– Dessa
