Start A Fire
Passenger Lyrics


I was born a baby boy a long time ago
Back when the hillsides were green and the water would flow
But nights they fall and settle like snow
I watched as the hillsides turned white with nowhere to go

Oh, think I'm gonna start a fire
Oh, think I'm gonna start a fire

Now my heart's a frozen lake where streams used to flow
Down to the forest of my mind where memory would grow
Now I walk amongst the trees where the last sun glows
The leaves are all golden and brown with nowhere to go

Oh think I'm gonna start a fire
And oh think I'm gonna start a fire now

My skin like these boulders
Is cracking and older
With each passing year that goes
My cliff face is crumbling
Silently tumbling
Down to the water below
And if I light a match I'll be able to catch
The last sun before it goes

And oh well, I think I'm gonna start a fire
Oh think I'm gonna start a fire
And oh, think I'm gonna start a fire now

I was born a baby boy a long time ago
Back when the hillsides were green and the water would flow
But nights they fall and settle like snow
I watched as the hillsides turned white with nowhere to go

Oh think I’m gonna start a fire
Oh think I’m gonna start a fire

Now my heart’s a frozen lake where streams used to flow
Down to the forest of my mind where memory would grow
Now I walk amongst the trees where the last sun glows
The leaves are all golden and brown with nowhere to go

Oh think I’m gonna start a fire
Oh think I’m gonna start a fire

My skin like these boulders
Is cracking and older
With each passing year that goes
My cliff face is crumbling
Silently tumbling
Down to the water below
And if I light a match I’ll be able to catch
The last sun before it goes

And oh well I think I’m gonna start a fire
Oh think I’m gonna start a fire
And oh think I’m gonna start a fire now

I heard the song let her go a while ago and today I decided to check out his other songs to see if he is any good, and here I am five hours later still listening to passenger. Man im getting this guy some recognition. Im just a junior in high school, but everyone I know is gonna know about this guy. And when they like it, hopefully they'll tell more people and he'll get popular. Because I have almost never heard such good music, and I feel like everyone needs to hear this.
