Light A Fire

Windshield wipers ticking away like a metronome in the rain
Visions of a subway dwarf laughing inside my brain
Funny what a year can do
What you can win from the things you lose

So I don my former disguise and stand naked on the stage
Holding back the tears from the years overshadowed by envy and rage
The storm is passing over now
I can finally see far beyond the clouds

Where there's a new life that's beginning
Upon a road much less deceiving
Now with every new dawn breaking...with every new dawn breaking
We'll light a fire...we'll light a fire

Didn't get much sleep last night, Jersey girl was in my head
Shoulda told her not to drive, I could've taken her home instead
She called to say she made it back ok
And that she found a new place to stay

Where there's a new life that's beginning
Upon a road much less deceiving
Now with every new dawn breaking...with every new dawn breaking
We'll light a fire...we'll light a fire
