"And it's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most, not where you live, what you drive or the price tag on your clothes. There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind." - Zac Brown Band


If you can hold the fires without getting burned,
Your stinging sins will illuminate distraught skill
And sparks and lighters will bring you all you’ve earned

Set the earth on fire with the rings you’ve turned,
Love her not with your hands if only for the thrill
Unless you can hold the fires without getting burned

Light her up piece by piece hence my happiness adjourned
If your incendiary passion scorches skins to the chill,
Only sparks and lighters can bring all you’ve earned

Matchless efforts on my behalf, if anything you’ve learned,
Tend not to flicker despite excruciating pain, if you will,
And I can hold the fires without getting burned

Dynamite spiraling upward doesn’t have you concerned
I try to jumpstart emotions like lifeless fireworks in you still,
But only sparks and lighters can bring all you’ve earned

Reset the ticking clock. My heart’s beats have turned
Breaking through to my core, a miraculous pill
If you can hold the fires without getting burned,
Sparks and lighters will bring you all you’ve earned.
