Touch the Fire

So what I touched the fire?

What if it hurt?

I don't care,

Just wanna feel the spark,

Even if it burns.

I needed some light,

To say I was alive.



I don't wanna quit playin'
games,

I Just want to stay me,

No matter what that means,

Happy to play with fire,

Just to feel something



My heart's growing numb,

Just wanted to let you know,

This is how I let go,

I'm just doing as told,

So why don't you smile?



So what I touched the fire?

What if it hurt?

I don't care,

Just wanna feel the spark,

Even if it burns.

I needed some light,

To say I was alive.



No more rules to follow,

No more meanings to decode,

Here I am letting out and letting it go,

I'm just doing as told



What if I like fire?

If I like to make mistakes?

If I like to get burned?

Can't you understand

That, that's what it takes?



It's the only way to learn,

The only way to be me,

The only way I can know I'm still breathing.



So what I touched the fire?

I knew it would burn me,

but I just had to try.
