lyrics

Caught up in the dust and the smoke
Long ride for a short divide
Hacking away at the wood that squelched the fire
And fan the flames to save the light
But I'm here writing in pure moonlight
Wondering where the dryer leaves hide
And soon the campfire haze will roll away
And show me the stars again tonight

What if I woke up at the crack of dawn
Scanned a wild horizon in vain
But there was not a worry in sight
Just mountain pines and sugarcane
I'll brush my teeth in the pouring rain
And start to gather food for the day
And soon the campfire haze will roll away
And show me the stars again tonight

Now every time my heart skips a beat
I see those flames they dance
Hug the wood they wrap themselves around
It's the sound of death and slow decay
But look at the life those poor flames bring
Stay outside if your life's on fire
And soon the campfire haze will roll away
And show me the stars again tonight

And soon the campfire haze will roll away
And show me the stars again tonight
