Let me be the flame tonight,
the heat in your soul to heal your heart
and help keep it whole.
I will be the campfire for you to sit around,
where you can sing your songs of sin,
share your stories of sorrow,
surrender to the sweet simplicity of hope.
I can crackle and pop with life,
burst sparks in righteous outrage,
comfort with a smoky lullaby of love.
Let my candle-flame be your light tonight,
just bright enough to touch my wick to yours
so that wickedness of the world
is surpassed by our wonder.
