The Spark
Lyrics and Music by Dave Keller


VERSE 1
There's a fire that I've seen
Right behind your eyes
A kind of desperation in the flame
Like you're tryin' to live
Before you've got to die
Tryin' to bring some honor to your name
But you don't know how
And you don't know why
It's so damn hard to face another day
But you won't give up
No you can't give up
I wanna reach out and say

CHORUS
That fire you feel
It may flicker
You may wander in the dark
The hands of time move quicker
But don't forget, please don't forget
You are the spark

VERSE 2
There are seas of sadness
That swallow us whole
Hills and valleys block our way
Caves of loneliness
Beyond our control
Roads with tolls too high to pay
But when the sun
Is sinking
And you find yourself alone
I know
What you're thinking
It's time to find your way home
