you make my life a fire


United States

You make my life a fire

standing beside my doors, you yell

out as if you were a crier

You tell me to ring the bells

to alert others who aspire


You make my life a fire

parade me as a sort of torch

conduct the enlightened choir

you waltz onto the porch 

to watch the sun retire


You make my life a fire

strengthen me so I may quell

defeat and live to inspire

You say break the man's spells, 

so tire the night  like a fire.
