Lyrics: River of Fire

River of Fire (written by Stan Meissner and Glen Burtnik*, ©1992)

 

My life you hold in your heart

I look for the light, I wait in the dark

Burning emotions, I’m drawn to the flame

Chasing the shadows that call out your name

 

Searching for some kind of escape, I find my way right here to this place

‘Cause the night has no end

All of my life my dreams run wild, now I stand alone in this river of fire

Days of despair and nights of desire, I wait for you in this river of fire

 

I still remember the look in your eyes

I wish I knew then that it was goodbye

I try to fight it but I know I can’t win

Sometimes your dreams just get lost in the wind

 

Something beyond all time and space leads me right back here to this space

At the edge of this world

All of my life my dreams run wild, now I stand alone in this river of fire

Days of despair and nights of desire, I wait for you in this river of fire

 

Burn for you… burn for you… burn for you… burn for you…

 

All of my life my dreams run wild, now I stand alone in this river of fire

Days of despair and nights of desire, I wait for you in this river of fire

*The original composition had some differences in the first verse; I transcribed the lyrics as Benjamin sings them.
