This World Is Fire


This world is fire
This world is steel
But don't let it harden you
In everything that you feel
This world is hard
This world is cold
but don't let it freeze out
Everyone that you hold

Sometimes you have to let someone inside
Because that are places deep for hurt and pain to hide
Sometimes you have to tell everyone that you love
I've been sitting and wondering about all the stars above
There are times we look at ourselves and cry
But that's ok, it just makes a harder try
We have to measure ourselves to no one but our heart
We are all different, but yet we're so much a part
Tell those you love just how you feel
Can't be anything stranger, that this life which we deal

This world is fire
This world is steel
But don't let it harden you
In everything that you feel
This world is hard
This world is cold
but don't let it freeze out
Everyone that you hold

Sometimes you have to sit back, watch the crazy world
Just remember, kid, your always our little girl
There'll be times, you no longer, have the strength to run
Tired inside, feeling that you just haven't won
But that's ok, we fool ourselves with that win or lose
What more important is the roads that we decide to choose
Don't put yourself in this imaginary race
We do our best, and live with our hearts; face-to-face
To yourself be true, everything that you do
With that, we couldn't be more proud of you

This world is fire
This world is steel
But don't let it harden you
In everything that you feel
This world is hard
This world is cold
but don't let it freeze out
Everyone that you hold
