lyrics

Two embers in the fire faced one another
Said to the other what are you doing here?
Although I question carefully your presence
I am so grateful for your company in the fire

Until we're gone gone gone gone gone
Gone gone gone gone
Gone gone gone gone gone
When the flames have all burned down
What will remain?

Wood, flames, embers burn to ash
Throw the ash down and let the trees grow once again.
From the trees you cut the wood to build your fire
So build your fire and let it all burn down again

Until it's gone gone gone gone gone
Gone gone gone gone
Gone gone gone gone gone
When the flames have all burned down
What will remain?

Sit, reflect, accept the heat you feel
Though it burns you through
In fire the flame you are it is revealed
This is the change

Now you're gone gone gone gone gone
Gone gone gone gone
Gone gone gone gone gone
When the flames have all burned down
Then you'll remain
