Love, Where Is Your Fire?

Have you ever found a song that seemed to say everything you wanted to say about love and waiting and refusing the cheap imitations the world offers? Brooke Fraser has always been such an inspiration to me, and in this song, she says exactly what I think and believe about the topic. I sing this song for me and for everyone who desires the real blazing kind of love. :)


Love, where is your fire? I’ve been sitting here smoking away
Making signals with sticks and odd ends and bits, still there’s no sign of a flame
Imposters have been passing, offering a good-feeling glow
But I’m holding out for what you are about – an inferno that burns to the bone
Some urge me to be temperate, lukewarm will never do

Cause I, I wanna blaze with you
So I’m holding my heart out to you
Holding my heart out

So I stand, handing out torches
speaking words that are lamps to their feet
Til the time when you come an I’m whole and we are one and the fire in me is complete
Some tell me to be moderate but lukewarm will never do

Then a doubt comes to lie at the back of my mind
That I’ll offer you me and you’ll politely decline
So i hasten to mute it, I’ll shout and rebuke it – “away!”
