The Eternal Fire
by Henry Duthler
As the hours go by, and the days go past
The flames are dying and they're fading fast
And it hurts to see you drifting away.
Don't let it go, darling hold on tight
If we can fan the flames they can burn all night
And they'll be glowing through to the morning light.
The eternal fire's just a spark away
The time has come to rekindle the flames
Put the past behind us and see the brand new day
The eternal fire's just a spark away.
Love is the spark that ignites the flame
And it can keep us warm through the winds of change
And it hurts to think it's fading away.
I can't let it go, darling not tonight.
If we can shelter the flames on this stormy night
They can still be ours in the morning light.
