I wrote this a while back, it's about how sometimes the difficult things in life can make you a better person.

We're playing with fire just to see if it burns

And something I've learnt is sometimes life hurts And you can't see into those internal burns

But staying away from fire is nearly impossible to learn We dance through the flames, like Russian roulette

Pull the trigger, chances are you won't die yet And with chance in my hands, I rush through the flames

I learnt by example but you'll never get blamed The engulfing fires began to die down

And almost instantly I was left completely alone With a flammable heart I danced through the flames

I came out alive but never the same
