Everyone thinks a flame can only burn.

Well, they have a lot to learn.

Because I know a flame,

that can help to ease my pain.

If only they would stop looking at all you're not.

I'm the one who fought through the same battles you fought.

You are my healing flame.

Together we can wash away the shame.

I can't deny it any longer.

When I think of you it makes me stronger.

I know with you is where I truly belong.

I realize now, I've loved you all along.

My only comfort is your fiery blaze.

Because we're the same in different ways.

Both of us have made the same mistakes.

To be with you there is a sacrifice I must make.

Don't listen to what everyone tells you.

You're a good person--this much I know is true.

But will we ever end up together?

Will we be separated this way forever?

You are my healing flame.

Together we can wash away the shame.

I can't deny it any longer.

When I think of you it makes me stronger.

I know with you is where I truly belong.

I realize now I've loved you all along.

My only comfort is your fiery blaze.

Because we're the same in different ways.

I know I'll be with you when the time comes.

And we'll both be forgiven for what we've done.

Even though we're different, inside we're the same.

I'll always love you--my healing flame
