To Carry Fire

This song is dedicated to all the participants in Living Myth Living World, and to my brother in arms Martin Shaw.

With a flame in the heart
As the hands work their art
As the drum and the voice entwine
Every gesture unfolds
To bring culture and soul
Alive

For the heart and the hands require
To carry fire.
Yes the heart and the hands require
To carry fire

There are five sparks aglow
In the stories you know
And they long for your breath
To burn
So we pray for the skill
For the courage and will
To return

For the heart and the hands require
To carry fire.
Yes the heart and the hands require
To carry fire

Alexander made his wall
of shadow and amnesia
The Mythsinger will recall
All we are
All we’ve been denied
From the other side
Reclaimed

For the heart and the hands require
To carry fire.
Yes the heart and the hands require
To carry fire
