Let Burn (On This Night)

On this night
We are the proudest we have ever been
We are the proudest we have ever been together
As we hold a little girl in our arms
As we hold our little girl in our arms on this night

We have everything to say
And be burn to hear our names
We weep at thinking of our lives
And all of the advice
That it’s our job to now give
To this little girl
To this little girl

Don’t let the years change you
From innocent, so cute and sweet
But don’t be afraid of when lives change
See, we remember the day that we questioned everything
And we asked ourselves why our hearts burned
For what they burned for, why our hearts burned
For what they burned for every day

So here’s to say, let your heart burn
Let it burn for what it will
Let it burn for what it will on this night

And now, when you have grown
You’ll be the age of twenty soon
And soon you’ll see
That life is full of doors
And there is hardly ever a key

So do your best to find the truth, because it’s out there
And love everyone who can’t love back, so you can see
The cost of giving everything and getting hurt
You’ll taste a beautiful pain that God once breathed
And only then will you agree that you have lived
Lived for what you have let burn

    Oh my. That was beautiful. I think one of my favorites. Not even kidding, it’s so emotionally compelling. So so so so good.

    I like this a lot.
    Perhaps it’s the pregnancy .. but I think it’s just because it’s “so so so so good” as Raq stated.
