Nickel Creek — Why Should The Fire Die? lyrics

Why should the fire die
My mom and dad kept theirs alive
It's early yet, don't say goodnight
I know in time you'll be all right

You're shining still behind the clouds
Saying I won't figure you out
I like it true, but let me try
And try and try for the rest of my life

I'm not scared of being alone
I'm not scared of being alone, being alone

I'm just happier being confused
Beside the fire, as long as it's with you

Why should the fire die
My mom and dad kept theirs alive
It's getting late, she says goodnight
I fall asleep, I'll be all right
