Turn This Fire Around

(Greg Dean)
Turn this Fire Around

Yeah I’m under
Another stormy sky that I have made
And I don’t remember
When it was that I achieved this state
From drought to thunder
I never knew another kind of way
And it makes me wonder
I can’t explain the way that I behave
So I say

If I could turn this fire around
If I could use the words you say
If I could till this fertile ground
Then I know
That I would learn to burn a better way

Like a brimming river
I can’t seem to hold what I contain
Or a spinning twister
You can’t predict the way that I will take
But if I were stronger
I could reservoir the fuel that I create
Then I’d burn forever
Instead of being just a flash in space
So I say

If I could find a middle ground
Beneath the sun, beneath the shade
Then I could turn this fire around
And I would learn to burn a better way
