02. Bonfire

We Won't Be Shaken
by Building 429



 

My mama always said I was born for this
And some people wouldnt like that I was different
It never really mattered how hard it would be
Cause she filled me with love and the strength to lead.

She said, Oooohaa
That kids a flame
Said Ooooha
That kids a flame
Hes gonna burn something down if you get in his way

I came to, light it up
Light it up, light it up
If I was born to be a flame
Then I wanna light a bonfire
Light it up, light it up, light it up
If I was born to be a flame
Then I wanna light a bonfire
Let it burn, let it burn
Let it burn, let it burn
Im gonna burn something down if you get in my way

This is the shout out, this is my voice
Calling all the men, women, girls and boys
The dropouts, the losers, the hurt and the broke
Time to reclaim what the darkness has stole

Marching to the beat of a different drum
We live for the love without counting the cost
If you wanna be free then its time to go
Lift up your hands so the world will know


We came to light it up
Light it up, light it up
If we were born to be a flame
Then were gonna light a bonfire
Light it up, light it up, light it up
If we were born to be a flame
Then were gonna light a bonfire
Let it burn, let it burn
Let it burn, let it burn
Were gonna burn something down if you get in our way

We are not meant to be silent
We are alive just to shine
We are not meant to be quiet
We are the light of the world
We gotta light, light, light it up

Oooohaa
That kids a flame
Said Ooooha
That kids a flame
Hes gonna burn something down if you get in his way

We came to light it up
Light it up, light it up
If we were born to be a flame
Then were gonna light a bonfire
Light it up, light it up, light it up
If we were born to be a flame
Then were gonna light a bonfire
Let it burn, let it burn
Let it burn, let it burn
Were gonna burn something down if you get in our way

Behind the Song:
My son is a bright red-headed kid. I should have been a red-head because I remember growing up how mom used to always say, You were born to be a flame. One day I was thinking about that and thinking, Whats my response to my mom saying I was born to be a flame? And then thats where that lyric came from, If I was born to be a flame, then I want to light a bonfire. We believe that we need to take who we are and go light the world on fire for Jesus Christ. Lets go light this place up. Thats the whole idea! - Jason Roy
