06. Still Burning

Divine Discontent
by Sixpence None The Richer



 

You are the burning
The flame that is turning
My smoldering ash into a bird
So stay close my brother
I couldn't stand the loss
You are the bridge of action
I need you to help me cross
I need you to help me

So when you break my arms
I'll take hold of you
I know your heart is a hand that takes hold of me

My hand that is breaking
Is the hand that is making
All the dead things in me grow
A gift of a holy loss
This burning of the dross

So when you break my arms
I'll take hold of you
I know your heart is a hand that takes hold of me

Why do you set out to break the one thing
The one thing I have to give
It's hard to believe that I could
That I should begin again
But I know your heart is a hand

So when I break your arms
You'll take hold of me
You know my heart is a hand that takes hold of you
So when you break my arms
I'll take hold of you
I know your heart is a hand that takes hold of me
So when you break my arms
I'll take hold of you
I know your heart is a hand that takes hold of me



Behind the Song:
"'Still Burning' tries to explore the way suffering is a gift and a catalyst to help one transition to a better state of living. The chorus lines are inspired by Rilke. I like the image of the heart reaching out like a hand." - Matt Slocum (Sixpence None The Richer)
