Firebird (the Tree & the Phoenix)

Tilt your shoulders back
Straighten out your arms
Open up your fingers one by one
Look me in the eye
Face me without fear
Let me see the wonder you’ve become
Overnight

I could be an empty tree
And you’d be happy without me
But find me when your wings grow tired
Firebird

All those years I gave
Nurturing that flame
Trying just to save you in my way
Did I dream alone, or
Have you always known?
Secretly afraid of what you are
Fly from here

Or I’ll become a burning tree
With all of you consuming me
And surely perish in the flames
Fly from here
I’ll remain an empty tree
And you’ll be happy without me
But find me when your wings grow tired

Fire
Fire
Firebird
