Barnacle Bill: Music

Thousand Year Old Flame

(Naslas)
say you don't know
when you're born
it seems a long
time ago but
think of all
the years you've worn
and then recall
the time before that
and hear the names
you used to call out
think of all
the pages torn
your fever's gone
but your heart's warm

time does make it clear
you won't remember every fear

thousand year old flame
thousand year old senior smile
just the same old name
fire's been hot for a while

no one else
can prove you wrong
it's in your hands
as you stand at the mirror
this is not
a love forlorn
there's only you
your wrinkles too
yeah you look ahead
always remember
think my ears are ringing true

thousand year old flame
thousand year old senior smile
just the same old name
fire's been hot for a while

will there be tomorrow
will I see tomorrow

thousand year old flame
thousand year old senior smile
just the same old name
fire's been hot for a while
