Lyrics

Not When The Fire Is Raging

[G.S.Pultz and E.Luskin; pultzongs BMI].  

I was thinking about this life and the way we complicate it.  We seek control, and we fight, but can’t figure out how to mitigate it.  Lord don’t leave me; not when the fire’s raging. 

I was ruminating about the gunshots; in my home and just breathing.  How on earth do we start healing when we’re staring at the ceiling? Lord don’t leave me; not when the fire’s raging. 

Sometimes feeling damned and somehow forgiven.  Don’t know who to trust.  Feel so unprepared (with) a list of things gone wrong, a list that’s got so long, and the thoughts and prayers ain't getting nowhere. 

I was waiting on religion, staring at the news, and not believing.  Might be blamed on infatuation, but whatever it is, it is cruel.  Lord don’t leave me; not when the fire’s raging.  Lord don’t leave me; not when the fire’s raging.
