Every Star Is a Burning Flame
by Andrew Peterson

Album: The Burning Edge of Dawn


I pulled the car off to the side and walked along a starry hill in Idaho
A golden moon was rolling by, the ridge was like a window sill and I don't know
If I was on the outside looking in
Like maybe all the borders of the world were getting thin
And I could see the sky the way it's gonna be again

Every star is a burning flame
Every star is a burning flame

Well yesterday I trimmed the vines and spread the leaves along the ground in Tennessee
And I tried to hold it in my mind that all the light that's coming down takes ages to get to me
And I was on the inside looking out
I was lifted by a solar wind up over the clouds
And I could hear the hosts of heaven singing out loud

Every star is a burning flame
Every star is a burning flame

I remember Mr. Green and I were walking down a busy street in Louisville
The sign said Merton looked around and all the people passing by were shining like the sun and beautiful
And the wonder of it caught him by surprise
Oh Lord, I want to see the world with those eyes
I want to look into the night and see a million suns rise
Rise

All the heat comes running at the speed of light
From the reaches of space to these faces tonight

And every heart is a burning flame
Every heart is a burning flame
