Is there a fire in the sky
Is there a moon up there 
Is anything alive now
This darkness is what I hear
This is a breathless silence
A moment out of time
I see your face in the shadows 
The tell-tale signs are in your eyes

More than I can hold in my hand
 Running through the gaps like water  Aching with a passion inside
Deep as the river 
All desire 
The ashes and the fire
 Turning this night inside
And the light from you

Is there a flame in the dark
Is there a bright heart star
 These creatures look the same now
We freeze wherever we are
We wake alone in the blackness 
We sleep whenever we fall
One dream all around us
This big hush infects us all

 Holding up an animal fear
 Soaking up the waves underwater
 Tuned to music no-one can hear
 Forever in this half-light
All desire 
The ashes and the fire
 Turning this night inside
And the light from you

All desire 
The ashes and the fire
 Turning this night inside
And the light from you

More than I can hold in my hand
 Running through the gaps like water  Aching with a passion inside
Deep as the river 
All desire 
The ashes and the fire
 Turning this night inside
And the light from you

All desire 
The ashes and the fire
 Turning this night inside
 Turning this night inside
 Turning this night inside
And the light from you
