Looking for an exit in this world of fear
I can see the path that leads away
Mama never left, and daddy needs me here
I wish the wind would carry a change Looking through the window to a world of dreams I can see my future slip away Honey you won't get there if you don't believe I wish the wind would carry a change 
I've had enough I'm standing up
I need, I need a change I've had enough Of chasing luck
I need, I need a change 
I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
We starting fires,
We starting fires till our lives are burning gold
Till our lives are burning gold
 Looking for my ticket to a higher place
I can see my chance begin to fade
One step forward and two back again I wish the wind would carry a change 
I've had enough I'm standing up
I need, I need a change I've had enough Of chasing luck
I need, I need a change 
I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
We starting fires,
We starting fires till our lives are burning gold
Till our lives are burning gold
 Looking back I see I had the flame in me
I'm the wind that's carrying a change 
I've had enough Of chasing luck
I need, I need a change 
I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
We starting fires,
We starting fires till our lives are burning gold

I'm setting fire to the life that I know (I know)
Let's start a fire everywhere that we go (we go)
We starting fires,
We starting fires till our lives are burning gold
Till our lives are burning gold
