I'm building a fire
To keep you warm
Long after I retire.
'Cause this body is
Bound to expire tonight, tonight.

And the embers will glow,
Remind you what you already know:
That the night
Is only a temporary absence
Of light, of light, of light, of light.

In the morning you'll wake,
The ashes, the memory,
And the sun on your face.
And I will not seem so far away.
Arise, you're alive. Arise, you're alive.
