World is on Fire

Sarah McLachlan is one of my favourite singers and one which I really really admired when I was a teenager growing up in Bukit Mertajam. Well here's one of her latest songs, which is just sooo amazing. Check out her performance on Oprah. It's pretty inspiring. :)

Artist: Sarah Mclachlan
Album: Afterglow
Title: World on fire

Hearts are worn
In these dark ages
You're not alone,
In these stories' pages
The light has fallen
Amongst the living and the dying
And I'll try to hold it in
Yeah I'll try to hold it in

The world is on fire
It's more than I can handle
I'll tap into the water
Try and bring my share
Try to bring more, more than I can handle
Bring it to the table
Bring what I am able ...

I watch the heavens
But I find no calling
Something I can do to change what's coming
Stay close to me
While the sky is falling
I don't wanna be left alone,
Don't want to be alone...

Hearts break ... hearts mend ... love still hurts
visions clash ... planes crash
Still there's talk of saving souls
Still the cold is closing in on us

We part the veil on our killer sun
Stray from the straight line
On this short run ...
The more we take the less we become
The fortune of one man means less for some
