[Am]It starts with a spark, a breath and a moment of sti[Em]ll,
A flicker, a glow, as the oxygen [Dm]spills through a delta of spindles and stone,
[E]Kindled from nothing in a whisper of smoke.
[Am]And there a gift ignites; a cursive thought takes fl[Em]ight,
And there's a dancer, twisting in between the spines.
[Dm]Give her the breather's kiss, and watch her spirit lif[E]t,
She'll take over the stage, and she'll own the nigh[F]t.
Learning how to make a nam[Am]e from the wo[G]rds we can't keep i[F]n.
Learning h[C]ow to strike a flame[Am], and draw hell[G]fire from nothing.
[C]I don't know where to be[Am]gin, to make t[Em]hese words take shape,
[C]How to nurture a f[Am]lame, and raise it t[F]o a blaze[C]
That on the clearest nig[Am]ht can be s[Em]een foreve[C]r.
I don't know where to be[Am]gin, begi[F]n again.[C]
C //// Am /// Em / C //// x2 (second time end with Am)
[Am]It's not enough, cause outside the night is still col[Em]d.
The fog is collected on the sill.[Dm]
Feed the house to the fire to let out the [E]light,
Consumed and inspired, burned magnesium white.[Am]
It spills from the hearth.
Take the curtains, the[Em] carpet to fuel the insatiable fire in[Dm]side.
We'll set fire to a hill, so intense that it will be the b[E]rightest star
on this side of the sky.[F]
Learning how to make a name[Am] from the wo[G]rds we can't keep i[F]n.
Learning h[C]ow to strike a flam[Am]e, and draw hel[G]lfire from nothing.
[C]I don't know where to beg[Am]in, to make the[Em]se words take shape,
[C]How to nurture a fl[Am]ame, and raise it [F]to a blaze[C]
That on the clearest nigh[Am]t can be seen[Em] forever.[C]
I don't know where to b[Am]egin, beg[F]in again.[C]

[C]I don't know where to begin, to make these words take shape,
[Am]How to nurture a flame, and raise it to a blaze
[Em]That on the clearest night can be seen forever.
[F]I don't know where to begin, begin again.
