Song:   Keep The Flame Alive
Album:  The Road, The Pain

© Peter Huttinger

In this unmagical world, where adventures are a rare thing
the walls are coming down and you drown until your heart sings
a long forgotten song about life and ancient heroes.
Youíre head is growing heavy and you feel you gotta go.

Put on your leather stuff in which you once looked like a wild one.
Blow the dust from your guitar which once rang out in such a sweet tone.
Say goodbye to everything that became such a heavy load.
Donít look back in sadness now cause thereís one thing youíve always known -

You got to Keep the flame alive, keep the fire burning, where ever you arrive, where ever you will go.
You got the urge inside, the renegade is yearning. Your restless heart is wild, donít say it isnít so.
And may your way unfold Ė the stories never told.

The world you once lived in is nothing more than faded memories.
Your scars and all your sins remain close until youíve found peace.
You know thatís an illusion cause you know your restless heart.
And here out on the road what you find is your reward.

Many people feel like you but there ainít no perfect soulmate.
You sleep with fallen angels which are gone with every new day.
They seem sharing the same fate and hear voices just like you do.
A whisper on the wind that wonít stop until your timeís due.

Keep the flame alive, keep the fire burning, where ever you arrive, where ever you will go.
You got the urge inside, the renegade is yearning. Your restless heart is wild, donít say it isnít so.
And may your way unfold Ė the stories never told.
