The Fire I Love! In which I attempt to rap in the way that only a white boy who's never tried before can. Also there's a sweet synth solo. Enjoy!

LYRICS
---
Tough luck each time, that ain't new to me
I keep faith, work hard, trying to build a dream
But I barely can and my books are all red
Living off my savings
Trying to get to five figures
Need a roof on my head
And reality's not easy with my choices I get it
But you've got to compromise when your money's a limit
'Cause I got a dream, and it's going through
I'd give everything I have just to make it come true (and I will)
So okay, okay, things look grim
Every time I make a little gain
It's but a second 'til I'm brought down again
But this fire in me, it ain't giving up
Puts a smile on my face and a voice in my lungs

Yeah, yeah
And it's the fire I love
Yeah, yeah
And it's the fire I love

Almost two years trying to make it work
Step back, take a look, am I in the dirt?
No - I've accomplished too much
I am still a greenhorn but I've done some good stuff
And greenhorn, that word, that's the one that suits me
Unbound, low down, but I'm working a future out of
All this stuff
I'm building up
And the fire inside me is eating it, eating it up

Yeah, yeah
And it's the fire I love
Yeah, yeah
And it's the fire I love
Yeah, yeah
And it's the fire I love
Yeah, yeah
And it's the fire I love

My secret is hope
It keeps me going

This fire ain't giving up
A smile on my face, a voice in my lungs
You put the voice in my lungs

Yeah, yeah
And it's the fire I love
Yeah, yeah
And it's the fire I love
This fire ain't giving up (yeah, yeah)
And it's the fire I love
The journey is hard but it's a labour of love (yeah, yeah)
And it's the fire I love
