Artist's Description



This is a campfire I shot at our family reunion June of 2010. Fort Hill in Sturgis, Michigan USA. This was shot with my fujifilm finepix S1000 fd camera.

Who tends the fire
Who keeps the torches lit
Who fills your eyes with smoke
So you can’t see
I need the fire
I need the torches lit
to see through all the smoke covering me

I have seen the fires burning
burning through the night
I have watched the tides a-turning
and they go from dark to light

What is this meaning
What does this writing mean
Where do I go
What do I do for now
Prophecies are foolish
They never last
They never speak the truth
So why are they calling me now

I have seen the fires burning
burning through the night
I have watched the tides a-turning
and they go from dark to light

I don’t know cause I cannot see
all I’m sure is I gotta be
I’m not sure that I’m even me
but I know that I gotta be

You don’t know that you’re gonna die
Birth, life, death, is the reason why
Save those tears that you’re gonna cry
Cause I know that you’re gonna die

Yes I know but I cannot see
And I’m sure that I gotta be
All these voices are killin’ me
But they say that I got
Say that I got
Say that I gotta be me.

Who tends the fire
Who keeps the torches lit
Who fill your eyes with smoke
So you can’t see
I need the fire
I need the torches lit to see

I have seen the fires burning
burning through the night
I have watched the tides a-turning
still the fire burning bright
