lyrics

When it came for us we were all asleep.
My young brother Joseph was havin' a dream.
And my mother was resting, a long day gone.
When she woke in the night, thinking she'd fall.

And the room was dark, you couldn't see nowhere.
There was smoke in the hallway, smoke on the stairs.
And a great bright light, like no other pain.
Was it god or the devil calling my name?

But oh the fire, how it raged so long.
Oh the fire, well it took it all.

And Aunt Mary was sleeping in the room upstairs.
And she never woke, from one world to the next.
I hope she was quick, I hope she was calm.
Don't leave me to suffer, lord do me no harm.

But oh the fire, how it raged so long.
Oh the fire, well it took it all.

And my father was out, he was working all night.
Driving strangers home by crescent moonlight.
By the time he arrived, well all good was done.
In the blink of an eye all you love is gone.

But oh the fire, how it raged so long.
Oh the fire, it took it all.

And you can hear my mother out in the street
Where are my children? Take them to me
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
They're in a better place now, believe this I must.

But oh the fire, how it raged so long.
And oh the fire, well it took it all.
