V1

She put a match to his letter
She stood there and watched it burn
She didn’t feel any better
But at least it was a lesson learned

That paper burned to cinders
She gunned the engine and she drove away
But one small ember took to the breeze
And set the woods on fire that day

CHORUS

There was fire on that mountain
Flames to kingdom come
Higher than the canyons
Hotter than the sun

She was burning for redemption
She must have lost her mind
Hearts on fire leave more than ashes behind

V2

She went driving down that canyon
She was running from the reasons why
He couldn’t bring himself to love her
It was all there in black and white

And the fire on that mountain
Was like a fever in her soul
But there ain’t no explanation
For the chill that went right to her bones

CHORUS

There was fire on that mountain
Flames to kingdom come
Higher than the canyons
Hotter than the sun

She was burning for redemption
She must have lost her mind
Hearts on fire leave more than ashes behind

BRIDGE

She went raging down that canyon
She was driving blind
No skidmarks at the place where
She crossed the centre line
