Sometimes I forget about the fire
inside that smoulders slowly
in that place of inspiration
where fear and pride conspire.
That first kiss when my hand shook
That wild look while dice are dancing
Fate holds hands with second chances
and I forgot to breathe.
It's in times of unanswered questions
when the lessons seem to stick
and if it didn't hurt a little
wisdom wouldn't be worth spit
I see that spark in my child's eye
and I remember why I keep that fire alive
Today the Toads are looking at what inspires us - I chose the first live rock and roll show I ever saw live April Wine in 1979 in the Kamloops Memorial Arena at the tender age of 13.
